RENTON, Wash. (AP) — So much for concern that running back Marshawn Lynch would be absent from the Seattle Seahawks minicamp.

Lynch was in attendance when the Super Bowl champions opened their mandatory three-day minicamp on Tuesday. Reports surfaced last week that Lynch might consider not attending the practices in hopes of getting a higher salary for the 2014 season. Lynch signed a four-year contract before the 2012 season. He is scheduled to make $5 million in base salary this season plus per game roster bonuses.

Lynch could have faced fines of nearly $70,000 if he had decided to skip the minicamp. He did not take part in Tuesday’s practice but was on the field watching. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Lynch has a sore ankle and likely will not participate during the three-day camp.
