Lynch had a spectacular career in the NFL.
Marshawn Lynch made a name for himself as one of the best running backs in the league while he was playing for the Seattle Seahawks. Lynch eventually retired from the game a few years ago, but ultimately came back to the NFL so that he could play with the Oakland Raiders. In a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, it has been revealed that Lynch is planning to retire from the league once again, after two seasons with his hometown team.
Lynch went down with a groin injury early in the season this year which ended up ending his 2018 campaign. The running back also known as “Beast Mode,” turned 33 years old this past week and has decided that it’s time to move on with his life. Running backs tend to have fairly short primes so it’s impressive that Lynch was able to remain effective well into his 30s.
The running back has been known as a beacon of the community who is always giving back to the children and anyone in need.
After 11 seasons, Lynch finished with 10,379 rushing yards and 93 total touchdowns. Lynch began his career with the Buffalo Bills after being drafted 12th overall in 2007.
