New #Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch passed a physical, signed a deal, and is in position to play this week in a huge game on Sunday night. That should spice it up a bit.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 24, 2019

New/old Seahawks’ RB Marshawn Lynch signed a deal for this year only - the last regular-season game and the postseason, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 24, 2019
Lynch previously played with the Oakland Raiders. "He's been working really hard," Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said while on 710 ESPN Seattle. "He's really excited about the chance to do something helping out, and I think it's freakin' great if he could get out there and tote the ball for us. The circumstances rolled just at this time, and he could have four or five games left in him. Maybe that's what we need."
Lynch wasn't the only person to sign a deal with his former team. Robert Turbin and the Seahawks also reached a deal. The signing of the two running backs comes on the heels of Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise sustaining injuries.
