Seahawks Players Believe Marshawn Lynch Will NOT Retire, May Just Skip Off-Season

Divisional Round - Seattle Seahawks v Carolina Panthers

If the following is true, we may not have seen the last of Marshawn Lynch in the NFL:

According to Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole, some of Beast Mode’s Seattle teammates believe that he will have second thoughts about his retirement, suggesting the Seahawks running back may try to work his way back into the league next fall after skipping most of the off-season schedule.

Lynch signed a three-year, $31-million contract last offseason, although both parties knew that there was a good possibility that he would retire after the first year of the contract.  Should Lynch stay retired, the Seahawks could ask that he pays back $5-million of his signing bonus.  While it is believed that they likely won’t pursue the unearned money, if Lynch does decide to return with another team next season, it could make for an interesting (and somewhat sticky) situation.

As for Lynch’s possible destinations next season (should he return), Seattle remains a possibility; however, it is believed that they will “tread lightly on Lynch”–no surprise, considering how good rookie running back Thomas Rawls looked when called upon last season.
