Marshawn Lynch's potential mandatory minicamp holdout turned out to be much ado about nothing. Lynch arrived for practice with his Seattle Seahawks teammates Tuesday, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
NFL Media's Omar Ruiz, on location in Seattle, reported Lynch took the field with his teammates Tuesday, but did not participate in the team stretch, or any other drills. The All-Pro, wearing a practice jersey over a hoodie and warm-up sweat pants, was on the sideline with Sidney Rice and Malcolm Smith, who also did not partake in team activities.
Lynch's arrival should be one less headache for the Seahawks to deal with, but it doesn't necessarily end the story. Lynch could theoretically still hold out of training camp, and he could continue to seek out adjustments to his contract.
Perhaps the Seahawks could give Lynch a small performance-based bonus to his contract or come up with some sort of band-aid to keep one of their best players happy. The entire conversation, however, is a reminder that the Seahawks will be planning for life without Lynch soon enough. He's due $7.5 million next season and Seattle has a great replacement on the roster in Christine Michael.
