Report: Marshawn Lynch wanted $5 million more than what the Seahawks gave him

According to Terry Blount of, the pay bump that the Seahawks gave Marshawn Lynch has been on the table for some time now.

The additional $1.5 million Lynch was given, bumping his guaranteed compensation from $5 million to $6.5 million this season, was offered to Lynch in May after he first made team officials aware that he wanted more money. The offer never changed.

Lynch wanted a whole lot more money than what Seattle gave him.

He basically wanted all of his 2015 salary ($5.5 million) up front in 2014, something the Seahawks had no intention of giving him.
