Former Seahawk Michael Robinson, who is the de facto spokesman for Marshawn Lynch, shed a bit more light on the holdout by the Seattle running back in comments made today on the NFL Network, for which Robinson is now an employee.
Seahawks general manager John Schneider, in an appearance on ESPN 710 Seattle radio this morning --- the team's flagship station --- said running back Marshawn Lynch has "made a decision not to be here'' as training camp starts today.
Marshawn Lynch, who threatened to hold out during Seattle’s minicamp last June but then showed up anyway, is expected to be absent when the Seahawks begin training camp Friday. The news was revealed by former Seahawk fullback Michael Robinson, who is now working for the NFL Network.
Andrew Wiggins, the first player drafted this year, has an NBA home. Maybe a temporary one. The Cleveland Cavaliers signed him to a long-term deal that pays him $5.5 million this season and prevents him from being traded for 30 days.
