Seahawks Reportedly Make 2-Year Contract Offer To Marshawn Lynch


One of the questions heading into this NFL offseason had to do with the status of Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch. Would he sign a new deal with the team or leave the game? During the earlier part of the season, it was said the Seahawks were looking to move on from Lynch. But all of that seems to have changed.

A recent report from Yahoo Sports suggests that Seattle is willing to pay Lynch between $11 and $12 million for the 2015 season and about $9 million for the 2016 campaign. A new two-year deal in the $10 million per year range would be absolutely insane for a running back in today’s NFL.

Last season, the 28-year-old Lynch rushed for 1,673 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Running backs are usually assumed to have peaked by the time they reach 30.
