Marshawn Lynch ends his holdout, reports to Seahawks

AP

Reports on Thursday afternoon indicated that running back Marshawn Lynch was set to make his delayed arrival to Seahawks camp in the next 24 hours, but the team didn’t have to wait that long for Lynch’s return.

Lynch arrived at the Seahawks’ facility a bit later on Thursday, a moment broadcast on NFL Network and shared on Twitter by Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. Curtis Crabtree of PFT is at the team headquarters and passes along word that Lynch’s arrival at the building was met by loud cheering from an auditorium and that a Brinks truck pulled up to the facility a few minutes later.

If the earlier report from ESPN about Lynch not getting a new deal is correct, the truck is just a humorous coincidence. There are reportedly some “financial concessions” coming Lynch’s way, which could be the forgiveness of the fines that Lynch accumulated while staying away from the team.

Either way, Lynch is back now and should resume his place as a centerpiece of the team’s offensive attack. With a salary that could reach $7.5 million due next season, it will be interesting to see if this is Lynch’s final year in Seattle as the Seahawks will need to keep some money free for possible extensions for quarterback Russell Wilson and other younger players finishing up their rookie deals.

  1. Pleasure to have you back BeastMode. You’re easily better than Adrian Peterson and you are one of the best running backs in the history of the game. It’s no secret that the Seahawks are the best professional team on Earth. Every morning before I brush my teeth I watch your epic run against the Saints. I can see my beloved Seahawks winning 7 more Super Bowls and Lord Russell Wilson finishing with 8 total rings. We then will make a statue of him in Pikes Place holding a Chocolate Venti, sugar-free, non-fat, vanilla soy, double shot, Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha.

  2. they’ll need him– The league is cracking down on defensive holding, so they either have to scrap their defensive playbook (based on holding and pass interference plays) or run the clock down as fast as possible in games.

  3. “…the league is cracking down…”

    They’re cracking down on everyone, genius. Can’t wait for the sub par corners on your team to grab someone and you cry about it because it costs you the game. Fool.

  4. Hi fellow 12s. I am going to be parking my teal and blue 2004 Ford Windstar van outside of Century Link field and begin camping out until the season starts. If anyone would like to join me feel free, as we can converse about how special Russell Wilson is, or how elite Richard Sherman even though he covers #2&#3 receivers. Lets show America how loud we are and that we mean business.

  5. Make him pay his fines! Otherwise you’re just inviting other players to take training camp vacations too.

  6. Beast mode should kiss the ground he walks on in Seattle, after his problems in Buffalo.

    That. Is. Gold. Logicalvoice, Ariani, Poet, etc., you all better be taking notes…THIS is how you troll at an all-pro level. This guy is my new favorite character.

    Bravo, Mr. 12Godsteam. Bra-vo.

  8. I am glad to hear this news. Its time to roll up the sleeves and get to work. I get to see my Hawks here in DC and down the road in Philly this year. You will see me on TV because I am bringing Sea-Fence props.

  9. 49er fans bragging about 5 rings is about as relevant to me as Browns fans bragging about their championships in the 1940’s. It’s unlikely that you were even around to see it. I wasn’t so why would I care? I get to watch Superbowls right now. I was drinking Moet a few months ago. When was the last time Whiner fans cracked a bottle? LOL

    Singletary > Harbaugh
    Alex Smith > Kaepernick

    The 49ers are a team even the Cowgirls laugh at.

  10. Actually, he received $1 million dollars in what were previously performance bonuses, and got his salary bumped for this year by an additional $500k.

    In terms the haters in this thread can understand, that’s more than what you’d make working fifty years at Taco Bell, even if you got promoted to assistant manager.

  11. “They’re cracking down on everyone, genius.” — Did I say just the seahawks? #readincomprehensionisvaluable

  12. I really wish teams would stop giving passes on the fines.

    There is a reason the new CBA has a higher fine structure. And yet, every time a star player holds out, teams pander to them, and waive the fines. Ridiculous

  13. From a Niners fan, he deserves it. In a time when RB’s are de-valued like never before, he’s still the main cog in that offense. It’ll be a shame when he and Frank Gore are gone from the game.

    Keep thinking that to make yourself feel more superior. Then again, the new “deliveries” have just arrived.
