Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll revealed that he is disappointed in running back Marshawn Lynch for holding out of training camp.
The Seattle Seahawks are coming off a convincing Super Bowl victory, but their first piece of offseason drama has arrived.
Running back Marshawn Lynch is holding out of training camp as he hopes to receive a new contract even though there are two years remaining on his current one.
Head coach Pete Carroll expressed his disappointment in Lynch. “I’m disappointed not having him, you know. He’s been a big part of our team and we like him around here,” the former USC coach said in an NFL Media interview.
Lynch has maintained an elite level of production over his last three seasons, carrying the ball at least 285 times and rushing for at least 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns.
His ability to break tackles has made him known as “Beast Mode.” However, there are two running backs behind him that are ready to step up if his holdout continues.
Carroll himself expressed optimism that Robert Turbin and Christine Michael can carry the load at running back and take advantage of their opportunities.
