Marshawn Lynch Suited Up To Play For Fan Controlled Football League Team, Then Changed His Mind On Playing
Marshawn Lynch had a very eventful Saturday night.
A new football league kicked off its season, Fan Controlled Football, a league that has a three-week regular season in a bubble in Georgia. Richard Sherman, Quavo, and Mike Tyson are among its owners, while Johnny Manziel is a QB for the Zappers.
Lynch is one of the owners of Beasts and he turned heads with his commentary during the very first game when he talked about taking a shit.
Lynch went into the locker room and threw on his pads to play in a football game for the first time since the 2019-20 NFL season in which he played for the Seattle Seahawks.
He would soon change his mind on playing.
Via USA Today:
“…Basically he felt he was taking snaps away from the starter, so he was ready to run out and backed out like a true owner with empathy,’’ said Bryan Kirsch, communications advisor for the FCF. “We are trying to get him back on the broadcast to talk about it.’’
Maybe he will change his mind and hit the field when his team plays.
