Lynch Shows Up For Seahawks Minicamp
So much for concern that running back Marshawn Lynch would be absent from the Seattle Seahawks minicamp. Lynch was in attendance when the Super Bowl champions opened their mandatory three-day minicamp on Tuesday. Reports surfaced last week that Lynch might consider not attending the practices in hopes of getting a higher salary for the 2014 season.
Lynch signed a four-year contract before the 2012 season. He is scheduled to make $5 million in base salary this season plus per game roster bonuses.
Lynch could have faced fines of nearly $70,000 if he had decided to skip the minicamp. He did not take part in Tuesday's practice but was on the field watching. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Lynch has a sore ankle and likely will not participate during the three-day camp.
