If running back Marshawn Lynch fails to report for next week’s mandatory minicamp, it will be news to the Seahawks.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Lynch has said nothing to indicate he won’t be there.
Then again, Lynch never says much. In this specific case, we’ve consistently heard that no one knows (perhaps not even Lynch himself) whether he’ll attend.
“He always does whatever he wants,” the source said. “He’s always been like that. He hasn’t threatened to not come to the camp though.”
And he won’t, even if he doesn’t intend to show.
Ultimately, the question is whether Lynch wants a new contract. All parties are more quiet than Marshawn at Media Day on that specific topic, which of course means that Lynch indeed wants a new contract — regardless of whether he shows up for the mandatory minicamp.
