Seattle fullback Michael Robinson told the NFL Network on Thursday that Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch plans to hold out and not participate in the opening day of training camp Friday. Per ESPN
Robinson is one of Lynch's closest friends and has been advising him on his contract concerns.
Sources also confirmed Lynch's plan to ESPN.com.
Lynch wants his contract renegotiated with more money up front this season. He is starting the third year of a four-year deal that pays him $30 million. Lynch has a base salary of $5 million this season and $5.5 million in 2015, but he will count $7 million against the salary cap this year and $9 million next year.
Lynch did not attend any of the voluntary organized team activities in the offseason.
