Marshawn Lynch talks about that one time Russell Wilson dissed him
Speaking of "Undisputed," former Bayless co-host Shannon Sharpe (who must have just gotten tired of Bayless' non-sensical ramblings and likely begged to leave the show) has a new post called "Club Shay Shay." Marshawn Lynch was recently on with Sharpe speaking about many things, but Lynch was asked about his relationship with Seattle head coach Pete Carroll and former Seattle QB Russell Wilson.
At first, Lynch basically said he didn't have much to say about the dynamic between Carroll and Wilson and what might have led to Wilson wanting to be traded from the Seahawks, but then Lynch did speak specifically about his relationship with Russell Wilson. Basically, there wasn't one.
Lynch, of course, was the focus of the offensive scheme during Wilson's early years. While the Legion of Boom was dominating defensively, Seattle's offense was scoring points with the rugged running of Lynch and the efficient passing of Wilson. Wilson more supported Lynch in the design than the other way around.
But during Wilson and Lynch's time together in Seattle, Pete Carroll told the players if they have an issue with Wilson then instead of speaking with the quarterback directly, the players should speak with Carroll first.
Lynch also said that Russell Wilson blocked his number from other players. Once Lynch wanted to call Wilson and Lynch went to a player personnel staff member who said Wilson would call Lynch first. The member then asked Lynch if Wilson had called and Lynch said Wilson had not but that Lynch had gotten a call from a blocked number. The staff member then told Lynch that that would have been Wilson.
