Seahawks Offer Marshawn Lynch Extension

The Seahawks have made an offer to star running back Marshawn Lynch that could keep him with the team as one of the highest-paid runners in football for the next two years, reports Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports.

The deal will reportedly be worth between $11MM and $12MM in the first year, followed by a $9MM base salary in year two, and could be a three-year contract.

Lynch is currently scheduled to earn $5MM in base salary in the last year of his contract, but the proposed extension would make him the second-highest paid running back in the NFL in 2015, after Adrian Peterson.

Lynch had been considering retirement, but the Seahawks are hoping this new extension will entice him to remain with the team and try to match his 1,300 yards and 13 touchdown production from 2014.
