The Seahawks and a running back were expected to reunite on Monday, and it appears to have happened. No, not that one.
Per NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Seattle is expected to sign Robert Turbin, six days after initially hosting their former fourth-round selection on a visit:

As Garafolo explains, Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks are still working through the steps of a reunion, one which does seem inevitable. But as of now, Turbin is the former Seattle tailback who has been reunited with his former club. Turbin was one of a handful of players to be worked out by the club on Monday:

Over three years with the Seahawks, Turbin totaled 928 yards on the ground and 427 yards receiving. His only two touchdowns for the team came through the air, as well. Turbin’s last NFL game came over 14 months ago, in a 42-34 loss to the Jets when he was a member of the Colts.
Barring anything unexpected, Lynch should soon join Turbin and Travis Homer in Seattle’s backfield, as both Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise will be placed on injured reserve to open up roster spots. But for the time being, just Turbin has returned.
