TORONTO - In 2010, Pete Carroll badly wanted Marshawn Lynch to be the linchpin of the run-based offence he was bringing to the Seattle Seahawks.

Problem was, Lynch played for the Buffalo Bills at the time.

Carroll had bolted Southern Cal in January that year to take over as head coach of the Seahawks.
