Marshawn Lynch is not in the NFL anymore, but he is still strongly connected to the world of sports. On Monday, it was announced that Lynch as well as rapper Macklemore is a new minority owner of the Seattle Kraken.
“On God, I’ve been a part of a lot of things, but this is something I never would have imagined — as a young hyena I always dreamed of playing on a professional team but owning one is something special,” Lynch said in a Kraken press release. “As I look back on some of my accomplishments — I retired before I was 30 and now being an owner of a professional club at the age of 35 — I’m gonna continue to count my blessings…
“Being a part of the Seattle Kraken is something big for me it gives me another chance to get a ring after helping bring the first NFL one to the city. And if you thought I was goin somewhere, nah Seattle, I’m here! Stand up!!!!”

Lynch has had a knack for celebrating in style as he famously drove the team’s golf cart on the field during an October 2006 game against Washington.
Lynch has strong roots in Seattle. He spent seven seasons with the Seahawks, putting up the finest seasons of his career with the team. He made four Pro Bowls and one All-Pro team while in Seattle. He also helped lead the team to a Super Bowl win during the 2013 season.
