Lynch responds to trade rumors

There have been numerous reports this week about Bills running back Marshawn Lynch being traded. One story from Yahoo Sports said the Green Bay were interested and that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was lobbying the team on Lynch's behalf. The two were teammates at Cal.

I asked Lynch if he was affected by the trade rumors.

“No, because if it’s going to happen then it’s going to happen,” he said. ”What will I be able to do about it? If they say I’ve got to go then what am I going to do, tell them no? If they say I’m going to stay, I’m here. If they say I’m not going nowhere then come on, let’s continue to build on this thing and let's get better.”

It's no secret Lynch was unhappy about losing his starting job to Fred Jackson last season and wasn't too thrilled about the Bills drafting C.J. Spiller. But to Lynch's credit, he has not made an issue about it other than staying away from most of the offseason workouts. 

The Bills have maintained they do not intend to trade Lynch, who seems OK with that.

"As of right now, I know I'm taking handoffs from Fitz (Ryan Fitzpatrick), Trent [Edwards] or [Brian] Brohm,'' Lynch said. "That's pretty much all I've got to say about that.''
