Seattle’s starting running back is expected to miss next week’s mandatory mini camp, something the Seahawks expected. Could it be Marshawn Lynch wants a contract extension?

 

ESPN’s Terry Blount wrote last night:

“It’s very, very unlikely that Lynch will be there,” said a source close to the situation. “He wants the Seahawks to renegotiate his current contract and provide him with more up-front money.”

 

Lynch could not be reached for comment Wednesday evening. Thursday is the final day of organized team activities for Seattle, voluntary workouts that Lynch has not attended over the last three weeks.

 

Lynch, 28, is starting the third year of a four-year deal that is worth $30 million, including $6 million in signing bonus. His base salary this season is $5 million and counts $7 million against the salary cap. The final year of the deal in 2015 would cost $9 million against the cap and pay Lynch $5.5 million in base salary.

 

 

Lynch has missed workouts like this in the past, but the team hasn’t made too much of it, stating that they know what he can do, and that they want to keep him fresh for the regular season

In Lynch’s absence, running backs Robert Turbin and Christine Michael have received most of the work in the off season workouts.

The Seahawks haven’t  made any  comments on the situation.
