Marshawn Lynch Gives Seahawks Cal Running Tandem

What's the common thread in the Seahawks backfield now that Marshawn Lynch is on-board? The California Golden Bears, of course. Both Justin Forsett and Lynch are Cal alums, sharing the load while playing for the Golden Bears.

ESPN's Adam Schefter noted that the two are still close friends.

Marshawn Lynch was a groomsman in Justin Forsett's wedding last summer. Two were teammates at Cal, now teammates in Seattle.less than a minute ago via web

With off-field issues still dogging Lynch, having a close-friend nearby to keep him out of trouble only helps the Seahawks situation. In Seattle, Lynch gets a fresh start after leaving a bad situation in Buffalo.
