Seattle Seahawks are still reeling from their dramatic Super Bowl XLIX defeat against the New England Patriots at the start of this month, but if you think that's bad then things could be about to get even worse for fans in the Pacific Northwest.

Marshawn Lynch's future with the Seahawks has been one of the biggest talking points in the NFL in the last several months.

Though the star running back still has one year left on his deal with Seattle, the powerful runner is undecided about his future and reports have suggested that he may retire this offseason.

What's going on with Lynch?

Seattle certainly want Lynch to return in 2015 and have offered him a $10 million a deal - doubling his salary - to try and entice him to come back.

But the latest news on his situation is not good, with former Seahawks star full back and now NFL Media presenter Michael Robinson revealing today that nobody in Seattle knows what Lynch is going to do.

"I don't know exactly what Marshawn is thinking," NFL Media's Michael Robinson, a former teammate and close friend of Lynch's, said on Wednesday's Total Access.

"I don't think anyone knows exactly what he's thinking. But what I do know is that the guys in that locker room mean the world to him. What I do know is that he's the best running back in National Football League. And what I also know is he is under contract next year."

The fact of the matter is the longer this saga goes on the worse it is for Seahawks fans. It's different to last season when Lynch was simply holding out for a better contract.

Over last the last twelve months it's clear that Lynch has become disillusioned with football and the longer personnel at the Seahawks have no idea what he's doing the worse that is for Seattle fans. 

Lynch to go back to Oakland 

Furthermore, Robinson speculated that Lynch may simply retire and spend his time working with kids in the Oakland community.

"I cannot sit here 100 percent and say he will retire. We talk about him saying 'I'm about that action.' It's not just about football," added Robinson.

"Go to that Oakland community go to the kids that he's servicing. Talk to those kids that he's servicing. Talk to those kids. That's what's really important to him. This is a man of principle. He's a very private guy. When he sets his mind to something, that's what he believes in."

So Seahawks fans what do you want Marshawn Lynch to do? Is he worth the $10 million a year deal he has been offered? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
