Marshawn Lynch apparently considering NFL retirement

Published 1 Comments

We might have just seen the last of Marshawn Lynch in the NFL.

Beast Mode returned from injury for the Seattle Seahawks playoff loss to the Carolina Panthers, managing just 20 yards on six carries. And in a sudden twist, that could be the last ever stat line of his career.

This is after a big name at the Seahawks revealed that Lynch might be erring towards retirement, with 2015 being his last season in the league.

It still looks like the Seahawks will have to officially release Lynch first, however. If Lynch were to retire now he would owe Seattle a $5m bonus. Seeing as the running back will cost the 'Hawks a cool $9m against the cap next year, there's no way he stays around.

With the emergence of Thomas Rawls and Lynch's injury struggles last season, it makes sense for the Seahawks to make this decision, no matter how brutal it is for a player who has been such a huge part of what the franchise have done over the past few weeks.
