It had been previously reported that Lynch was going to skip minicamp while he tried renegotiating his contract, but now it looks like that will not be the case.
Lynch would have been fined around $70,000 if he had skipped minicamp, but ESPN.com’s Terry Blount said “sources say Lynch does not want to pay the fine, believing the Seahawks will negotiate with him in good faith.”
Lynch did not participate in any of the Seahawks OTAs earlier this month.
Since joining the Seahawks in 2010, Lynch has been one of the most valuable and productive running backs in the NFL.
After a semi-productive first year in Seattle, “Beast Mode” exploded for a career-year in 2011 and hasn’t looked back since.
In the past three seasons, Lynch has averaged 1,350 yards and 12 touchdowns while only missing one regular season game.
He was one of the biggest contributors to the Seahawks Super Bowl run last season and he is expected to be an offensive force once again this season.
Lynch is about to begin the third year of his four-year, $30 million contract which will pay him $5 million in base salary for the 2014 season.
His salary makes him the fifth-highest paid running back in the league.
