The Bay Area Legend Might Not Be Done With Football Yet
Marshawn Lynch gave football fans the blues when he announced his retirement at the end of the 2015 NFL season. Lynch had become something of a superhero, deftly denying reporters and journalists of quotes while coining popular phrases like “I’m just here so I don’t get fined.” While he’s been having a great time gallivanting on his summer trips, reports are saying he might want to lace up the cleats one more time. That’s right, Marshawn Lynch might be headed back to the NFL.
Marshawn Lynch retired in the offseason but he already is mulling a return.
Lynch is currently “up in the air” about coming out of retirement with a Week 4 or Week 5 return possible.
The Seattle Seahawks still hold Lynch’s rights since he was placed on the reserve-retired list.
If Lynch returns before the trade deadline, which comes on the Tuesday after Week Eight, Lynch would become a free agent, if released. After the trade deadline, he would pass through waivers, if the Seahawks cut him.
The Seahawks have appeared to move on from Lynch with Thomas Rawls and Christine Michael.
What do you think about Marshawn’s return to the gridiron?
