According to Rapoport, "both sides seem pleased" with the situation and are ready to move forward.
Lynch struggled through an injury-plagued 2015, missing a large portion of the season after undergoing sports hernia surgery. He was outperformed by rookie running back Thomas Rawls, who is expected to inherit the lead role in Seattle's backfield going forward.
The $5 million is surely welcome, but Lynch is hardly hurting for funds. Rapoport reported during Super Bowl week that Lynch has not spent a dime of compensation from playing football, the presumption being that Beast Mode has lived off endorsements and other ventures.
I'd like to try a similar prudent financial strategy. Just need to acquire some endorsements and other ventures.
