CHAWK LINES -- Week in review

The Seahawks reportedly have offered Marshawn Lynch about $21 million over the next two seasons. Does he want to play though?

John Schneider and Pete Carroll both spoke at the Combine, about Lynch, the Super Bowl and the future.

Schneider revealed that Jeremy Lane suffered a torn ACL on the same interception play on which he also broke his wrist in the Super Bowl.

Among many topics, Carroll said they were working on hiring some assistant coaches at the Combine.

Speaking of Lynch, he had a good message for a crowd at an underground concert in Oakland on Thursday.

Russell Wilson also did some talking this week, taking the blame for the goal-line interception in the Super Bowl but reminding everyone that he is moving forward and thinking ahead, as always.

As usual, Jason La Canfora is full of pomp and bull in this opinion that the Hawks won’t pay Wilson this offseason. Of course they will. And it makes no sense to franchise him in 2016.

We previously put forth our idea of what an “outside the box” deal for Wilson could mean …

$75m guaranteed

And a couple of salary cap guys basically said the same thing to Bob Condotta …

$75m-$80m guaranteed

Rob Staton has been all over the Combine. On Saturday, he nailed it with the thought that the Hawks will go O-line and receiver with their first two picks, possibly trading out of 31 and even up from 63 to get the guys they want.

Free agency rumors: The New York Jets will be hot after guard James Carpenter, and cornerback Byron Maxwell figures to be chased by Philadelphia (and Atlanta).

On the flip side, everyone was talking about the idea of Denver tight end Julius Thomas coming to Seattle. Is he worth it though?

Doug Baldwin finally wised up and realized his Super Bowl “turddown” was stupid.

Brian Nemhauser shows a number of plays in the Super Bowl in which Doug Baldwin was a viable option, which basically shows that Russell Wilson’s height is definitely a factor at times, especially with smaller receivers going across the middle.

Former Hawk Ben Obomanu talked about the moronic conspiracy theory that Carroll wanted Wilson to be the MVP of the Super Bowl — and how some players are worried that final play might cause Lynch to retire.

Keith Myers of 12th Man Rising brings up the dreaded specter of the Hawks bouncing back to the AFC West if L.A. gets both the Chargers and Raiders. We then suggested Paul Allen should ransom his spot in the NFC West.
