Every weekday morning, we'll round up local and national Seattle Seahawks-related links.
Marshawn Lynch's trip to Egypt continued over the weekend with some coaching and some dancing. Lynch is there as part of the American Football Without Barriers program.

As for where Irvin lands, two teams have been mentioned as favorites for months -- Atlanta and Jacksonville. Each is coached by a former Seahawks defensive coordinator who has worked with Irvin -- Gus Bradley in Jacksonville and Dan Quinn in Atlanta. Each also has a need for pass rushers. And the Jags have almost more cap space than they know what to do with (an estimated $80 million as of Sunday).
Irvin is also from Atlanta and has indicated in the past he’d like to play there. Given the Jags’ cap situation, though, it’s been thought that if Jacksonville decides it really wants Irvin then that’s where he will probably end up.
"First you have to see where he is physically," Clayton said. "You'd like to try to get a younger back, but he's a back that may work out. You compare him right now to see if you like him better than Fred Jackson and so he would be a candidate. Because he's been cut, he doesn't go against your compensatory [pick] pool, so that's encouraging. So he would be an option."
