Love for Lynch The Seattle Seahawks gave Marshawn Lynch a four-year, $32 million extension with $18 million guaranteed, an impressive commitment to a player who was traded for a fourth-round pick and a conditional sixth-rounder by the Buffalo Bills in 2010. I vividly remember Lynch coming through the Green Bay Packers' offices before the 2007 draft, as he was a serious candidate for our top pick. His primary champion -- besides our backup quarterback at the time, Aaron Rodgers, a former teammate at Cal -- was John Schneider, now the Seahawks' general manager. There was a palpable groan from Schneider when the Bills selected Lynch a few picks ahead of our selection. Now, Schneider has Lynch long term.
