Bills RB Marshawn Lynch participated in practice today for the first team this offseason, and after he was asked what had taken him so long to pull on a uniform, he told reporters he was having too delightful of a time not wearing pads. It’s not that Lynch – who might not be any higher than third on Buffalo’s depth chart behind Fred Jackson and first-round pick C.J. Spiller – wants to be traded. Nope, he was just chilling out.
"I was just enjoying, what they call it, the offseason,” said Lynch, who finally met with new coach Chan Gailey on Monday for the first time. “Kicked back at home, but still getting in the necessary work for me to come back and be able to produce.''
I guess, we’ll see about that last part. If Lynch even makes the 53-man roster, he might have a tough time convincing the coaches he should have the chance to produce.
