    PFT says

    Under Lynch’s previous contract, he was due to make a $5 million base salary this year, plus $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses, and he could have earned another $500,000 in incentives if he had rushed for 1,500 yards. Now Lynch gets a base salary of $6 million (meaning the Seahawks effectively guaranteed the $1 million he previously would have had to earn), plus they’re taking $500,000 that he had been scheduled to get paid in 2015 and giving it to him now instead. In all, Lynch will make $6.5 million this year. And no fines

    As this is almost certainly the last money he sees from this team it's a win/win.

    Agreed. Heard that Turbin and Michael were starting to look pretty sharp in camp during Lynch's absence. Gonna be interesting to see how the touches are split up come the season. Would really like to see what Michael can do against first team defenses in the preseason...

    We do not know what is going to happen next year with Lynch, all this stuff that he is gone after this season is just speculation.

    The team is still processing information. In their grand master plan they probably have plans for both scenarios

    Does Marshawn play up to his contract? will be a key question, if he is getting 1600+ yards and starts scoring 15 + TDs, it is most likely that he remains for another season.

    Next is how much of the Salary cap hits of players that are getting renewed be pushed down the road. Yes Wilson is going to command huge dollars but they can structure it in away that it is cap friendly first year so we can keep Lynch and sign others.

    Next is health, if Lynch gets injured, he is unlikely he will be back, but injuries to Michael or Turbin could make keeping Lynch more desirable.

    Lots of information needs to be processed first

    His 2015 salary is on par with what he made the last 3 years

    Well said. I've been a constant believer that he will be back following a good season. Too many are focused on carries and age. There's zero sign that he's deteriorating, at all.
