Will Marshawn Lynch retire this offseason instead of getting a new Seahawks deal?

Seahawks general manager John Schneider was on the Brock and Salk morning show on Seattle’s 710 ESPN radio today talking a lot about Marshawn Lynch.

As he said to us Seahawks beat reporters a couple weeks ago, Schneider reiterated how huge the 1,500-yard, 19-touchdown running back is to the Seahawks’ plans for the 2015 season and foreseeable future.

“Obviously, we think he’s a hell of a player. We want to have him back. He knows that. His representatives know that,” Schneider said today. “He knows that if he’s back he’s not going to be playing at the same

The Marshawn Lynch these Seahawks know is just having his own fun with everyone else

The Marshawn Lynch the Seahawks know is not the one the rest of America sees and hears. It’s not the Lynch that’s likely to have another standoff of some kind with establishment tomorrow here at the annual circus called the Super Bowl’s media day.

“Yeah, I think a lot of people misunderstand Marshawn,” teammate and safety Kam Chancellor said today at the Arizona Grand Resort, following the Seahawks’ first practice of Super Bowl week at Arizona State University in neighboring Tempe. “Just because he doesn’t want to talk to the media doesn’t make

Praising DE O’Brien Schofield and S Jeron Johnson, Russell Wilson’s two words of advice for Johnny Manziel; Earl Thomas the punt returner

Malcolm Smith was all the rage yesterday at practice, his first full one since surgery in the spring to clean out his ankle. His twisting, leaping, one-armed interception was remarkable — even for a Tuesday in August — and that is what I lead with in today’s News Tribune.

–The notebook story details the NFL’s new rules on practice squads, highlighted by them now being 10-man squads instead of eight. Honestly, I’m still working through the permutations of the new rule and trying to apply them to which Seahawks may now be practice-squad eligible that weren’t before Tuesday.

Carroll on 710 ESPN Seattle: Browner is questionable for Sunday

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll joined Danny O’Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle to talk about the health of his team heading into Sunday’s game at Carolina.

Listen to the conversation here.

Carroll said that cornerback Brandon Browner will be questionable with a hamstring injury. However, starting defensive tackles Brandon Mebane (groin) and Tony McDaniel (groin) are expected to play.

Carroll also said that defensive end Chris Clemons and Cliff Avril are on the verge of getting back. Avril was a full participant in practice on Thursday, returning from a lingering hamstring issue.

And Clemons continues to look strong returning from ACL knee surgery in January, although he was listed as having not practiced on Thursday. Clemons participated in some early work at the beginning of practice both days this week.

And without saying it directly, Moffitt inferred that he wasn’t’ given a fair shot to earn a starting job in Seattle

Listen to the interview here.

“The way it was explained to me is that they needed D-lineman,” Moffitt said about the trade. “And I was the most valuable guy they could part with. And that was that. Honestly, I look at it as business. And I just keep playing ball.”

Carroll on 710 ESPN Seattle: Miller will not play vs. Packers

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll joined Brock Huard and Danny O’Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle this morning.

Listen to the conversation here. The conversation begins about 30 minutes in.

Miller has been out since the beginning of training camp with a foot issue, although Carroll has consistently said the injury is unrelated to the torn plantar fascia Miller suffered against Atlanta in the NFC Divisional playoffs.

However, Miller was activated off the physically unable to perform (PUP) list last week, and expected to practice this week beginning on Tuesday.

“It’s kind of some of the problems you get when you have a really young team, but that’s no excuse. We have to make sure we’re all available for all 16 games.”
