Various reports: Seahawks at breaking point with Marshawn Lynch?

What has long been assumed locally — that Marshawn Lynch won’t be back with the Seahawks in 2015 — became a focal point of the Sunday morning NFL preview talk shows today.

There were several different reports that the team is tiring of Lynch’s act, further assuring that he won’t be back with the team in 2015.

Recall that Lynch’s training camp holdout was spurred largely by his own assumption that he won’t be around for the final year of his contract, which calls for him to make as much as $8.5 million. He eventually got $1.5 million in added up-front money to return to camp.

ESPN has this story stating that among the issues with Lynch are his “possible contribution to locker-room distractions.”

NFL.com, meanwhile, has this story stating that Lynch is not communicating with management.

NFL.com’s Michael Silver, meanwhile, stated that Lynch harbors grudges against coach Pete Carroll due to workload issues and his holdout:

You may recall that Lynch’s mother, Dalisa, on Thursday night Tweeted after the Denver win over San Diego that “All im saying is Denver RB carried more than 20 times over 100 yards hello Seattle OC!!!! @PeteCarroll @Seahawks and they won !!!

So yeah, the Seahawks might want to win today to quiet things down a bit.
