That holdout didn’t last long. Marshawn Lynch is expected to end his holdout and report to Seattle training camp in the next 24 hours:

This is the best move for Lynch who did not have the leverage that Jamaal Charles had in Kansas City. It has to be a bit humbling though to come back to camp without a new deal after holding out.

Now he’s bout that camp boss.

*Update*

It looks like Lynch got a bump in pay for this season per PFT:

Under Lynch’s previous contract, he was due to make a $5 million base salary this year, plus $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses, and he could have earned another $500,000 in incentives if he had rushed for 1,500 yards. Now Lynch gets a base salary of $6 million (meaning the Seahawks effectively guaranteed the $1 million he previously would have had to earn), plus they’re taking $500,000 that he had been scheduled to get paid in 2015 and giving it to him now instead. In all, Lynch will make $6.5 million this year.
