Report: Seahawks offer RB Lynch huge contract, includes raise for 2015

BY foxsports • February 1, 2015

The Seattle Seahawks have reportedly made a contract offer to running back Marshawn Lynch.

According to the NFL Network, Lynch has been offered a "huge" contract that would keep him with the Seahawks for years to come.

The report states that the deal is "believed to include more than $10 million for Lynch in the 2015 season alone," the final year of his four-year deal in which he was originally expected to make $5 million.

Lynch has rushed for at least 1,200 yards in each of the past four seasons and helped lead his team to Sunday's Super Bowl. He's also gained headlines for his media sessions, in which he has often answered multiple questions with the same answer.

On the field this season, Lynch rushed for 1,306 yards this season and led the NFL with 17 touchdowns (13 rushing and four receiving, both career highs).
