Lynch returning to Seattle in 2015 after all?-- Mon Jan 19 4:30 pm --
"Beast Moda" remains heart and soul of offense
Ian Rapoport reported on NFL Network's NFL GameDay Morning that the Seattle brass is now more than open to the possibility of bringing Marshawn Lynch back at a salary of $5 million a year.
"... Mainly because he actually has outperformed his contract and clearly established himself as the identity of this team," Rapoport said. "Basically, they don't have a choice based on the way he plays to bring him back.(NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:It was a foregone conclusion that Lynch would be cut loose or allowed to retire at season's end a few months ago, but the combination of his tone-setting running ability and the lack of trust in Christine Michael might be contributing to the Seahawks' change of heart. With Seattle preparing to pay Russell Wilson like a franchise quarterback in the coming months, the Seahawks may need to get creative with their salary cap in order to sign up for another year of "Beast Mode".
