RENTON, Wash. Joel Armia Canadiens Jersey . -- Marshawn Lynch isnt expected to be present for the first day of the Seattle Seahawks training camp, close friend and former teammate Michael Robinson said Thursday. Appearing on NFL Network, Robinson said he spoke with Lynch and Seattles star running back plans to hold out of the camp that begins Friday. "I really think he just wants his position in the organization and how they view him, he just wants that recalibrated a little bit," Robinson said on NFL Network. "Hes been the face of the franchise, hes been the face of the organization." At dispute is Lynchs contract. Lynch can make up to $5.5 million this season in base pay and roster bonuses. Its the third year of a four-year contract Lynch signed with Seattle before the 2012 season. Lynch nearly skipped Junes mandatory minicamp because he wants the final two years of his contract reworked. He ultimately showed to avoid a hefty fine, but did not participate with what coach Pete Carroll said was an ankle issue. Lynch was not present for Seattles organized team activities during the off-season. Seattles plan is to make sure Lynch is healthy for the season opener against Green Bay on Sept. 4, which would mean a very light load of carries during training camp and the preseason. Even though the Seahawks staff expressed during the off-season getting more carries for reserves Robert Turbin and Christine Michael, Carroll reiterated during minicamp that Seattles run game begins with Lynch. "We have rested him a lot in the off-season. He takes a big pounding during the year. It takes him a long time to get his body back to where he doesnt feel the rigours of the season thats past," Carroll said in June. "In this case its unique but he is a unique player and he has a unique role on our football team, so we have to do what we have to do to take care of him." Robinson said he believes that Lynch will eventually play this season. "I think Marshawn will be playing football this year. I dont know how theyre going to get it done, I dont know how theyre going to make it work but that team is not the championship team that they can be without Beast Mode," Robinson said. Lynch can be fined for missing training camp and hes shown the past being adverse to losing money via fines. Last season, Lynch begrudgingly began speaking to the media during the playoffs in an effort to avoid hefty financial penalties from the league. That included memorable sessions during Super Bowl week where he answered questions for about 20 combined minutes during three days of league-mandated media availability. Dickie Moore Jersey .
