RENTON - Marshawn Lynch has officially reported for training camp.

Lynch, 28, ended his holdout a week after the rest of his teammates reported for camp last Thursday.

Mike Garafolo of FOXSports.com snapped a photo (below) of Lynch walking out of the back entrance of the VMAC at approximately 2:15 p.m. Moments earlier, a massive cheer came echoing out of the auditorium where the team was holding a meeting.

Coincidentally, (OK, maybe not) a Brinks truck pulled up the front door of the Seahawks headquarters moments later.

Lynch was holding out in hopes of getting an increased contract from the Seahawks. However, he was also racked up a significant portion of fines for not showing up.

Lynch's fines had reached at least $450,000 after missing the first seven days of camp. He had been placed on the team's "reserve/did not report" list and currently does not count against their 90-man roster. Once he passes a physical and all other duties required upon reporting, the team will need to clear a roster space for him by releasing a player.

According to Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan of ESPN.com, Lynch will not get any new money from the team but is expected to get "some financial concessions."

The report does not specify what those conditions are. However, the team may have guaranteed some additional money or converted some bonuses into guaranteed money.

Lynch was scheduled to make $5 million in base salary this season with $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses.
