The wide receiver says he will play for Seattle in 2014, either under his tender in place or under a contract extension.

Appearing on a Seattle Radio station Thursday morning. Baldwin said that he had not signed the second round tender that the team had placed on him as a restricted free agent after Super Bowl XLVIII. The 4th-year wide out from Stanford said that he and the Seahawks have been negotiating on a contract extension, but couldn’t say when that could happen.

Baldwin related that he will not hold out, and will either sign his tender before the off season is over or come to terms for a contract extension with the team. Baldwin confirmed that the Seahawks made him an offer, and he made a counter offer.

In other Seahawks news, running back Marshawn Lynch’s absence from Wednesday’s White House event honoring the team was explained by his mother.

“No particular reason was given to me,’’ Delisa Lynch told The Seattle Times.  “He just said he didn’t want to go.’’

Lynch has been reportedly mourning the death of a family member, but it’s unknown how much that played into his decision not to travel to Washington with his teammates.
