It was made public on Thursday that Seahawks superstar Marshawn Lynch is expected to holdout of training camp until he renegotiates his contract with the team.

Last month, Lynch threatened to sit out of Seattle’s mandatory minicamp activities, but he ended up attending all three days of activities.

Is he more serious about holding out this time?

Pro Football Talk reported on Thursday that there is a “zero percent chance” Lynch will show up to training camp without a new contract.

But is it fair for Lynch to put this distraction on the Seahawks?

Is he right to demand a contract?

Well, yes and no.
