Bills Trade RB Lynch To Seahawks For Two Draft Picks

Jay Glazer of is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have traded running back Marshawn Lynch to the Seattle Seahawks. In exchange for Lynch, Seattle will send a fourth-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, and a conditional sixth-round pick in the 2012 draft that can become a fifth-round pick (Adam Schefter).

Seattle was reportedly interested in making a deal for Lynch back during April's draft, but at the time, the Bills were not interested in dealing Lynch. The Seahawks, however, have continued to try to pry Lynch away from the team since the preseason, according to Adam Caplan.

Lynch had also been linked via trade to Green Bay and Philadelphia in recent weeks. The team's first-round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, Lynch finishes his Bills career with 2,765 rushing yards, 670 receiving yards, and 18 total touchdowns.

Once the trade becomes official, Buffalo will be down to veteran Fred Jackson and rookie C.J. Spiller in their backfield.
