|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|

Carroll: Seahawks have had 'big offers' to keep Marshawn Lynch
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters Friday that he hasn't talked to running back Marshawn Lynch yet, but that Seattle is negotiating "in earnest" to re-sign the running back to a contract extension. According to Will Brinson of CBSSports.com, Carroll revealed that the Seahawks have had "big offers out there" to keep Lynch.
"We've had big offers out there," coach Pete Carroll said, per NFL.com. "We continue to work with that and we're excited about the future. He's been an integral part of our program for five years we love the contributions that he's brought. He's a great character in the program and all of that. So we're excited to move ahead. We'd really like to move with that quickly."
Lynch, 28, is due a base salary of $5 million in 2015, but is also contemplating retirement. He rushed for 1,306 yards, and set career highs in rushing touchdowns (13) and receiving yards (367) in 2014, leading Seattle to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances. General manager John Schneider revealed earlier in the week that he's unsure if Lynch will retire, but would like to get an answer from him soon.
Seahawks GM Schneider: We'd like to get an answer from Lynch soon

|(2/19/15) Although a report from former Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson surfaced recently that running back Marshawn Lynch is considering retirement, general manager John Schneider told reporters during his Thursday combine press conference that he has not received any indications of Lynch hanging it up this offseason, though he noted that it wouldn't shock him.
"I think everybody needs time away -- especially at that position, you know, and the way he runs the ball -- a little time to hit the reset button," Schneider told reporters, per the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. "So I've talked to his people a bunch, his representatives. He knows we want him to play. So yeah, we're going to just wait."
Lynch is due a base salary of $5 million in 2015. He rushed for 1,306 yards, and set career highs in rushing touchdowns (13) and receiving yards (367) in 2014.
Schneider also said he has contacted Lynch's representatives and would like to get an answer from them "soon."
"I've talked to his people a bunch, he knows we want him to play," Schneider said, per the team's official website. "We'd like to know. Like I said, I talked to his people, so they know (that)."
|There was plenty of speculation that Marshawn Lynch wouldn't return to the Seahawks this season based on his contract, but he not only will play for Seattle in 2015, he managed a raise out of it as well. Lynch signed a new deal worth $24 million over two seasons. He's coming off a superb season in 2014 with 280 carries for 1,306 yards and 13 touchdowns and 37 catches for 367 yards and four touchdowns. The rushing touchdowns, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns were all career highs, and he did this despite a 400-touch campaign, including the playoffs, in 2013. His workload remains an issue based on his total touches the past four years, but Lynch should still be considered an elite Fantasy option behind Seattle's stout offensive line. It's worth handcuffing Lynch, 29, with either Christine Michael or Robert Turbin (keep an eye on who wins the No. 2 job in training camp), but Lynch should still be selected no later than Round 2 in all leagues.
