xSeahawks head coach Pete Carroll voiced his displeasure on Friday with Marshawn Lynch holding out from training camp.
“It’s a contract for a reason. We made a decision and it was signed, by us and by them,” Carroll told USA TODAY Sports after the Seahawks’ first training camp practice. “We expect them to honor their contract just as we will. We’re going to honor it and we expect them to do the same. …
“We’ve had a big plan for a long time working here, and Marshawn is a huge part of that plan, and we made a huge commitment to him a couple years ago. He remains a big part of that plan – if he’ll show up. The same thing will carry over to Doug (Baldwin) and Richard and Earl and Kam (Chancellor) and all of the guys that have signed with us.”
“He’s got his own mind on this,” Carroll said. “We’ve communicated quite a bit, and I know where he is on it and we just have to see what happens.”
I would bet that if Carroll was in the same position he would be hold out too.
