Sources reported that RB Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks are set to talk about the player’s future with Seattle, and sportsbook software services can’t wait to see what the result of these discussions will be.
Right now there aren’t any active talks taking place between the player’s representatives and the Seahawks. His deal is running through the season of 2015.
This season, the RB was able to lead the league with 17 TD’s, and having recorded 1,306 yards, the player ended in fourth place in rushing. The 216 rushing yards recorded by Lynch moving into Sunday were the most made this postseason among the league’s RB’s.
The player is ending the third year of a contract of four years that in 2015 will see him get $6.5 million. In 2015, Lynch will be an $8.5 million hit in the salary cap, but many fans know that if they release the player, the Seahawks would be saving $7 million.
On the 24th of January, GM John Schneider answered questions to the media regarding the player’s contract, and the team’s fans were playing close attention to what he had to say.
“He’s under contract next year and he’s a warrior,” said Schneider. “He goes out there every weekend and lays it on the line. I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a better running back in the National Football League.”
This season, the RB, who sportsbook software services know that at times can be a very controversial player, was given two fines by the league after he made two obscene gestures following TD runs, and was given a fine of $100,000 after he refused to talk to reporters. The GM was asked if he was getting tired of his act, and his response was, “I kind of like his act.”
When training camp took place, the player decided to hold out for eight days over his deal. Lynch then reported following the $1.5 million that he got for the season of 2014, with his guaranteed compensation money moving up from to $6.5 million from $5 million. However, sportsbook software services learned that the player was looking for an additional $5 million.
A report came out in October saying that there were many people in the team – Lynch included – that weren’t expecting the RB to be in Seattle’s roster this year.
