Part of Amazon’s pregame shows has featured former Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch making an appearance in each city. Lynch has been part of Amazon’s “Thursday Night Football” crew since Week 6 of the season.
Rodgers sported a Lynch No. 24 Seahawks jersey when he met up with his former California teammate this week for a promotional video for last Thursday’s game. The two sat in the Lambeau Field stands.
During that interview, Rodgers made his plea to Lynch to come play for the Packers.
“You coming back? Exchange this to green and gold. Need to hand that 24 power off one more time.”
“I’d have to start working out right now.”

“Yeah, right. You weigh less than when you came back with Seattle that one year.”
Lynch said in the conversation he wishes he and Rodgers could have joined forces in the NFL.
“I would have loved to play with you in the league,” Lynch said. “With all that snow (in Buffalo), I grew to like that (expletive).”
Rodgers then chimed back: “That would have been fun. Hall of Fame backfield.”
The Packers could really use him as they sit 4-7 and trail the Minnesota Vikings by four and a half games. The Vikings lost just their second game of the campaign, but the Packers lost to the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night, so nothing changed.
Per FiveThirtyEight’s projections model, the Packers have a 6% chance of making the playoffs, which is shockingly lower than the Detroit Lions, who are 4-6. It hasn’t helped that Rodgers is having his worst season since 2008, his first as the Packers’ full-time starter.
Rodgers will turn 39 years old on December 2nd and is slated to play even more years after the Packers signed him to an extension last offseason.
The 36-year-old Lynch first retired after the 2015 season, sat out the 2016 season before returning for two years with the Raiders. He then signed with the Seahawks again for one game in the 2019 season finale. He hasn’t played in the league since.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
