If Marshawn Lynch Retires, He Could Owe Seahawks Millions

The Seahawks have turned into a first-class organization over the last decade or so, with a large part of that success due to the talents of Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch and Peyton Manning are both contemplating retirement, but Beast Mode finds himself in an odd situation, according to CBS Sports.

The Seahawks could cut Lynch, despite giving him a new deal last offseason that included a $7.5 million signing bonus that was prorated over three years ($2.5 million a season).

Lynch has to play two-more seasons to collect that $2.5 million bonus per, or if he decides to retire he could owe the Seahawks $5 million in bonus money.

It would be Seattle’s call, and I believed they prefer that Lynch retire, and keep the money he’s earned and prosper rather than see him come back to haunt them on another team.

Lynch could just sit out until the Seahawks cut him, retire and not pay a thing.
