Marshawn Lynch trade talks heating up

We've known for roughly a week now that Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch reportedly wants out of town. According to a couple of reports - one that names names, and one that doesn't - the third-year running back may be getting his wish sooner rather than later.

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports via Twitter that a Pro Bowl running back is on the trade block, but will not yet disclose the name of the player nor the two teams involved in trade talks. He does, however, mention that the two teams are not in the same division.

A BuffaloSportsDaily.com report takes things a step further. Citing a "reliable source," the report indicates that a trade involving Lynch is now "inevitable," and that there is more than one team in contention for the former Cal star's services. This report also indicates that the Bills are seeking player compensation, as opposed to draft pick compensation.

Lynch is coming off his worst season as a professional - one in which he served a three-game suspension and rushed for just 450 yards while losing his starting job to Fred Jackson. He did not report to the team's voluntary workouts in late March.
