Lynch has apparently met with Carroll and Schneider and asked to be released. Sounds like he's got the itch to play again, looks in shape. If the Seahawks do agree to his unretirement (is that a word?) they are on the hook for $9m, and they only have $13m cap space, with Lacy already on board. This is happening folks.

So, a bit of help understanding the deal here??..

He's still under contract with the Seahawks...so why would they cut him without holding out for a trade with Oakland? If they release him, he becomes a UFA and they get nothing right??

Reggies' not gonna trade a pick surely...so , what am I missing here to make this work?

They'd have to cut him as they only have about $4-5m of cap space with both the 2nd wave of free agency and the draft to come. They could restructure existing contracts by converting basic salary into signing bonuses but that puts extra pressure on the cap in future years.

Thanks for that...wasn't quite understanding the cap issue.

Speaking of deals...been a busy day today. QB Manuel, LB Jenkins, and re-signing of LS Condo.
