Lynch agreed to his new deal Friday after meeting with Seahawks officials. Hendrickson said the deal adds two more years to Lynch's existing contract that went through the 2015 season, but gives him a significant pay increase for next season. Lynch is coming off arguably the best season of his career. He scored a career-high 17 total touchdowns, including 13 rushing. He rushed for 1,306 yards in the regular season and added another 318 yards in three postseason games.
Lynch is expected to make $7 million in 2015. But he's been trying to get a long-term deal and is now contemplating retirement. On Thursday, general manager John Schneider said he wouldn't be "shocked" if Lynch did retire. Lynch has been Seattle's offensive workhorse over the past five years. With the 28-year-old running back, the Seahawks have won back-to-back NFC championships and the Super Bowl following the 2013 season.
