On a day when T.O. finally came in for voluntary workouts, Marshawn Lynch received news that he’ll be sitting out to start the regular season.
Michael Smith of ESPN.com is reporting that Lynch has been suspended three games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.
Lynch, who will lose approximately $112,000 of his $635,000 base salary for 2009 during the suspension, is likely to appeal.
Can’t say that the suspension is a surprise by any means. With Commissioner Roger Goodell, if you don’t behave off the field, you’ll have a tough time getting back on it.
The suspension also give back up running back Fred Jackson a little more leverage as he holds out of voluntary workouts in search of a more lucrative multi-year deal with the team.
