Marshawn Lynch agrees to three-year, $31 million deal

Marshawn Lynch AP

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has agreed to terms on a new contract that covers the next three years.  And he’ll be paid at the high end of the running back market.

Per a source with knowledge of the terms, Lynch gets $12 million this year, in the form $7.5 million signing bonus and a $4.5 million fully-guaranteed base salary.

In 2016, Lynch (if he plays) will get a base salary of $9 million.  In 2017 (if he plays), it’s a base salary of $7 million in 2017 along with a $3 million roster bonus due on the fifth day of the 2017 league year.

If Lynch retires after 2015, he’d be responsible in theory for paying back $5 million of the signing bonus.  But the Seahawks wouldn’t be required to pursue the money.  If they know going in that he may walk after 2015 (and that probably was one of the subjects discussed at Friday’s sit-down regarding the contract), it would be a surprise if they seek repayment of the money.

Lynch was scheduled to make $7 million in 2015, the final year of a four-year contract.  So, basically, he got another $5 million to return for one more year.

    Well deserved.

    That is a lot for a running back

  3. tommythehaus says: Mar 6, 2015 6:51 PM

    He’s REALLY good, but he’s not seeing the third year of that contract, not a chance…

  4. revren10 says: Mar 6, 2015 6:51 PM

    Now lets get him in the clinic and on that chemical training regiment since we haven’t won a title without positive PED test

    BEASTMODE BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. seahawksbmx says: Mar 6, 2015 6:51 PM

    Wow. I know there’s no guarantee he’ll be here all 3 years, but along with most, that third year caught me completely off guard. Sweet Mode.

  7. ariani1985 says: Mar 6, 2015 6:51 PM

    Lol, is he going to play from the old forks home?

    Town Business! In the house. Congrats Marshawn. You deserve it. Now give him the ball! Oaklandish For Life Elston

    Told you.

  12. superbowl49champions says: Mar 6, 2015 6:53 PM

    He deserves it! Compensating for not letting him be Superbowl XLIX MVP, and just for been a beast on the field, and off the field.

  13. floratiotime says: Mar 6, 2015 6:54 PM

    What a surprise … now that he’s sucked all the publicity out of it he signs … what an attention wh—

  14. rosstuckershair says: Mar 6, 2015 6:55 PM

    Congrats Beast…10.3 or so per year, Shady at 10.5…Looks like Peterson at 12.75 is not too far out of line….

  15. PFTcensorsRULE says: Mar 6, 2015 6:56 PM

    I’d almost like to see them lose SB 50 in similar fashion than see my own team get there.

  16. elevandoo says: Mar 6, 2015 6:56 PM

    Gotta say beastmode is worth it. Wonder what Demarco gets… he’s gonna want at least 8-10mil.

  17. slugbaitspace says: Mar 6, 2015 6:57 PM

    Sounds like “respect money”. Good for him! Bad for the rest of the NFCW…

    Yeah!!!!!

  24. conormacleod says: Mar 6, 2015 7:01 PM

    Never thought he’d walk away. That dude only cares about money.

  25. sellout1983 says: Mar 6, 2015 7:02 PM

    It’s a 1 year deal, $1 million in base salary, $1 million as a roster bonus, and $9 million for a signing bonus.

  26. abninf says: Mar 6, 2015 7:03 PM

    Overrated. Demarco would embarrass him.

  27. wrathofrathman says: Mar 6, 2015 7:03 PM

    So if they don’t pursue it does it still count against the cap?

    He isn’t worth that much money.

  35. nextmanisme says: Mar 6, 2015 7:09 PM

    They did this because dockets situation they knew if marshawn would leave or ask to opt out It would be to the cards and Seahawks would be in the same boat as us only difference is we can maintain without docket seahaks running game would of suxed without lynch

  36. ctiggs says: Mar 6, 2015 7:10 PM

    BUST!!

  37. bassplucker says: Mar 6, 2015 7:11 PM

    Hope the Hawks have insurance on his knees. Without him they are going to struggle… He deserves every penny because he is the franchise….the defense needs him!

  40. praetorian12 says: Mar 6, 2015 7:13 PM

    A class signing of a great player by a class organization.

  43. jm91rs says: Mar 6, 2015 7:15 PM

    There’s no way he was going to retire and leave $7 M on the table. He bluffed and Seattle fell for it. Now they are paying an extra $5M, obviously they are gonna pay Wilson, but the team is going to start losing it’s defensive stars very quickly.

I know the team you root for has been destroyed by the Hawks at one point or another, but get over it already. Pretty comical they are in your head enough to warrant a comment on EVERY article written about them though.

    That is a lot for a running back

    __________

    How’s trent Richardson soon for your team? I would rather spend the money on a proven back than waste a first round pick on a bum like the colts. There’s a reason why we got the the super bowl 2 years in a row while the colts sat at home and watched.

  49. picksixx says: Mar 6, 2015 7:19 PM

    Great deal for both sides

  51. chawk12thman says: Mar 6, 2015 7:27 PM

    Great move by the Hawks to lock him up for the next three years….Even if he only plays next season, he would not be able to play for a competitor. Based on the deal, it looks like for the next two years he will be playing for the Hawks…..It also looks like the team will know if he will be back in year three as they have the leverage worked into the contract…..

    Love the terms and look forward to seeing him on the field next season….and beyond…..

    Go Hawks!

  52. sadviking says: Mar 6, 2015 7:28 PM

    People talk about running backs not being worth that kind of money. However, just look at where these teams, Seattle and Minnesota, would be without them. for a long time, Peterson WAS the Vikings offense – no qb, poor line, no receivers. To me, that makes him worth the money. I don’t think Russell would be all that great without Marshawn either, by the way.

    I realize people will say Peterson didn’t make them a winning team, but I would counter that he single handedly carried them to nearly all the wins they did have. Could you imagine if they had any other even competent players? Sounds like Seattle to me…(fyi…gave beast mode the ball and he carried you to the superbowl. Chose to throw instead, lost the superbowl= worth the money).

  53. steelbreeze676 says: Mar 6, 2015 7:29 PM

    They should have passed.

  54. eaglesbar says: Mar 6, 2015 7:31 PM

    and this is why you can’t afford to re-sign Maxwell you do know your team’s going to fall apart and you’re stuck with Marshawn Lynch who isn’t that good for that paper money and that’s why the Eagles let it go was one of the smartest things if you don’t remember the last team to win a Superbowl didn’t have a big name running back on their team the Patriots salty

  55. djaehne says: Mar 6, 2015 7:32 PM

    Three positive test in 2013 season which was your super bowl winning season which makes the title tainted and my team won in the super bowl. Glad I got a reaction out of you though. Patriots 28-24. Four titles in 15 years.

  59. bobnelsonjr says: Mar 6, 2015 7:37 PM

    Home town discount.
    He deserves more money than Peterson.

  60. rap49er says: Mar 6, 2015 7:38 PM

  61. restorativejusticeprogram says: Mar 6, 2015 7:40 PM

    Seahawks losing their salary cap advantage. After Wilson ups for more they will just be no better than the Chargers.

    Said the fan of the team that is about to overpay Maxwell greatly. I’ll take Marshawn and his beastlyness you can have the Seahawks scraps. The reason they can’t afford Maxwell is because Sherm, Thomas and Kam are all making big money already. Can’t pay everyone. Good thing Pete makes mid round DBs into pro bowlers.

    Let’s revisit the McCoy deal if and when you get a QB. Then we will see how smart the deal was.

    A big name running back got the Seahawks to back to back super bowls. I think all Eagle fans would take that.

  63. zorn2largent says: Mar 6, 2015 7:41 PM

    eaglesbar you do realize that your team has no QB that the coaches like, no RB you are letting maclin go test FA. Trent cole and Cary Williams are gone. Might as well change the Eagles to the philly Ducks.

    This time last year Seahawk fans were acting like Lynch was expendable while he played his Jedi Mind tricks.

    He deserves the money and so does Murray.

    Um, ACTUALLY…the last failed test by Bruce Irvin was May 2013. Before the 2013-2014 season even began. Are you referring to Browner and Thurmond testing positive for weed? Because last time I checked pot isn’t considered a PED, but nice try. Remind me again how many of those 4 titles aren’t tainted…because everyone outside of Boston knows the Pats can’t win without cheating.

  69. johndoe101776 says: Mar 6, 2015 7:52 PM

    Pay Wilson and the money going to dry up.
    Wilson would be smart to hold out…no way he should go into the final year of his deal at current deal.
    Don’t care if they got Lynch they’ll still pass on the 1 yard line…LOL!!!

    How is any super bowl tainted 2001,03,04 wasn’t against the rules to film from that angle. No proof has been shown in deflate gate. Talk about cheats Seattle is know as the PED Hawks. Its ok to envy The legendary Bill and GOAT Tom Brady since he did just defeat the so called legion of boom.

  73. winninaintsinnin says: Mar 6, 2015 8:03 PM

    The best team in the NFL since Wilson arrived… Seattle

    Best team since Carrol took over a sub 500 team… Seattle

    GOAT QB over first three years in the NFL… Wilson

    I know it hurts but sometimes the truth hurts.

    Live with it.

    ONE positive PED test before the 2013 season for Bruce Irvin. The other two positive tests were for marijuana. (Oh, and one of those failed marijuana tests was for Brandon Browner, whom your team signed last year.)

    The Patriots also had a PED suspension for Brian Tyms, if memory serves, which means that New England had just as many PED suspensions in their Super Bowl winning season as Seattle did in theirs. So by your “logic,” wouldn’t that make YOUR title tainted?

    Running back is such a plug and play , devalued position in today’s game. That said, Marshawn may be the only RB I would pay that kind of money. Perfect for that team and really, really good. I thought he had the perfect number of carries last season, playoffs included….yep

    Nice to see someone actually value the RB position.
    =====================================

    The “value” of this particular rb lies in yards after contact, not just getting what’s blocked for him. By that measure, Lynch is not nearly as replaceable as many other backs are.

  88. jimeejohnson says: Mar 6, 2015 9:10 PM

    Patriots wouldn’t be champions had the Seahawks given Beast Mode the ball. The end.

  89. Brandon in Northwest Suburbia says: Mar 6, 2015 9:11 PM

    It’s a lot cheaper to pay a back that consistently gets more than what’s blocked for him an extra $5m for one more year than it is to spend $30m-40m+ on long-term contracts to upgrade the O-line.

    No brainer for Seattle to give Lynch a raise.

  90. jimeejohnson says: Mar 6, 2015 9:13 PM

    But New England is THE champion, jealous haters notwithstanding.

  91. slick50ks says: Mar 6, 2015 9:34 PM

    That’s just too much, but without him the QB position is seriously exposed.

    They’ll live to regret this contract, and the one they’ll be giving to a very limited Wilson.

    See Jamaal Charles for a reasonable RB contract. And he’s better anyway.

  92. denrec says: Mar 6, 2015 9:34 PM

    Served by who. Hawks are proven cheaters in there super bowl year. Patriots have never been proven cheaters in there super bowl year. Spy gate has no bearing on there three titles and deflate gate has no proof so far. Seahawks had most positive test for ped’s 2010-2013, that includes super bowl year. Patriots never had positive ped test in the years they won the Super Bowl. Facts destroy I know.

    Everyone hates the Seahawks because it’s easier than trying to love their own crappy team. It’s awesome.

    The only teams loved by all are the perennial losers. Everyone hates the great teams that win every season. I bask in the hatred of my Seahawks, it is the ultimate compliment. The ultimate recognition that the Seahawks are the greatest team in the NFL, the enemy that every team fears, the opponent that superbowl champions dread, the obstacle to every fans happiness who lives outside of Seattle.

    Bow down and recognize the greatness. When you open your jealous mouth and spout ignorance, that’s exactly what you’re doing. Giving recognition to the greatest team in sports today – the Seattle Seahawks, baby.

  101. jagsfanugh says: Mar 6, 2015 10:23 PM

    He deserves it. Imagine him not being there and the most over rated qb having to take the team on his shoulders? That would be a nightmare.

    I think he’s the next John Riggins in this way- he keeps playing at a high level well into his 30’s….. Powerful style, this guy is a monster!! He is really a special talent. Hate him & his team if you like, he is a special player. They’ll talk about him 30 yrs later I promise you.

  107. helicopterpilot13 says: Mar 6, 2015 11:33 PM

    Funny, early in his career he was a lightweight back. Check it out. He maybe weighed 190 pounds.

  108. dvdman123 says: Mar 7, 2015 12:08 AM

    Sorry Seahawks but you overpaid……beast mode or not 29 year old RBs are just not worth that kind of money these days.

    Three positive test in 2013 season which was your super bowl winning season which makes the title tainted and my team won in the super bowl. Glad I got a reaction out of you though. Patriots 28-24. Four titles in 15 years.”

    ONE positive PED test before the 2013 season for Bruce Irvin. The other two positive tests were for marijuana. (Oh, and one of those failed marijuana tests was for Brandon Browner, whom your team signed last year.)

    The Patriots also had a PED suspension for Brian Tyms, if memory serves, which means that New England had just as many PED suspensions in their Super Bowl winning season as Seattle did in theirs. So by your “logic,” wouldn’t that make YOUR title tainted?

    Tyms had tested positive before he ever joined the pats unlike Bruce Irvin. Nice try though

    2007 The Patriots were videotaping the Jets’ coaches from their own sideline which is not allowed $500,000 fine for Billy B $250,000 fine for daddy Kraft and a loss of a first round pick.(this was legal though right?)
    September 2, 2007 4 games Rodney Harrison
    November 9, 2012 4 games Brandon Bolden
    November 26, 2012 4 games Jermaine Cunningham
    April 21, 2014 4 games Brian Tyms
    2015 Deflategate …….TBD

    Blunt should have been suspended for having a bag of weed on him with Bell, along with whoever told him he had a job when he was done with the steelers.

    Irvin’s suspension was for the first 4 games of 2013 and guess what bud…we won all 4 of them. The other 2 guys served their suspensions and we won without them.

  110. wholelottaawesome says: Mar 7, 2015 12:16 AM

    Love that pic. It’s him looking at all the haters and saying “I just got a check big enough to buy your girlfriend so quit saying stupid things about me” but instead he stays classy and says nothing.

    Beast Mode is the man and the envy of every other team in the NFL.

    imagine him behind Dallas’ line. Murray got tackled by a lot of dbs this year. Beast eats them as a light snack during tv timeouts.

  112. vikingdoode says: Mar 7, 2015 1:37 AM

    This is one running back who deserves that money. Changes a game and you cant stop him. He says nothing to the media…so like watching him crush teams.

    See adrian thats how its done. btw he catches the ball out of the backfield.

  113. bostmm says: Mar 7, 2015 1:46 AM

    I think they are still a reasonable amount under the cap but when they try and tie up Wilson and maybe some others you have to wonder what breakage they have . . .This drive to parity just kills teams as they mature in a sport like this where most contracts are not guaranteed so if the players have half a brain they have to take the immediate cash and run. You gotta pay Wilson as much as Sherman . . .even if you back load his contract. The GM and cap guy must drink themselves to sleep this time of the year. They obviously value RB more that wide receivers. . . maybe not a bad choice when you have the Beast but it will be interesting to see how it plays out over the next couple years.

    Pft will now ban my IP for not knowing how to change my name but, he had the chance/chances to be SB MVP. Inside the 5. That’s alot for a rb.

  115. osiris33 says: Mar 7, 2015 2:33 AM

    So many ignorant posters on here. Seahawks have enough cap space to sign Wilson, Wagner and Suh if they want to. 2 years from now we’ll be talking about how how one bad Derrell Bevel playcall kept the Seahawks from winning 4 in a row.

    Wow, 12 mil for one season for a running back.

    If any back was worth it to any team, it’s this one, but I think other backs might get their hopes up for monster deals that aren’t gonna be there.

    This is a unique situation.

  118. noteamforlosangeles says: Mar 7, 2015 6:56 AM

    And all of the NFC South teams mourn the fact that their road to the Super Bowl will be blocked for at least three more years (especially the Saints).

  119. marianfl24 says: Mar 7, 2015 7:52 AM

    Welcome home Marshawn !! Will once again be an exciting year for the Hawks. Lynch is the heart of this team and he is worth the money.With the other players in the works,this year as in recent years,will be incredible. Go Hawks !

  120. getyourownname says: Mar 7, 2015 8:25 AM

    It’s a nice deal, but just imagine what he could have gotten if he had been good enough to go to with the game on the line.

    Oh, wait.

  121. cafetero1075 says: Mar 7, 2015 8:41 AM

    He is not going to retire and leave 30 mil on the table. He just needs to keep running hard the way he does and he will earn it.

  122. Shinnbone says: Mar 7, 2015 9:08 AM

    Sweet deal for Lynch… he gets the guaranteed money plus and endless supply of PED’s in the disguise of skittles.
    No wonder he’s always eating those little “candies” before each game. wink wink

  123. ikeclanton says: Mar 7, 2015 9:34 AM

    He’s an excellent, game-changing back–Keeps the blunt force ability of that Seahawks offense in tact. They are a threat to return to the Super Bowl and win with him there.

    What I’m worried about (as a Pats fan), is if the matchup is the same again in SB 50, the Seahawks won’t make the same mistake twice.

  124. smackingfools says: Mar 7, 2015 9:38 AM

    NFL contracts are a joke. All for show. He’ll never make it there 3 more years. They threw on the last 2 to make him happy when in reality it’s just gonna cause him to get released early. NFL-dirtiest corporation to work for in America.

  125. wegotsomedogs says: Mar 7, 2015 9:42 AM

    Go google Russell wilsons statistics and records he has broken over first 3 years. Then pick ANY current or future HOF QB and put theirs next to his. We’ll wait for your Mea Culpa.

  127. rollotomasi14 says: Mar 7, 2015 9:58 AM

    Last 8 games of the season Seattle played teams with their back up QBs, played a team with a losing record in the first playoff game, and then had a team self destruct that Seattle had nothing to do with. They won’t make it back.

  128. rukkus1 says: Mar 7, 2015 11:00 AM

    I’d take Marshawn Lynch over LaGarett Blount even if Blount was good

  129. BigAlHeBDMan says: Mar 7, 2015 11:03 AM

    Was speaking cordially to the media part of the deal?

  130. crewchief15 says: Mar 7, 2015 11:04 AM

    Those who say Murray is not worth ML money, whom do you think would have gotten the ball for Dallas (given the same situation in that SB)? That’s right; Murray!!

  131. dacktle49 says: Mar 7, 2015 11:15 AM

    That’s alot of money but he deserves it, he is their offense without Lynch that team is just the LODB’s..
    Ignorant, classless and obnoxious your modern day Seattle “Fan”est. 2012
    But atleast the 1-2’s are the loudest fans in the league!

  132. trollhammer20 says: Mar 7, 2015 11:37 AM

    For the haters and trolls who say this move will cripple Seattle financially, you should know that after this signing, and the release of Miller, Seattle is still over $24 million under the cap. Plenty of space to re-sign both Wagner and Wilson and pursue a free agent or two. Plus, an additional four compensatory picks in this year’s draft, thanks to other teams poaching away talent in the last offseason.

  133. sjsuguy says: Mar 7, 2015 6:01 PM

    No brainer he’s 99% of their offense. He makes everything else they do happen.

    Looks like seattle does beat the Pats in PED Use. How many titles has Seattle won without positive test oh that’s right Zero.

  135. 2rude86 says: Mar 7, 2015 10:07 PM

    Seattle didnt win the superbowl because of peds. Just like the patriots didnt win because of deflated balls. Seattle lost because our defense was injured badly. Were gonna be contenders for along time. But the pats are done.

  136. ikeclanton says: Mar 8, 2015 10:56 AM

    The Pats are, and have been, a legitimate contender every year with Brady back there. (You may have been under a rock the last 15 years and missed it.) They get better each year through November and December and usually hit the playoffs on a roll with the coaching from top to bottom there. If they get Revis done, They’re no worse than 2nd in Vegas odds to win it again.

    If they don’t, it will be harder.
