Seattle, WA, United States (4E Sports) – Running back Marshawn Lynch reported to the Seattle Seahawks camp Thursday, ending an eight-day holdout.

Lynch held out from camp to push for an improved contract.

The Seahawks will not reward Lynch with a new contract, but he will receive an additional $1 million.

Lynch will now get a base salary of $6 million instead of the initial $5 million he would earn this season.

The $1 million increase consists of a $500,000 roster bonus and a $500,000 incentive for hitting the 1,500-yard mark, according to CBS Sports.

Lynch will also receive a $500,000 bonus this year, which was slated for 2015.

The 28-year-old has been a steady and solid contributor for the Seahawks’ offense in the past three years.

Lynch rushed for 4,051 yards with 39 touchdowns on 901 carries for the Seahawks.

Robert Turbin and Christine Michael were given a lot of playing time in Lynch’s absence and were impressive.
