According to reports the Seahawks have signed running back Marshawn Lynch to a four-year, $31 million contract. $18 million is guaranteed.
This can also translate to 31,313,313 bags of Skittles.
The Seahawks now have a very big decision to make in the next 18 hours. With Lynch re-signed we can now decide to use our franchise tag on a different player. If I had to take a guess on which player will receive the tag, should we decide to use it, my money is on linebacker David Hawthorne. Hawthorne would receive a one-year, $8.8 million dollar tender if he is tagged.
The franchise tag deadline is tomorrow (March 5th) at 1:00 pacific time. I will update the blog when I learn more about our intentions in regards to the franchise tag. Stay tuned!
