According to an incident report released by the California Highway Patrol, Lynch was seen driving a Econoline van and nearly collided with two other vehicles, all while weaving in and out of lanes.
Where does this leave the Seattle Seahawks in 2012?
We wrote yesterday that Marshawn Lynch DUI arrest is a bad deal for Seahawks.
Is the pressure squarely on Robert Turbin now?
Most believe Lynch WILL certainly be suspended now by the NFL's iron fist Roger Goodell.
Seahawks fans. If you thought you were going to make the playoffs before with Lynch how do you feel now?
Lynch is a critical part of this team. To think the Seahawks will be the same team without him are living in a dreamworld.
His loss is HUGE. We'd better hope he's only out 1-3 games not the 4-6 game variety.
Rumors have the Seahawks possibly looking to grab the services of the Cedric Benson & or Ryan Grant via Free Agency.
Leon Washington, Kregg Lumpkin, Tyrell Sutton, Robert Turbin the pressure could be VERY squarely on your shoulders.
Lynch is the face of the franchise, he's the heart and soul of the offense. He will not be easily replaced.
