Marshawn Lynch in attendance at Seahawks OTAs

When Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was asked about running back Marshawn Lynch’s absence from OTAs last week, he said that the Seahawks “miss him and we’d like him to be here.”

The Seahawks don’t have to miss Lynch any longer. The team tweeted out a picture from Tuesday’s workout to highlight socks featuring the Seattle skyline worn by wide receiver Doug Baldwin, but the photo also featured a shot of Lynch, who had been the only healthy Seahawk not taking part in OTAs, heading toward the field with his teammate.

There never was much concern that Lynch was going to miss any mandatory work this year and there was no sign that Carroll’s desire to have Lynch at the facility came with any rancor about his absence. Carroll said Lynch was engaged in a “very intense” workout program while Robert Turbin and Christine Michael took care of the reps with the offense in Seattle.

Lynch should be taking over the lion’s share of those reps now that he’s back with the rest of the gang and the Seahawks are free to continue the rest of their offseason work with all hands on deck.

    Seahawks don’t have to worry about Lynch too much. He is going to show up and play every game. Least of their worries.

    He must be clear of the PEDs now.

    Yay, another opportunity for completely rational people to make smart comments about PED’s.

    Actually it’s pretty impressive that he’s there. They are voluntary workouts. He has terrible back spasms that the OTAs aggravate. He doesn’t practice much during the year because of the back and yet produces every Sunday in an amazing fashion. He was already taking care of his physical conditioning elsewhere.

    But when it’s all said and done, he did it for team unity. He’s a good man.

    The dude had what…like 350 carries last yr?

    I think they’d be smart to give him a little extra rest. Beast Mode deserves it!

    Well yeah he was there. The Seahawks were afraid he’d get arrested, again, if he weren’t there. BTW Hawk fan, whose the PED tool this week?

    Stay healthy Lynch, Niners have a new wall piece they wanna introduce you to. If you don’t stay healthy I’m thinking Michele Christine will take your job!
