Marshawn Lynch Expected to Report to Camp in 24 Hours



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.


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.
