Marshawn Lynch finds the end zone in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch made his presence felt despite being limited to only one drive Friday night against the Bears in exhibition play.

Lynch took his first handoff for a gain of 3 yards. His second touch was a six yard dash and his third handoff resulted in a 7-yard touchdown run, capping off a seven-play scoring drive. He finished with three carries for 16 yards and a touchdown, averaging 5.3 yards per touch.

Marshawn Lynch set to rack up carries in preseason clash


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Pete Carroll said that "it's time" for featured back Marshawn Lynch to ramp up the reps. The result will be far more playing time Friday night against Chicago.

Carroll did not announce Thursday how long the starters would play, but did acknowledge that the third preseason game would be the one in which they play the most. They are likely to remain on the field into the third quarter, per the Everett Herald.

Lynch was in on just two plays in the last game without a carry. That is destined to change against the Bears.

"It's time for him to get some carries and get involved a little bit," Carroll said. "I could not be more pleased with the conditioning level that he's had, the consistency of practice and his preparation has been great. He'll be ready to go."

Pete Carroll: Marshawn Lynch dropped weight, in 'great shape'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch turned in a very good practice Sunday, with coach Pete Carroll saying afterward that Lynch is in "great shape" and "just as fit as he ever has been," reports ESPN.com. Lynch ran hard and looked "like the man who has been one of the NFL’s best running back the last three seasons," the report said.

"He’s getting a lot closer," Carroll said. "He had a very good practice [Sunday]. We’re just trying to do it properly. I really liked the way he got after it.

"He got stuff in all phases of the practice. He caught some balls well, blocked well and ran the ball real nice. So a really good first day. This is the first week he has a chance to really compete. He brought a great attitude [Sunday]."

Carroll said Lynch's weight is "way down" and that he won't need many preseason carries to get ready for the regular-season opener.


Marshawn Lynch 'needs a lot of work to get back'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said running back Marshawn Lynch, who missed the first part of camp in a contract holdout, "needs a lot of work" to return to form. "He's coming along," Carroll said.

"We're progressing him with his reps and each week we'll continue to amp him and see where we can get him to, and just take it one week at a time. He needs a lot of work to get back."

Lynch won't play in Thursday's preseason opener.


Marshawn Lynch will practice soon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who ended his contract holdout Thursday, did not practice Friday. Running backs coach Sherman Smith said Lynch has been cleared and will practice soon.

"We are looking for him getting out there and getting some reps," Smith told the Seattle Times. "I can’t wait to see it."

Lynch is unlikely to participate in Saturday's scrimmage, or to get much work in preseason games.

"Not much more than he’s gotten in the past," Smith said of the preseason. "Marshawn doesn’t do a lot of running in the preseason, so that’s the way it’s going to be. He comes back, nothing is going to change. Absolutely nothing."


Marshawn Lynch retools current contract, receives higher base salary


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) The week-long holdout worked to a certain extent for Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch. The 28-year-old restructured his current contract with the Seahawks, which will give him $6 million guaranteed this season, per Pro Football Talk.

Lynch will make a $5 million base salary in 2014, with a possible $500,000 roster bonus and another $500,000 bonus if he reaches 1,500-plus rushing yards. He totaled over 1,500 yards of offense with 14 total touchdowns last year but had over 400 total touches between the regular season and postseason.

Marshawn Lynch reports to camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch officially ended his holdout and reported to training camp, reports NFL Network. His holdout lasted less than a week.

Report: Marshawn Lynch ending holdout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch plans to end his holdout in the next 24 hours and report to training camp, reports ESPN. He won't get the new deal he was seeking, according to reporter Adam Schefter, but the team will "add some financial concessions to his contract."

GM on Marshawn Lynch: 'Next man up'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Seahawks general manager John Schneider told the Seattle Times that everybody loves and respects running back Marshawn Lynch, but the team won't deviate from its longterm plan. Lynch is holding out because he's upset with his contract, which has two years remaining.

"We’re just going with our plan, and I know it’s cliché-ish but next man up," he said. "We’ve had a plan in place here for a number of years, and we can’t veer from that plan for one person because it’s the ultimate team sport."

Schneider said the plan involves making tough decisions.

"You make models two and three years out, and you have to stick to that and know that there’s going to be tough decisions along the way," he said. "We had to let guys like Red Bryant go, Chris Clemons, we weren’t able to sign Breno (Giacomini), Golden Tate. You have to be able to make those decisions along the way knowing you’ll be able to re-sign Michael Bennett and maybe there’s a free agent that comes in and fits in your bracket. It’s just one of those deals where you have to keep going about your business, and you can’t veer off of that.

"Around here we talk about what’s next, and the next person is up. That being said, last year we went through this with Brandon Browner. He had his deal, and (Byron Maxwell) got his opportunity. Hey, Marshawn Lynch is phenomenal. Phenomenal player and just a unique part of what we’ve had going on here. Two years ago we were able to redo his deal, and he was a big part of that foundation that we started here."


Pete Carroll hopes Marshawn Lynch 'will figure it out'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll on Tuesday addressed the contract holdout by running back Marshawn Lynch. "I love this kid," Carroll said, per the Seattle Times. "I hope he will figure it out and it will all make sense and it will come to a resolution somewhere."

Lynch can be fined $30,000 for every day he misses, and the team could try to go after a portion of his signing bonus.


Seahawks won't change philosphy if Marshawn Lynch doesn't show


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said the team won't change its run-first philosophy, regardless of how long Marshawn Lynch's holdout lasts. Seattle ran the ball a league-high 54.8 percent of the time last year.

"I think our plan has been pretty successful," Bevell told the Seattle Times. "We play great defense, we take great care of the football and we run the football, and that keeps us in games and allows us to exert our will on the opponent, that physical toughness that we like to do ... That’s our style and our philosophy and we are going to continue to do that."

Lynch's contract holdout isn't expected to last too long. In the meantime, Christine Michael and Robert Turbin are the team's top two backs.

Marshawn Lynch is holding out. Now what?!


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Fantasy owners should be nervous about drafting Marshawn Lynch -- and that's even if he weren't holding out! Now that Lynch has reportedly decided to stay away from Seahawks camp until he gets an improved contract, Fantasy owners have to weigh the risk involved with a back with many red flags like Lynch. 

I'll still draft Lynch as a borderline No. 1/No. 2 Fantasy running back until Aug. 16. If he's not back in camp by then, I'm not touching him. But either way, I'm aiming for Christine Michael, his backup, to be on my roster with a pick beginning in Round 8. Here's more on what to do with Lynch in Fantasy this summer. 


Ex-teammate: Marshawn Lynch to hold out of training camp


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who's reportedly unhappy with his contract, is expected to hold out of training camp, former teammate Michael Robinson told NFL Network Total Access on Thursday.

"Marshawn Lynch just called me, we just talked. He said he will be holding out from training camp," Robinson said on the show.

Lynch attended the team's mandatory minicamp and is subject to fines if he holds out of training camp. He totaled over 1,500 yards of offense with 14 total touchdowns last year but had over 400 total touches between the regular season and postseason.


Marshawn Lynch to lose a few carries per game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch averaged 18.8 carries last year and went over 300 totes for the second straight season. With coaches wanting to keep Lynch fresh and see what Christine Michael can do, the Seattle Times expects Lynch to average 15-16 carries this year.

That would translate to about 50 fewer carries from the 301 Lynch got in the 2013 regular season.


Marshawn Lynch mum on training camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who's reportedly unhappy with his contract, was asked by NFL Network whether he was excited about coming to training camp "We'll talk about that when that time comes, boss,” Lynch said.

Ex-teammate: Marshawn Lynch still unhappy with contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Despite his presence at minicamp last week, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch remains unhappy with his contract, former Seattle fullback Michael Robinson said.

"The guy has been the face of this franchise since the day he stepped in that door, it’s been Beast Mode. Just from my knowledge of it, he has been the face of the franchise. Pete (Carroll) (general manager) John (Schneider), they’ve made no qualms about saying that. And he’s (Lynch) just like ‘I just want to be paid like it.’ I think the devaluation of the (running) back doesn’t help his case, the fact that he has two years let on his deal doesn’t help his case, which I’ve expressed to him," Robinson told the Tacoma News Tribune.

"The fact that the biggest free agent running back signing got $3.5 million a season (Chris Johnson) doesn’t help him. But you take Marshawn Lynch off the team last year, do we win the Super Bowl? I think all of us know the answer to that. He just wants to be paid like it. He knows he has a short window left. Nobody says anything when teams cut a guy at this juncture, though. I’m all in for players getting their dollars, man, because you have a short life."


Marshawn Lynch shows up, doesn't practice


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) The Seahawks were excited to see running back Marshawn Lynch appear at their minicamp on Tuesday, but then he sat out of practice. According to the Tacoma News Tribune, head coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Lynch likely won't practice this week as he's resting an ankle injury. Furthermore, Carroll intimated that Lynch wouldn't play much in the preseason. 

"In this case it's unique, but he's a unique player on our football team," Carroll said. "We'll do what we have to do to take care of him. You won't see him get the ball a lot in preseason. We'll work all the way to opening day to have him right and ready to go. That's most important."
