by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"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.

Patriots RB Vereen: 'Different ending' if Seahawks run Lynch


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) Much of the country had the same thought following the Seahawks' final offensive play against the Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX. That was that if running back Marshawn Lynch was given the ball from inside the 1-yard line, the game and season's championship would have gone to Seattle.

Instead, the Seahawks ran a passing play which was picked off by Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler.

Appearing on the NFL Network's NFL AM on Monday, Patriots running back Shane Vereen admitted the outcome of what was a thrilling Super Bowl may have been different if Lynch got the ball in that moment.

"I think it's a different game, I think it's a different ending," Vereen said. "When I was on the sideline, and I saw where they had the ball in the situation, we were trying to get some plays together for the offense to try and get at least a field goal to tie the thing up. So my focus was mainly more on that, 'cause I definitely thought they were going to hand it to him and he was gonna punch it in."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

ESPN's Adam Schefter had reported Lynch could face a big fine for using media day to promote a brand not approved by the league.

On media day, Lynch showed up and gave the same answer to reporters 29 times. "I'm just here so I won't get fined" became an instant classic, and even Katy Perry joined in.


Carroll: Seahawks in negotiations with Marshawn Lynch


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2015) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that the team has been in negotiations with running back Marshawn Lynch on a new contract. 

In a Tuesday morning appearance on 710 ESPN radio in Seattle, Carroll was asked about Lynch's future with the team. He is about to enter his final year of a four-year contract and will have a salary cap number of approximately $8.5 million. 

"We'll see," Carroll said. "We've been in the midst of negotiations for a long time for the future, so we'll see how that goes." 

Prior to the Super Bowl, the NFL Network and ESPN had conflicting reports on whether or not the team had started negotiations with Lynch. 


Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch not upset about final play


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2015) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was not upset about the team's final play call, according to NFL.com. 

When asked whether he was surprised that he did not receive the ball on the final play, Lynch said "no, because football is a team sport." Lynch was a constant force during the game, carrying the ball 24 times for 102 yards and a score. He also hauled in a 31 yard reception during the contest. Though others on the team questioned the decision to pass the ball from the one yard line, Lynch opted not to throw anyone under the bus.

Lynch's biggest play of the game never had a chance to materialize. With the Seahawks on the one yard line, the team opted to pass the ball instead of run Lynch. Russell Wilson was intercepted on the play, ending the team's comeback attempt.

Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch mostly held in check on Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Lynch performed well enough, but didn't receive a ton of attempts. He gained 59 yards on 14 carries, good for a 4.2 average. Lynch did have three receptions, but only gained 6 yards through the air. The Seattle offense mostly revolved around Russell Wilson for this game, so Lynch took a bit of a backseat this time around. 

Lynch will look for more next week, when the team takes on the winner of the Packers/Cowboys in the NFC Championship.
