Report: Marshawn Lynch plans to retire

It was pretty clear that Seattle Seahawk running back Marshawn Lynch would not be playing in the navy and lime green in the 2016 season, but now it seems he won’t be playing on the gridiron at all. He had been contemplating retirement and it looks like he will join Calvin Johnson in retirement.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Lynch has told people close to him that he plans to retire very soon. This comes after his worst statistical season in his nine-year career.

He was limited to just 417 yards and three touchdowns on 114 carries in eight games this season. He was dealing with multiple injuries throughout the year as well.

Lynch entered the league in 2007 as a first round pick of the Buffalo Bills. He was traded to Seattle in the middle of the 2010 season.
