RB Lynch Has No Idea If He Will be With the Seahawks in 2015

Seattle Seahawks v Kansas City Chiefs

Marshawn Lynch didn’t make himself available in the locker room to reporters after the Seahawks’ loss to the Chiefs, possibly setting himself up for a six-figure fine, but he wasn’t completely silent Sunday afternoon, Terry Blount of ESPN.com reports.

On the team’s bus outside Arrowhead Stadium, the running back talked to NFL.com in a telephone interview about his future with the Seahawks and the team’s current fortune.

Lynch isn’t expected to be with the Seahawks in 2015, sources have told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and other media outlets. Asked if he thought he’ll be back in Seattle next season, Lynch said he wasn’t sure, but said all the talk is coming from the organization and not himself.

“Do I think I’ll be gone after this season? “I don’t know, man. The Seahawks, their front office gets in the media; they talk a lot. I don’t talk too much. I just play the game,” he told the website.

“If they have something going on, I don’t know about it.”

Asked about reported friction between himself and coach Pete Carroll and an NFL Network report that Lynch “does not communicate” with the coach, the player said:

“Pete’s my head coach. Well, I mean, you know, he’s really not in my position meetings. … It ain’t like we get to chop it up like that,” he told the website.

Lynch didn’t accompany his teammates to the locker room during halftime Sunday, staying on the bench until the third quarter began.

“He thought it would be better for him to stay out,” Carroll said, not elaborating on why Lynch would think that was advantageous in such harsh weather conditions.

Lynch told NFL Network that he stayed on the bench because he couldn’t walk due to fatigue.
