Chan Gailey knows nothing about Marshawn Lynch's absence

Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch didn’t show up today at the start of the team’s voluntary workout program. Head coach Chan Gailey doesn’t know why.

I don’t know anything about that,” Gailey told the Buffalo News.

It’s unclear how well Lynch will fit in Gailey’s offense. Fred Jackson leapfrogged Lynch on the depth chart last season, and Gailey has talked about wanting to draft a “185-pound or 195-pound, quick-as-a-cat water bug.” The Bills may also have interest in drafting Clemson running back C.J. Spiller.

Regarding Lynch, Gailey said, “Our general manager, Buddy Nix, has talked to him but I have not talked to him.”

There’s not much the team can do about Lynch’s absence, but, Gailey says he wishes the whole team would attend voluntary workouts.

“You want everybody in the boat,” Gailey said. “That’s the bottom line in this business. If you get everybody together and headed in the same direction you give yourself a much better chance to win. Are there extenuating circumstances with a lot of people and a lot of situations out there? Sure there are. But if you get everybody together and headed in the same direction, you give yourself a much better chance to win.”

    these guys barely get a real offseason let them spend this time with their family

    I love the way this guy runs and his hands out of the backfield are very underrated.
    Here’s hoping he buckles down, works hard and stays out of trouble. Missing team activities is a bad idea. All his problems could be solved by just focusing on playing great football. He’s good enough to play in the NFL and be great.

    Chan Gailey knows nothing.
    fixed.
    I’d kill myself if I were a Buffalo Bills fan… Horrible team, Horrible uniforms, Horrible talent, Horrible fan base/stadium (why else do they play home games in Canada?) horrible head coach that will be fired in 3 horrible seasons.
    Seriously, I’d kill myself.

    are you kidding? Lynch is an awful receiver.

    You probably could have shortened this headline to “Chan Gailey knows nothing.”

    wherever he is trouble is just around the corner! i hope the bills take a Qback just not that nut that cant throw from florida! tebo i hope you go to new england. you deserve that!

    Here’s hoping this thug gets traded- he’s one strike away from a 1 year suspension. Buyer beware!

  9. wwwmattcom says: Mar 30, 2010 8:02 PM

    Lynch is good. Put some faith in him, tell him to go out there and have fun, make sure off the field he is happy and wow that guy would tear it up.

    I also know nothing about Marshawn Lynch’s absence.

    3 months off isn’t enough???

    Used to like marshawn and I’m still giving him the benefit of the doubt after his legal issues, but it keeps getting more difficult. The bills should cut their losses an d get rid of him for a 3rd pick while he still has value.

  13. ampats says: Mar 30, 2010 8:37 PM

    EG in response to Warren Moon Goat,
    3 months???
    The Bills have been off since the beginning of November.

    Boy it’s a real shame you’re not a Bills fan.

    First of all, feel free to attack the Buffalo Bills stadium, playing in Canada, their coach, owner, and everything else about them but those are not bad looking uniforms.

    Horrible fan base? Do you know anything about the Bills? They consistently sell out, year after year, regardless of the product on the field. The Bills have some one of the best fan bases in the league.

    whoever said the bills have a horrible fan base is a idiot! this team has sucked for ten years and the ralph sells out constantly! you could say we are gluttons for punishment, but not that the fan base sucks!

    Seriously, what about the chiefs offense 2007-2008 made the Bills want to hire this guy??

    MNFANINAZ – they play games in Toronto because its the 4th biggest city in North America. You are an absolute tool, and clearly know nothing about Buffalo or the Bills. Now get back to that threesome with Brad Childress and John McCain.

  23. madbillsfan says: Mar 30, 2010 11:02 PM

    Why kill myself when the Bills can do it for me.

  24. UBBALLER8 says: Mar 30, 2010 11:06 PM

    MNFANINAZZ – The Bills fanbase is one of the best in the NFL. Anyone with a brain, even a very small one, knows that. Not sure what that says about you.
    Lastly, you would kill yourself if you were to become a Bills fan? We all wish you would become a Bills fan then. You putting an end to yourself would easily make the world a better place.

    For some reason, I read that with Dave Chapelle’s white accent. Which actually made it (somewhat) funny.
    Also, what’s up with all this telling someone to end it? When did everyone at PFT turn into Santonio Holmes?

  26. BasicInstinct says: Mar 31, 2010 1:34 AM

    Chan Gailey is as dumb as a “red-eared slider”.
    But so are a lot of people.
    Don’t be surprised if the Bills win a lot of games this year.
    Although not with a football team, dumb and lucky has worked out just fine with the Phillies lately….
    When working with dumb players, dumb works.
    Remember Yogi?

    The All Seeing, All Knowing MNFANINAZZ :
    Pay him no mind … just another lard ass vikings fan.
    6 fumbles, 2 interceptions, 12 dudes in the huddle after a timeout, crooked politicians that make laws to protect viking players, the whizzinator, the love boat …
    purple helmets with turkey drumsticks on the side …
    knocking other teams is the absolute only thing that keeps him from thinking about his own misery …
    you can’t polish a turd

    Marshawnn “Inch” is a BUM! “Look at him run into that pile and keep his legs moving for an extra inch”! LOL! He sucks!

  29. slutnuts says: Mar 31, 2010 10:25 AM

    how much of an off season do you get warrenmoonGOAT? and i bet you get paid considerably less than these players too. not only that but they only “work” for 15-20 years at the most before its freedom 35 time. no sympathy here.
    why bother with the tag “voluntary” you know full well you had better be at these workouts.
