Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said running back Marshawn Lynch, who missed the first part of camp in a contract holdout, "needs a lot of work" to return to form. "He's coming along," Carroll said.
Lynch ended his holdout last Thursday, but has been rusty after missing the early portion of training camp. The Seahawks are planning on incorporating Christian Michael into the team's offensive scheme more in 2014 which is going to factor into Lynch's touches and his recent holdout certainly didn't help his case. Despite the negatives, Lynch is still a top top 10 running back heading into 2014 as long as he makes it out of camp healthy.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Bills are expected to release Mario Williams.
It was obvious that he was not fitting into the defensive scheme being employed by Rex Ryan and his staff. At 31 years of age, he still should have some skills left to devote to another team that will utilize his pass rush and tackling abilities. Look for him to catch on with another team if Buffalo decides to cut him loose. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
DeMarcus Ware said that he intends to continue playing.
Ware has been quoted as saying that "he's got a lot of gas left in the tank," so this announcement comes as no huge shock. Playing opposite Von Miller help to revitalize his game, as he snagged 7.5 sacks in 11 regular season games and 3.5 in three post season games, with two of those coming in the Super Bowl last Sunday.
