News: Lynch (ankle), as expected, was not present during the first day of Seahawks minicamp, John Boyle of the Everett Herald reports. Impact: Lynch continues to seek a new deal from the Seahawks, and appears to be ready to sit out training camp until the team addresses the matter. Seattle appears willing to restructure the deal, but they don't seem eager to add money to a deal that was just finalized two years ago. Until the dispute is resolved, Robert Turbin and Christine Michael will see the majority of reps with the first-team offense during camp.(RotoWire, )

Lynch can make up to $5.5 million this season in base pay and roster bonuses. It's the third year of a four-year contract Lynch signed with Seattle before the 2012 season.(STATS, 00:47am)

News: Lynch, according to former teammate Michael Robinson, is expected to hold out of training camp, NFL.com reports. Impact: Lynch is entering the third year of a four-year, $30 million contract that will pay him $5 million in base salary this season. While he skipped Seattle's OTAs in June amid contract dispute rumblings, Lynch was present at the team's mandatory minicamp, avoiding being fined in the process. Now, word from Lynch's former fullback states "Beast Mode" will not attend Friday's first day of training camp and will instead make a stance toward a more lucrative contract. With three consecutive seasons of 285-plus carries, 1,200-plus rushing yards, and double-digit touchdowns, the 28-year-old Lynch believes he's outperformed his current deal and warrants a reward for his gutsy play that helped Seattle claim last season's Super Bowl title. The Seahawks may not be surprised by Lynch's decision, as there were reports earlier this offseason suggesting the team may be amenable to tweaking his contract before this season. With that in mind, it'll be worthwhile to monitor Lynch's situation. Until he reports for camp, steady backup Robert Turbin and highly-touted sleeper Christine Michael will see the bulk of reps at running back.(RotoWire, )
