Last week, the Seattle Seahawks dealt wide receiver Percy Harvin to the New York Jets. Now, running back Marshawn Lynch could be the next to go.

According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the team has “grown tired” of Lynch’s ways, and he’s not expected to be back with the team next season.

There has been speculation that Lynch threw a fit after the team traded Harvin away. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is also reporting that Lynch has limited contact with the coaching staff.

Lynch will be 29-years-old in April 2015. If the team cuts him in the off-season, they will save $7 million of the $8.5 million salary he has for 2015.

This is his fifth season with the Seahawks after a trade from the Buffalo Bills in 2010. He wore out his welcome with the Bills, which resulted in the trade.

With this happening again, teams will be leery of picking him up when he does become available.
