Marshawn Lynch was the 12th pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. He signed a modest five-year deal worth $19 million with the Buffalo Bills at the time. Lynch saw around $14 million of that contract before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks midway through the 2010 season.

In his first ever playoff game on January 8, 2011, Lynch reeled off a dominant 67-yard touchdown run in which he broke nine tackles. The run quickly earned the nickname “Beast Quake” and marked the start of Lynch’s incredible mid-career resurgence.

Prior to the 2012 season, Lynch signed a four-year, $31 million deal with the Seahawks. The contract included a $6 million signing bonus and averaged $7.5 million per year. His base salaries of $4 million in 2012 and $7 million in 2013 were fully guaranteed. His base salary in 2014 was $5 million and $5.5 million in 2015, which also came with a $500,000 roster bonus in 2014 and a $2 million roster bonus in 2015.

However, Lynch quickly outperformed his contract and a new deal was struck in March of 2015. This new contract gave Lynch $12 million in its first year. Lynch retired following the 2015-2016 season with a career earnings of $49.7 million.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported in March 2016 that, “Marshawn Lynch has a lot of money. He hasn’t spent a dime of his actual playing money…ever.”
