Marshawn Lynch to end hold out, report to training camp

By Leighton Schneider,

Marshawn Lynch is set to end his holdout and will join his Seattle Seahawks teammates at training camp.

According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter it could be in as little as 24 hours.

Lynch has held out of training camp for eight days, according to ESPN. He can be fined $30,000 dollars per day of training camp he misses and has been fined almost $500,000 this off-season.

It is not known whether the Seahawks will make Lynch pay his fines.

Lynch told Michael Robinson of NFL.com last week that he would hold out from camp to try to earn a higher contract.

Lynch will earn $5.5 million dollars for the 2014 NFL season. He wants to be paid more money, closer to Adrian Peterson or Jamaal Charles who just got a new contract extension.

Last season, Lynch led the NFL with 12 red zone rushing touchdowns and was second in both red zone rushes and yards after contact.

Over the past three seasons combined, Lynch has rushed for over 4,000 yards on 901 carries and has scored 39 rushing touchdowns.
