Immediately after the Seattle Seahawks lost Super Bowl XLIX to the New England Patriots 28-24 conspiracy theory’s began floating around that with 2nd-and-goal on the 1-yard line and time running down, the Seahawks opted to pass the ball, over handing off to running back Marshawn Lynch, to avert any possibility of making him the games MVP.

ESPN’s Jim Trotter chased him down immediately after the game and asked him if he expected to get the ball in the goal line situation.

"No. Because we play football. It's a team sport,” Lynch said.

The running back has been tight lipped about the call since the then, but recently opened up during an interview with NTV Spor, during a trip to Turkey for an American Football Without Barriers camp in the country.

"To be honest with you, I would be lying if I didn't tell you that I was expecting the ball. Yes, I was expecting the ball. But in life, these things happen. Like I told a reporter after the game, it's a team sport," Lynch said.

Seattle Seahawks Offer Marshawn Lynch Multi-Year Extension Worth an Estimated $21 Million Dollars

February 21st, 2015 at 2:10 PM
By Rich Monroe

Seattle Seahawks’ general manager John Schneider and Marshawn Lynch’s agent Doug Hendrickson, met yesterday in Indianapolis after the day’s NFL Scouting Combine activities ended, to hammer out details on ways to keep the 28–year old running back on the team for another two or three years.

Yahoo Sports Rand Getlin reported today that the deal would pay Lynch between $11 or $12 million this season and $9 million next season, which could draw out to a three year deal.

Lynch is set to earn a $5 million base plus a $2 roster bonus this season. Additionally, he’s already collected the prorated $1.5 million portion of last years signing bonus, so under his current contract Seattle would absorb an $8.5 million hit towards the teams 2015 salary cap.

Schneider’s offer is tremendously fair and throws Lynch plenty of respect. Most likely, the $21 million would include a large front–loaded signing bonus, that would be spread out over the two or three years, bringing Lynch’s overall cap hit down this season by $1–2 million.

It’s unknown whether or not Lynch will accept the offer because it’s speculated that he may wish to retire after eight seasons in the league.
