It’s no secret that Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch has heavily considered retiring. Sure, he’s an awesome running back on one of the best teams on the planet, but Lynch has always marched to the beat of his own drum, which has earned him the title of one of the league’s most unconventional players.
Apparently, Lynch is not just considering retirement, anymore. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, those close to Lynch have been made aware that he plans on ending his career.
In a way, this is a surprise, because Lynch is only 29 years old and – despite having a down year – is one of the best power backs in the league. He suffered from some nagging injuries that limited him in 2015, but with an offseason to rest, there’s no reason to think that Lynch wouldn’t be able to bounce back in 2016.
