NFL Free Agency: Seahawks Red Bryant, Marshawn Lynch Among Top Targets

The Seattle Seahawks probably don't have to worry too much when it comes to figuring out who to re-sign this offseason. The number of big money players they would want to lock up is relatively low. That doesn't mean the Seahawks don't have players they would be sad to lose. Pete Prisco of CBS Sports rated the top 50 free agents in the NFL, and the Seahawks have two on the list. Both are fairly important.

10. Red Bryant, DT, Seattle Seahawks: He had eight starts in his first three seasons, but started 16 in 2011 and was a force on the Seattle defense. He is a perfect 3-4 end, which is where he played last season. He is this year's Ray McDonald. He turns 28 in April.

42. Marshawn Lynch, RB, Seattle Seahawks: He has rejuvenated his career in Seattle after being a disappointment in Buffalo in his last two seasons. He ran for 1,204 yards last season for the Seahawks and he only turns 26 in March.

First of all, Marshawn at 42? Say what now?

The Seahawks are probably going to take a hard look at keeping both of them, particularly considering how well they played last season. Because they don't have anyone else they really need to commit max money to, the resources should be there to keep them on the team.
