NFL.com's Jason La Canfora reports the Seattle Seahawks are "very interested" in Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch.

La Canfora, citing unnamed league sources, blogs the Bills could have taken "at least a fourth-round pick for Lynch at the draft" but declined and that the Seahawks are willing to part with a similar asset for Lynch. La Canfora also reports the Seahawks were interested in Lynch before they released LenDale White.

Of course, a fourth-round pick in April is worth more than a fourth-round pick in 2011. The Bills would be without the player for a season.

Lynch has been a headache for Buffalo. In addition to his off-field issues under former coach Dick Jauron, he has been making statements by showing up to the Bills' facility but not taking part in voluntary workouts.

It's pretty clear he would like to be traded, but new head coach Chan Gailey and general manager Buddy Nix have insisted they would like Lynch to remain a part of the team.

Lynch, a 1,000-yard rusher in each of this first two NFL seasons and a Pro Bowler for 2008, lost his job as Buffalo's feature back to Fred Jackson last year. The Bills drafted Clemson running back C.J. Spiller ninth overall.
