If Marshawn Lynch is Suspended for DUI Could Lose $17 Million

Losing $17 million or calling a cab?

An NFL executive tells ESPN’s Ross Tucker a suspension for conduct detrimental or substance abuse defaults Marshawn Lynch’s four-year, $31 million contract and voids guaranteed money. If true, it was a prudent move by Seattle, realizing the suspension risk inherent in locking up a player who had already run afoul of the league’s personal conduct policy. The contract Lynch signed in March contains $17 million in guarantees.
