Report: Marshawn Lynch has agreed to new, 3-year contract worth $12M guaranteed in 2015 to return to Seahawks; TE Zach Miller released

UPDATE: Here’s what I know as of late this afternoon on Marshawn Lynch:

The Seahawks are still in the same status they’ve been since after the Super Bowl Feb. 1, waiting to get word from Lynch on whether he will agree to a new contract to play in 2015. He was en route from his hometown of Oakland to SeaTac airport on a Southwest Airlines commercial flight accompanied by his agent Doug Hendrickson, headed to team headquarters in Renton; and Lynch at team headquarters in the offseason is more rare than him talking to he media, so we can all

The Seahawks got back early last night from what coach Pete Carroll today called “a real disappointing trip” to St. Louis. The 28-26 loss in which Seattle fell behind 21-3 in the second quarter leaves the Seahawks 3-3 and in third place in the NFC West. They are a game behind San Francisco and two behind Arizona, each of which they’ve yet to play.
