If Seattle would’ve used the franchise tag, they would have owed Lynch $7 million for just one season. The details of this candy loving player’s contract is that it is worth $30 million with a guaranteed $18 million. Talk about a sweet deal.
Lynch rushed for 1,204 yards and 12 touchdowns last season and became a coach favorite for playing with a maturity and attitude that the coaching staff wished the rest of the players would have played with. The dedication of Lynch’s play allowed the Seahawks to win 5 of their 8 final games. Lynch was the first player last season to get a rushing touchdown against the San Francisco in week 16.
Lynch was traded to Seattle from the Bills after his career there took a stall.
Lynch’s career with the Seahawks look promising. With his head in the game and his self recognition of being a pro, he is sure to get the Seahawks to the playoffs this upcoming season, and we all will be watching.
