Marshawn Lynch shows up in Seahawks locker room and drops a classic one-liner


Retired Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is one of the greatest figures in recent NFL history, beloved by teammates, misunderstood by many, reviled by cranky media members (“I’m just here so I won’t get fined.”) When he does speak publicly, it's usually pretty great.

Lynch proved that again on Tuesday when he showed up in Seattle's locker room as a guest, decked out in Seahawks gear head to toe when The News Tribune's Gregg Bell spotted him. Bell writes:

I asked the 30-year-old retired running back as he walked through the expansive locker room during Tuesday’s team meeting day how he’s been.

“Smooth,” Lynch said, with a cool nod.

That’s more than he said one-on-one to me in five years when he played for the team.

We miss you, Marshawn.

So do the Seahawks, who would jump at the opportunity to have him back — at running back, offensive guard, director of smooth, anything.
