ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Seattle Seahawks and Marshawn Lynch have agreed to a contract extension that will keep Seattle for another couple of seasons.

There were rumors that Lynch was going to retire after the season ended. But it appears that those rumors were false.

Lynch has been a crucial cog for the Seahawks’ offensive attack over the last four as he has rushed for 5357 yards — 1339.25 yards per season, 83.7 yards per game — in Seattle. His physical running style has played a major part defining the Seahawks attitude during their recent run of success.

UPDATE 3:17 pm 

John Clayton is reporting that is a one year contract worth $11 million for Lynch. The deal structure is a $1 million salary base, $9 million signing bonus, and a $1 million roster bonus.

The one-year deal is shorter than the reported two-year contract offer that Lynch had reportedly been offered before the NFL combine.
