CHAWK LINES -- Week in review

What else is new? Marshawn Lynch dominated the news this week.

First, he talked to Turkish TV about the last play of the Super Bowl, which prompted Warren Moon to say Lynch’s MVP comments stemmed from the fact that he “just doesn’t trust a lot of people.”

Robert Turbin said he didn’t buy into the conspiracy talk surrounding the final play.

Then, on Friday, Lynch signed an extension with the Hawks, who also released Zach Miller and tendered restricted free agent Jermaine Kearse at the second-round level.

Lynch’s agent, Doug Hendrickson, talked about how the deal came together and answered other questions about his client.

Owner Paul Allen, who is No. 51 on Forbes’ list of richest people (and the NFL’s ongoing richest owner), returned to Seattle to meet with Lynch. Allen had been in the South Pacific overseeing the salvage of a World War II Japanese battleship.

Richard Sherman told the NBA to bring back the Sonics.

Sidney Rice, who said he had at least 10 concussions playing football, is going to donate his brain to science (after he is dead, we presume). Rice retired at age 27 last year.

In free agency news, the Seahawks hosted cornerback Cary Williams and also checked into some other released players.

In draft musings, Rob Staton looked at the Seahawks’ philosophy regarding cornerbacks and how it pertains to this draft.
