Losing $17 million or calling a cab?

It seems like a no brainer, but it wasn’t for Marshawn Lynch and that decision might cost him big time.

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.
