Marshawn Lynch is officially back in the NFL, as he joined the Seattle Seahawks for his first practice session on Tuesday less than 24 hours after he signed a deal to make his return to his former squad.
Nothing has changed about Lynch as he still does not like to speak to the media very much.
He showed that much on Tuesday when he had a press conference and it lasted all of 12 seconds before he dipped out.
Yeah, Beast Mode is officially back.
“When you get to add somebody like that to your team, it only helps and enhances the mentality that we already cherish anyway,” coach Pete Carroll told reporters Tuesday. “We’ll find out how he can play and how he does. It’s been a little while off, he looks great in the first couple looks at him, as far as his conditioning and all of that. His weight’s down, he’s in a really good spot.”
“He was very serious about getting ready for this opportunity,” Carroll said. “And the stroke of misfortune in some regards really opens up the door which happens at times and he’s ready to take the full opportunity at hand and see what he can do to help us.”
