Lynch returns to Seattle after losing almost 500k in fines

Marshawn Lynch is in the third year of a four-year, $30 million deal with the Seahawks. He received $6 million of it in a signing bonus. Lynch will make $5 million in base salary this season and $5.5 million in 2015, but he wanted more money up front or more money guaranteed.

Lynch showed up for minicamp in June to avoid a hefty fine, but made a stand with the start of training camp. He is subject to a $30,000 fine for each day of camp he misses. Lynch has accumulated nearly $500,000 in team fines for his holdout through Thursday, but it is unclear if the Seahawks will collect the fines or waive them.
