Report: Marshawn Lynch’s Total Fines Are Up To $455K


According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has triggered a $275,000 fine by holding out of training camp through today.

  • Schefter adds that Lynch’s fine, which happens to be a forfeiture of signing bonus, can grow by 1 percent for each day he misses.
  • The maximum Lynch can be fined is 25 percent or $375,000.
  • The Seahawks can also impose another $30,000 per day in fines, which means Lynch’s current fines add up to $455,000, per Schefter

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen previously reported that this could happen if Lynch were to continue his holdout.

HC Pete Carroll told reporters on Tuesday that he’s hopeful Lynch will report to camp soon enough.

“I love this kid,” Carroll said, per Bob Condotta. “I hope he will figure it out and it will all make sense and it will come to a resolution somewhere.”

Seattle is already paying Lynch a top-five salary in terms of APY ($7.5 million) and guaranteed ($17 million) money, and have given no indication that they are willing to rework his current deal to appease his salary demands.

Last year, Lynch appeared in all 16 games and ran for 1,257 yards on 301 carries (4.2 YPC) and scored 14 total touchdowns.

I’m sure we’ll be hearing plenty more regarding this topic in the coming days.
