Marshawn Lynch RB Seattle Seahawks

Running back Marshawn Lynch was stuck in a 3 RB by committee with the shitty Buffalo Bills, and despite the amount of Applebees in the Buffalo area, he wanted out this offseason. He didn't get it initially, and didn't show up to OTA's and other offseason practices, but showed up finally figuring to play out his contract or get a trade during the season. He had an ankle injury throughout the preseason, but started 3 games before finally getting traded to the Seattle Seahawks for a 4th round pick. He leaves the Fred Jackson/CJ Spiller committee, and joins the Justin Forsett/Leon Washington committee.

Lynch comes with baggage though. In 2007 he was accused of sexual assault on a former girlfriend, a charge that never came to because of "grave inconsistencies" with the girls stories, and a restraining order that she put out against Lynch was dropped, well because she was a lying whore. In 2008 Lynch hit a intoxicated girl that was dancing in the street, and drove away. Lynch later apologized and plead guilty to failure to exercise due care to avoid striking a pedestrian. Just days after his Pro Bowl trip in 2009 Lynch was pulled over and officers smelled marijuana in his Mercedes Benz, the police found a loaded gun and Lynch was arrested on a felony charge that was reduced to 3 misdemeanors and no drug charges were ever filed. He ended up pleading guilty to just one of the gun charges, the other 2 were dropped, and he was sentenced to 3 years probation among other things. Lynch was suspended 3 games from the NFL for that incident and any other run ins with the law figures to be a longer suspension, most like in the 8 game variety. Just show him the nearest Applebees or Dave & Busters in Seattle and he should be fine.
