Marshawn Lynch's battle for a reworked contract is causing the first sense of disappointment in Seattle in a long time.
"I'm disappointed not having him, you know. He's been a big part of our team and we like him around here," Carroll told NFL Media's Rich Eisen. "...Right now, he's at home, and he chose not to come. We're really focused, as we would, on the guys that are here, and the guys had a great offseason, minicamp and are ready to roll."
Always the upbeat coach, Carroll took the chance to talk up backups.
On Friday's edition of ITC Live, Robinson said Lynch is steadfastness in his holdout.
"He's very firm, his resolve is there and he's thought about this very much," Robinson said. "This is not a decision he came at lightly. He very much wishes he could be with his team, he misses his teammates. He expressed how much he misses his teammates. He's working out, he's still doing all the Beast Mode workouts he's used to doing. He just wants to be respected as one of the faces of the franchises."
