Marshawn Lynch Contract: Signed Through 2012 And Cheap

At 24, Marshawn Lynch still has his peak years ahead of him. The good news for the Seahawks is that Lynch is signed through the 2012 season and comes at a cheap price.

950 KJR's Curtis Crabtree posted Lynch's contract details on Twitter.

Marshawn Lynch's contract runs through the 2012 season. Set to make $885K in 2010 and $1.14 million in base salary in 2011 & 2012. #Seahawksless than a minute ago via TweetDeck

Not a bad price for a back that's shown flashes of greatness, albeit inconsistently, over the course of his short career. The Seahawks didn't give up much to get him -- only a fourth round and conditional draft pick -- and aren't on the hook for a huge contract. Sure sounds like a win-win for the Hawks.

Edit: FoxSports.com's Adam Caplan is reporting his contract will void after the 2011 season (via Pro Football Talk).
