Marshawn Lynch's Contract Details.

How does Marshawn Lynch's contract affect the Bengals you might be wondering? Consider the free agency market bar will be set by contracts of the top paid players in those positions for the upcoming season. Lynch landed a 31 million dollar 4 year deal with the Seahawks. 1200 yards and 12 TDs in 2011, gets you a 5.5 million cap number for 2012. His cap numbers for 2013 are 8.5 million. While 2014 is 7 million. Followed by 2015 at 9 million.

Running Backs such as Ray Rice and Matt Forte will command higher salaries. Comparable to Arian Foster's 45.9 million dollar deal to stay in Houston for 5 more years.

The question Bengals fans have to ponder, what market values will the remaining free agent running backs demand? Are Peyton Hillis, or Mike Tolbert, or Michael Bush worth 4-6 million per season?
