Report: Seahawks will let Marshawn Lynch keep $5 million in bonus money

Marshawn Lynch

The Seattle Seahawks could have asked Marshawn Lynch for his bonus money back, but they are reportedly not going to.

Lynch had two years remaining on his deal which had a prorated $7.5 million signing bonus. That would have paid him $2.5 million in signing bonus cash for each of those years. With Lynch’s retirement, the Seahawks could have asked for that money back, but are reportedly content to let him keep it.

It does count as a $2.5 million cap hit for Seattle for the next two seasons, so it’s a pretty generous retirement gift from the organization.

You can add that $5 million tally to the pile of cash that Lynch reportedly has yet to even spend. Of course, maybe he’s just biding his time until he comes back.
