Over the past few years, Marshawn Lynch has made a name for himself as the tough guy of the NFL. I think people only see what he did on the field, but nobody realized what he did outside of the community, things he did from his camp to the schools that he is building and just giving back so much.
To date, Seattle Seahawks star Marshawn Lynch has earned $49.7 million throughout his nine-season play in the NFL.
Lynch tweeted only a picture of football cleats hanging from a wire, along with a "deuces" emoji during Super Bowl 50. The Seahawks official Twitter account later added the hashtag (hash)ThankYouBeastMode to Lynch's original message. Carroll said on January 18 the team would like to bring back Christine Michael, their former second-round draft choice. His fierce, determined running style became the heartbeat of the Seahawks' offense, helping the club qualify for two Super Bowls and winning the title in franchise history two years ago.
Rumblings again began that Lynch might hang it up, but he then signed a three-year extension with the team that paid him $12 million in 2015.
Lynch, 29, played just seven regular-season games and in one of the Seahawks' two playoff games this season because of hamstring and calf issues as well as an abdominal injury. "It was an honor sharing the field with you", said Sherman.
With the Seahawks leading the defending Super Bowl champions, the New Orleans Saints, during the 2010 NFC Wild Card game, Lynch had his most memorable run of his career.
Replacing Lynch will likely come in the form of Thomas Rawls, who thrived while filling in for Lynch until a broken ankle ended his season in mid-December. "If you put a gun to my head I would say he Error! Hyperlink reference not valid.". Although Lynch's teammates are making an extra effort to convince him to return next season, he already told the Seahawks that he intends to call it a day. "I would expect him to walk away after that". Lynch can now "taste the rainbow" in retirement after a very successful, and sometimes controversial, career.
In his nine years with the NFL, Lynch gained 9,112 yards and notched a niche for probably breaking just as many tackles in the process.
