Marshawn Lynch has officially decided not to retire from the NFL and he will be suited up yet again next year in a Seattle Seahawks uniform.
Lynch has become arguably the most dominant back in the NFL after several stellar seasons with the Seahawks. Known for his powerful running style and no nonsense approach, Lynch has been contemplating retirement ever since the Seahawks' dramatic Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots last month.
But according to multiple reports on Friday, Lynch has come to an agreement with the Seattle Seahawks and has decided against retirement from football.
Lynch leads the NFL in rushing touchdowns with 54 since joining the Seahawks in 2010, and Seattle fans will be glad to see Beast Mode back in action next season after fears he would retire at the premature age of 28.
It's certainly been an interesting few months for Lynch. Without being the most vocal NFL player in the media, Lynch has arguably courted the most attention for his bizarre approach in interview with his constant one-liners such as "I'm only here so I won't get fined."
But even more bizarre for Lynch was the fact that he wasn't given the ball at the one yard line late in the Super Bowl against the Pats with the Vince Lombardi Trophy within Seattle's grasp for the second consecutive season.
As we all know by now, Seattle decided to pass the ball and the rest is history. In the meantime, Lynch's decision to return gives the Seahawks the best chance to return to the Super Bowl next season and attempt to right the wrongs of Super XLIX.
