To me that goes why farther the showing up at OTA's. Sure it would be nice if he showed up and was a bigger part of the team, but I just don't see him as that guy. Now Russell Wilson, he's that guy.
Yep, "it his what it is" and he's not likely to change giving his history. However, I'm also of the same mindset Brock Huard is. When EVERYBODY on the team shows for voluntary OTAs except ONE person, something 'doesn't smell right.' I don't care how much that player contributes. The hardest working 'noTime2Sleep' mofo shows up, as does Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman, Sidney Rice, BamBam (note, he has a big contract too), Golden Tate, BB, DB, Zack Taylor..etc. If nobody feels any one of those guys are as important to the team as Lynch, then their collective contributions certainly trump his.
The team's gonna treat him right, just as they nursed his back through the practices last season. His presence alone is what matters most at this point.
Exit soap box, stage right.
