Marshawn Lynch may skip Seahawks
According to a Kelvin Sheppard Jersey report Wednesday night, the Seahawks don't anticipate Marshawn Lynch will attend all of next week's minicamp. According to ESPN's Terry Blount, Lynch is looking for a new contract. "It's very, very unlikely that Lynch will be there,'' a source told Blount Wednesday. "He wants the Seahawks to renegotiate his current contract and provide him with more up front money."]
Lynch, 28, will be entering the third year of a four year contract he Hakeem Nicks Authentic Jersey signed with the team in March 2012, earning a base salary of $5 million and bonuses that could bring the total to $7 million. In 2015, he's set to earn $5.5 million in base salary and up Hakeem Nicks Colts Jersey to $3.5 million in additional roster bonuses for a $9 million hit against the salary cap, leading some to believe he would need to restructure his deal in order to remain with the team past this coming season.
According to the most recent collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and the players' union, "Beast Mode" could be fined up to $69,455 if he misses all three days of next week's minicamp.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll wouldn't address the specifics of Lynch's absence after the Hawks' first OTA session but has been effusive in his praise of the reserve running backs during the voluntary sessions, particularly second year pro Christine Michael, the team's top draft pick in 2013.
Lynch has run for 4,624 yards and 41 touchdowns in www.coltsonlineprostore.com/WOMENS-ARTHUR-JONES-JERSEY.html nearly four seasons with the Hawks after he was acquired via trade with the Buffalo Bills four games into the 2010 season. After a 2012 campaign in which he set a career high with over 1,500 rushing yards, Lynch didn't fare as well in 2013, totaling just 1,257 yards while running behind a patchwork offensive line for much of the year. He still exhibited his nose for the end zone, however, scoring Kelvin Sheppard Elite Jersey a league leading 12 rushing touchdowns.
Lynch is responsible for some of the most memorable plays of recent Seahawks history, including his 67 yard "Beast Quake" touchdown coltsonlineprostore.com/WOMENS-LARON-LANDRY-JERSEY.html run against theNew Orleans Saints in a wild card playoff game in 2011 that caused enough crowd noise at CenturyLink Field to register seismic activity nearby.
He is known equally for his physical running style and his aversion to the spotlight, incurring a $50,000 fine from the NFL for failing to speak with the press in designated sessions throughout the 2013 season. The fine was later rescinded after Lynch agreed to meet all media requirements through the team's Super Bowl run.
