Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett told NFL AM on Monday that he believes his teammate Marshawn Lynch should be paid like one of the NFL’s top backs.
“Come back, Marshawn, come back! We need you,” Bennett said, via NFL.com. “Without Marshawn, we wouldn’t win a Super Bowl. Obviously he’s one of the best running backs in the game, and he feels like he should be paid like one of the best backs in the game. And, of course, I agree with him. I mean, for a guy to take those kind of hits in the NFL and continue to do it at a high level?”
While I agree with Bennett, Lynch’s career is almost over and it really doesn’t make sense for Seattle to invest anymore money into him.
