ESPN: Marshawn Lynch Agree to New Deal with Seahawks

ESPN: Marshawn Lynch Agree to New Deal with Seahawks

Jay Drowns/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Beast Mode will be running wild in Seattle once again in 2015 as ESPN is reporting that the Seahawks and running back Marshawn Lynch have agreed on a new contract.

The two sides came to an agreement on a three-year deal. He'll receive $12 million for the 2015 season

Lynch remains one of the top paid running backs in the NFL.

One of the more unique players in the NFL from a personality standpoint, Lynch made it known he wasn't sure whether or not he wanted to play in 2015.

He infamously didn't get a chance to run the ball at the goal-line at the end of the Super Bowl. Instead quarterback Russell Wilson was intercepted by cornerback Malcolm Butler.

The 28-year-old Lynch is one of the best running backs in the NFL. This past season, he ran for 1,306 yards while scoring 13 touchdowns.

He has had at least 1,200 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns in four-straight seasons.

Ex-Seahawk Says Marshawn Lynch Weighing Retirement

Ex-Seahawk Says Marshawn Lynch Weighing Retirement

Leon Halip/Getty Images(SEATTLE) -- Former Seattle Seahawks fullback, Michael Robinson spoke to Marshawn Lynch about possible retirement, and he confirmed that Lynch isn't sure if he will continue to play next season.

"My bet would be that he plays next year in Seattle," Robinson said Thursday during a 710 ESPN Seattle radio interview. "I don't think Marshawn knows yet. I don't know what the timeline is. It's probably going to be a feel thing, and we'll just see like everybody else."

After speaking with Lynch, Robinson also said Lynch is contemplating retirement due to the fact of eight years of being in the NFL, and the beating Lynch has taken on his body because of his physical style of running the football.

Lynch held out of the beginning of training camp last year for eight days, before Lynch and the Seahawks agreed to changes in his contract.

Richard Sherman Opts Against Elbow Surgery

Steve Dykes/Getty Images(SEATTLE, Wa.) -- The provocative and talented cornerback of the Seattle Seahawks has opted against undergoing elbow surgery.

Richard Sherman suffered an elbow injury against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship game: he awkwardly bent his arm between Packers running back James Starks and Seahawks defensive back Kam Chancellor.

Sherman played the rest of the of the game, but it was believed the injury would require Tommy John surgery.

He also played with a brace during the Seahawks 28-24 loss to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Sherman confirmed the decisicion to skip the operation to the Associated Press on Tuesday.

Pete Carroll Denies Reports About Changing Final Play of Super Bowl

Pete Carroll Denies Reports About Changing Final Play of Super Bowl

Whitney Curtis/Getty Images(PHOENIX) -- Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll denied all reports that he changed the final goal-line play in Sunday's Super Bowl loss against the Patriots from a run play to a pass.

Carroll and the Seahawks will be seeing Malcom Butler's game-sealing interception play over and over again, until they get back to work next season.

"There was not a thought about running it, and then I changed the play," Carroll said Monday when reports said that he went with a throwing play so Marshawn Lynch wouldn't get a chance at the MVP. "That did not happen."

Carroll said that he didn't have any problem with offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell's call.

"There's no reservation in [the call], and don't make it out like there is," Carroll said Monday. "First off, Darrell is an incredible playcaller. He's done a fantastic job. We are so lucky to have him. He has been absolutely instrumental in what we have done. He is an awesome guy on our staff and crucially important to our future, as well."

"And let me say this, too," Carroll continued.  "We don't ever call a play thinking we might throw an interception.  I don't ever think that, just like [the 11-yard TD pass to Chris Matthews] with six seconds to go in the half. We go with what we know. There was not a thought in my mind that we would make a mistake on [the interception] play. It was a tremendous play by the guy on the other side."

Carroll gave credit to Butler for making the play on second down, but wouldn't second-guess himself.

"One of those downs we were likely to throw the ball and maybe two of those downs," Carroll said, "depending on how we had to save the clock to get in all of our plays. It wasn't just run the ball. That wasn't what the thought was."

Seattle has opened up as the favorite to win Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco.

Seahawks’ Kam Chancellor Listed as Probable for Super Bowl

Seahawks’ Kam Chancellor Listed as Probable for Super Bowl

NFL Media(PHOENIX) -- Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor looks like he'll be ready to go on Sunday for Super Bowl 49 after he participated in the team's walk-through practice without favoring his leg, according to the pool report.

Chancellor is listed as probable for their game against the New England Patriots.

Chancellor left Friday's practice with his left knee wrapped, but all signs point towards him making it on the field in Arizona.

"He looked pretty good today," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told Emily Kaplan, the Super Bowl pool reporter for the Pro Football Writers of America. "We will make sure we test him in pregame, but he remarkably looked great today and so that's all we have to go on."

Chancellor was drafted by Seattle in 2010 and was a member of last year's Super Bowl team.

NFL Hands out Warning to Seahawks Running Back Marshawn Lynch

NFL Hands out Warning to Seahawks Running Back Marshawn Lynch

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The NFL is tired of Seattle Seahawks' running back Marshawn Lynch's celebrations after he celebrates touchdowns.

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio is reporting that if Lynch makes an obscene after scoring or at any other time during Super Bowl XLIX, the team will be penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct.

If he does it after scoring a touchdown, the team will have to kickoff from the 20-yard line.

Lynch has been fined twice this season for grabbing his crotch, and was fined $20,000 by the NFL for making the gesture during the NFC Championship Game. He's also clashed with the league at times this season for his unwillingness to talk to the media.

ESPN also reports that that league will continue to consider fining Lynch "significantly more" than the $50,000 they have fined him in each of the past two seasons for not speaking to the media.

Lynch was fourth in the NFL in rushing this past season.

Seahawks’ Lane Doesn’t Think Gronkowski’s “That Good”

Seahawks’ Lane Doesn’t Think Gronkowski’s “That Good”

Elsa/Getty Images(RENTON, Wash.) -- Many people would probably tell you that New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is one of the main reasons the Patriots have been so successful this season, but Seattle Seahawks starting nickleback Jeremy Lane isn't one of them."I actually don't think he's that good," Lane said. "He's OK. He does have a big body. But from what I've seen on tape, he doesn't like you putting your hands on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won't catch that many balls."Gronkowski finished this season with 82 catches, 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns, but Lane believes if he hits Gronkowski at the line of scrimmage, the 6-foot-6, 265 pound All-Pro will have problems being productive."It's definitely an issue with him from watching tape," said Lane.The 24-year-old Lane has played in seven games for the Seahawks this season, compiling 23 tackles, three passes defended and one forced fumble.

Seahawks Stun Packers in OT, 28-22, Will Defend Super Bowl Title

Kevin Casey/Getty Images(SEATTLE) -- The Seattle Seahawks are headed back to defend their Super Bowl title on Feb. 1 after they came back from 19-7 down to beat the Green Bay Packers 28-22 in overtime.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw a career-high four interceptions, but pulled them within five on a rushing touchdown with 2:09 left in the game.

Following the score, Seattle went with an onside kick that Chris Matthews recovered, which set up Marshawn Lynch's 24-yard rushing touchdown with 1:25 left in the game.  Wilson would hit Luke Wilson in the end zone for the two-point conversion to take a three point lead.

Mason Crosby's 48-yard field goal with 14 seconds left tied the game up before Wilson hit Jermaine Kearse with a 35-yard touchdown pass in overtime to end the game.

Lynch rushed for 157 yards in the victory to go along with the touchdown.  Wilson finished the game with 209 yards, the rushing touchdown, and game winning pass to Kearse.

The Packers offense failed to convert on offense early in the first quarter and settled for two field goals.

Aaron Rodgers finished with two picks, a touchdown, and threw for 178 yards in the loss.

Seattle has now won nine in a row at Century Link in the postseason and are the first team to repeat as conference champions since the New England Patriots ten years ago.

Report: Seahawks Lose Rookie Richardson to ACL Injury

Report: Seahawks Lose Rookie Richardson to ACL Injury

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(SEATTLE, Wa.) -- Seattle Seahawks rookie receiver Paul Richardson is done for the rest of the post season with a torn ACL, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Richardson suffered the knee injury in Saturday's win against the Carolina Panthers.

A second round pick out of Colorado, Richardson provided a deep threat for the Seahawks passing attack. On the season, Richardson has 29 catches for 271 yards and one touchdown over 15 games. However, the promising young wide out had begun to find a role in recent weeks with the defending champs; 13 of his catches had come in the final three games. 

After the Seahawks traded Percy Harvin to the New York Jets, Richardson had taken over kickoff return duties, where he averaged 23.5 yard average over 16 run backs.

Initially head coach Pete Carroll said the injury appeared to be a knee sprain. Now, Richardson will face at least nine months of rehabilitation.

NFL Fines Lynch After Touchdown Run

NFL Fines Lynch After Touchdown Run

Christian Petersen/Getty Images

(NEW YORK) -- While many football fans were impressed by Marshawn Lynch's 79-yard touchdown run against the Arizona Cardinals; the NFL was not.

The NFL fined Lynch $11,050 for grabbing his groin as he flipped backwards into the end zone at the culmination of the impressive charge.

Many titled the latest run by Lynch as "Beast Quake 2" after his magnificent dash reminded fans of the famous moment in which he ran 67 yards and broke seven tackles in the 2011 wild card playoff game against the Saints.

Interestingly, Lynch grabbed his crotch after the 2001 run, but was not fined. This time, the NFL took notice.

ProFootballTalk first reported the fine.

Seahawks Reward Linebacker K.J. Wright with Four-Year Extension

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(RENTON, Wash.) -- The Seattle Seahawks have locked up another key member of their dominant defense. ESPN reports they've rewarded linebacker K.J. Wright with a four-year extension, worth $27 million.

Since the team drafted him in the fourth round back in 2011, Wright has emerged as a fantastic defensive player who's a key member of the team's top-ranked defense.

"In the offseason, we identified K.J. as one of our core players moving forward and aimed to keep him as a part of the Seahawks family for a long time," general manager John Schneider said in a statement. "The timing of this signing gives us the ability to keep as many of our core players together as we possibly can. Since Day 1, K.J. has been a true professional in his daily approach and we are excited for K.J., his family and the 12s to keep him in the organization."

In 14 games this season, Wright has 96 tackles, two away from tying a career-high. He has started all three linebacker spots for the team as well.

Seattle Preys On Philadelphia

Seattle Preys On Philadelphia

Kevin Casey/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA, Pa.) -- The Seattle Seahawks are peaking once again as the regular season enters its final month.

Sunday, the defending Super Bowl Champions grounded the high flying Philadelphia Eagles with a 24-14 victory.

Russell Wilson was on his game beating Philadelphia through the air and on the ground. Wilson ran for a touchdown as well as completing 22 of 37 passes for 263 yards and a pair of touchdowns to Marshawn Lynch and Doug Baldwin.

Seattle's Legion of Boom defense befuddled Mark Sanchez and the Eagles all evening. The Eagles signal caller continued his yo-yo like performance as this week he completed 10 of 20 passes for 96 yards. He also threw an interception and was sacked three times.

The Seahawks now enter a three game divisional slate to end their season.  They host a reeling 49ers team next week as part of a stretch that will likely determine the winner of the NFC West.

Seattle Stymies San Francisco

Seattle Stymies San Francisco

Steve Dykes/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO, Ca.) -- The Seattle Seahawks defeated the San Francisco 49ers 19-3 Thursday with a dominating defensive effort.

Cornerback Richard Sherman reasserted himself as he intercepted Colin Kaepernick twice and could have had a third if not for a drop.

"The second one was pretty entertaining," Sherman said. "I was laughing the whole time because I told their sideline 'if they throw it my way, I'd end the game.'" 

Quarterback Russell Wilson was efficient, completing crisp passes and methodically moving the ball against the 49ers.  He completed 15 of 22 passes for 236 yards. Wilson also completed the only touchdown of the game to running back Robert Turbin who took the ball in from 13 yards out.

The Seahawks are now 8-4 and appear to be returning to the form that led them to a championship run last season. 

"These guys have really joined together and really recaptured what it was that we played with last year," said head coach Pete Carroll. "It took us some time to figure it out, but we have.

For the second straight week the Seahawks have defeated a division opponent by the score of 19-3. They beat up on the previously 9-1 Arizona Cardinals who were under the charge of new starting quarterback Drew Stanton.

"There is no question, in the last two weeks that we have elevated our game," Carroll said.
