The will-he, won’t-he? Marshawn Lynch debate has ended for now.
The Seahawks running back reported for the team’s mandatory mini-camp Tuesday, putting to rest any ideas that he would hold out because he wants changes to his contract.
Lynch apparently still would like some changes to his contract, which has two years remaining.
But since the mini-camp is mandatory — unlike the earlier OTAs that Lynch skipped — he would have been subject to fines of almost $70,000. So for now, Lynch is in camp, ready for his first official action with the team since the Super Bowl
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.
