Marshawn Lynch to host Bay Area charity weekend
Last year, the three-headed monster of Ingram, Thomas and Ivory combined for just 301 carries. Expecting the Saints to suddenly use Ingram in his natural pounding role requires a leap of faith. Anything more than 160 carries for either Thomas or Ingram would be a surprise. Broncos dump MLB Joe Mays, save $3.5 million Broncos released MLB Joe Mays. Mays lost his starting job to current free agent Keith Brooking last year and wasn’t going to beat out Nate Irving this year. By cutting the former Eagle one year into his three-year, $12 million contract, the Broncos save $3.5 million against the cap right away. Perhaps they’ll use that cash to help fill the void left by Von Miller’s impending four-game suspension.
The truth about Lynch and Skittles
Marshawn Lynch. (AP Photo) Lynch, 27, was arrested July 14, 2012, near his hometown of Oakland, Calif., under suspicion of driving under the influence. He was subsequently charged , but the case was delayed until after the 2012 football season. This year, the case has progressed slowly, with the defense asking to suppress evidence and dismiss the case. The suppression hearing was continued late from May until Friday, and now has been continued to November. Lynch, who pleaded not guilty, could face an NFL suspension whether hes found guilty or not. About 3:20 a.m. July 14, 2012, Lynch was pulled over after he was seen weaving between lanes on Interstate 880 near Oakland, according to an incident report from the California Highway Patrol. His Ford Econoline van nearly collided with two other vehicles on the highway, the police report stated.
Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch’s DUI case continues with no resolution yet
“He was the highest-rated player on our board and we lost Leon Washington , so we were looking for a little bit of depth there, and he is just our kind of runner,” Schneider said. “He’s a tough, intense, up-field, one-cut guy, and he’s just a very good football player, competitor.” Adding Michael does not imperil Lynch for the 2013 season, of course. It does provoke natural tendencies to wonder whether there’s more to this story. “I could be far-fetched here,” Kevin from McKinney, Texas, wrote to the NFC West mailbag, illustrating how far the mind can wander, “but is it possible John Schneider and [coach] Pete Carroll are concerned with Lynch’s future effectiveness due to the new lowering of the crown rule? It seems to me that is a big part of his game and significantly contributes to his yards after contact.” There is no way the rulebook pressured Seattle into drafting a running back. Carroll and other coaches fear officials will struggle enforcing the new rule preventing runners from lowering their heads and delivering an aggressive blow to the opponent with the top of the helmet.

Marshawn Lynch and the bigger RB picture
I even contacted Skittles to see if they would donate some for the camp, she said. I told them we have a non-profit organization and we do a camp. I wrote them personally, but I have yet to hear back from them. Its been over a year, but Im not going to worry about that because he still likes Skittles. Lynch had about 600 kids at his camp on Saturday at Oakland Tech High, where he went to high school. Lynch, who rarely talks to reporters, did talk about his camp at the end of a long day on Saturday. Its just important to show them a different side of it, and that we feel for them as well, he said. They go through so much during the year, so this is an opportunity to just let them hang loose, and just be kids like theyre supposed to. Most of them, unless Im running up into their high school, most of them only see me on TV, so its just another opportunity.
