Camp holdout still possible for Marshawn Lynch

Seattle Times - [Full Article]

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch reported to mini-camp, but that doesn’t rule out a holdout for training camp, which is possible since it’s known he’d still like the Seahawks to do something to buff up a contract that has two years remaining, in which he is due to make $5 million in 2014 and $5.5 million in 2015. Several close to Lynch have now said that what Lynch wants is some more up front money in case the Seahawks cut him after the 2014 season, as many speculate the team is likely to consider.

Fantasy Impact: 

Drama has followed Lynch around this offseason. The team also implied it was ready to play RBBC given how well Christine Michael played at OTAs, but later backtracked. Lynch could also face suspension from the league after pleading guilty to reckless driving (which started as a DUI arrest two years ago). Still, he has three straight top 5 finishes under his belt, so if the offseason drama passes, he should once again be a rock-solid pick in the late 1st round. Until then, there's some risk here.
