Joel Corry of CBS Sports mentions that it wouldn’t be a “smart business decision” for the Seahawks to retain RB Marshawn Lynch at his current price — $5 million base salary and $2 million in per-game roster bonuses.
“It’s not a smart business decision to pay a running back big money in ages 29-31,’’ Corry said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “You see that when teams have a back that is approaching 30, they are trying to find alternatives. They (the Seahawks) are going to be looking at the fact that he’s going to have 2,000 regular-season carries (he has 1,885 right now). That’s high mileage for a running back.”
This will be a fascinating topic to watch in the coming months.
