After getting arrested last week on DUI, Marshawn Lynch, who has 2 prior convictions and a prior 3 game suspension, is facing suspension from the NFL. According to the Sports Xchange’s Len Pasquarelli, the Seahawks are “holding their breath” as the NFL reviews the situation of their recently paid 31 million dollar back (over 3 years). He should get some sort of suspension.

Pasaquarelli also reports that Robert Turbin, a 4th round rookie, would likely start for the Seahawks if Lynch is suspended. This makes sense because #2 back Leon Washington is purely a change of back/pass catching/return man type of a running back. Turbin, currently 3rd on the depth chart, has the build and skill set to carry the load. He has definitely fantasy upside, especially as a handcuff for Marshawn Lynch owners.

  1. if
    lynch is suspended he should lose pay for each game he is suspended, the Hawks shouldn’t pay for his juvenile behavior.
    unfortunately may of the NFL players are 26 going on 15 going from college to the NFL with no reality check in between.

    Turban doesn’t seem to be a step down for the seahawks at all.

  2. Turbin can do it!!!
    we belive in you!!
    show the nfl what your here for dude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
