RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Marshawn Lynch has every reason to talk.
The Seattle Seahawks running back is currently the No. 2 rusher in the NFL, trailing only Adrian Peterson. He's already set a new career high with 1,266 yards rushing through 13 games and needs just three more rushing touchdowns to match his career best of 12 from last season.
His past and present collide this week when the Seahawks travel to Toronto to face Lynch's former team, the Buffalo Bills.
With the Seahawks on the cusp of a playoff berth, it's apparent that the decision to acquire Lynch from Buffalo via trade early in the 2010 season is probably the most important player transaction coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider have made in rebuilding the Seahawks' roster.
