Marshawn Lynch stares down question on contract, expansive on how he uses his foundation: “It gives inner-city youth an opportunity”

Well, that was an interesting seven minutes I just spent with Marshawn Lynch at his locker.

Rich Gang’s “Lifestyle” was boomin’ over Lynch’s personal sound system into my ear and recorder — believe me, I didn’t know the song; Liz Matthews of 710ESPN radio in Seattle asked him what it was. The Seahawks’ star running back who has had as many 1,000-yard seasons in the NFL as he’s had media interviews in the last 12 months, sat at his locker following practice this afternoon here in Renton. He picked through a huge drawer of worn turf shoes, high-tops and cleats

Seahawks sign WR/PR/KR Bryan Walters to active roster, so Earl Thomas may not be returning punts after all

All of you adverse to risk — at least when it comes to Seattle’s All-Pro safety being a standing target for opponents on 40-yard sprints right at him — rejoice!

The Seahawks have signed back wide receiver/punt returner/kick returner Bryan Walters to their active roster three days after releasing him among their final preseason cuts.

Walters is back on the practice field here at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton right now wearing his familiar No. 19.

The team announced the move about 90 minutes after Pete Carroll was asked during his weekly press conference today here at the Virginia

When Monday is a Thursday: Seahawks three days from opener

Happy Labor Day. Hope you have a chance to relax and enjoy — including as you read this, of course.

This is no holiday for the Seahawks or Packers. Yesterday was a Wednesday and today is a Thursday for them.

A normal practice week has been condensed and accelerated to a Sunday-through-Wednesday practice schedule for Thursday’s NFL opener between Seattle and Green Bay. So this afternoon’s workout at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center for the Seahawks will be like what a lighter, Thursday practice usually is with a Sunday game during the regular season.

Coach Pete Carroll will conduct his

Percy Harvin returns from “personal matters” as Seahawks begin full preparations for Green Bay

 

Cancel the civil-defense alarms. Bring back the search parties. Percy Harvin is back with the Seahawks.

I can hear your sighs of relief from here. They effectively erase the angst over Harvin being granted three days last week — including missing the exhibition finale last Thursday at Oakland — to deal with what coach Pete Carroll and the team said were “personal matters.”

I’m told those matters were indeed innocuous. That plus the fact he was zooming around the fields at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center again this morning during the team’s first practice of a regular-season game week

Raiders 41, Seahawks 31: Postgame reaction blog

Well, well. What have we here?

The Seattle Seahawks finished the exhibition season Thursday night with an ugly, 41-31, loss to the Raiders in Oakland.

Don’t let the final score fool you, either, it wasn’t that close.

The Seahawks offense looked great for the one series Russell Wilson captained at quarterback, opening the scoring with a four-play, 80-yard drive that culminated with a 25-yard strike to tight end Luke Willson.

After that, Oakland flexed its offensive might (did I really just write that?).

Rookie QB Derek Carr had a field day against Seattle’s No. 1 and No. 2 defense, completing

Percy Harvin not on Seahawks’ trip to Oakland because of “personal matter”; eight others will not play in exhibition finale

That above might be the most we see of Seattle’s No. 24 tonight here in Oakland.

Seahawks starters are likely for cameos and not much more in the exhibition finale beginning at 7 p.m. (Channel 13, 710 AM and 97.3 FM radio in the Puget Sound area, with our live chat beginning at 6:30 p.m. PT on thenewstribune.com/sports). And no starter plays less in the exhibition season than #24 Marshawn Lynch, who graduated from Oakland Tech High School about a 10-minute drive from the Oakland Coliseum and then played for Cal in neighboring Berkeley. His only carries of the preseason

“Game”day in Oakland. Final Seahawks jobs to be determined tonight: “There’s stuff that’s in the balance”

The starters won’t get much more than a cameo, if that, tonight in Oakland. But the Seahawks have some issues to settle behind those guys in the final exhibition game before the opener against Green Bay a week from tonight at CenturyLink Field.

“This is a big final step for us … a lot of guys with opportunities. A lot of guys battling for spots,” coach Pete Carroll said. “It’s a highly competitive final opportunity. So it’s a big deal for us.

“We are hoping to show gives and (give) them the opportunity to make this club.”

Leave it “Always
