Seahawks GM says Marshawn Lynch leaning toward retirement

The epic saga of Beast Mode could be coming to a close.


Seahawks general manager John Schneider appeared on a Seattle radio show on Friday and said that he’s under the impression that running back Marshawn Lynch is leaning toward retirement. Lynch has been with the Seahawks since 2010 and has been a key cog in the offense ever since.

Lynch signed a two-year contract extension worth $24 million before the 2015 started, however the veteran missed several games due to sports hernia surgery. He returned for the Seahawks’ NFC divisional playoff loss to the Carolina Panthers last Sunday.
