Report: Marshawn Lynch's holdout triggers $275,000 fine
Marshawn Lynch is holding out from Seattle Seahawks training camp, and can be fined up to $30,000 for each day he misses. That fine got significantly heavier Tuesday, when Lynch triggered a $275,000 fine under the terms of the CBA, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Tuesday is the sixth straight day Lynch didn't show up to camp. Last week, Lynch called his former teammate and current NFL Network analyst Michael Robinson to let him know about the holdout.
Lynch signed a four-year, $30 million deal in 2012. His base salary this season is $5 million, but the 28-year-old running back is looking to restructure his deal. Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles briefly held out of camp before agreeing to a new two-year deal with the team.
Schefter reports that Lynch's fine total is up to $455,000.
