*Marshawn Lynch came to the Seattle Seahawks during the team’s makeover in 2010 — becoming a superstar running back.
According to Seattle general manager John Schneider, ”I kind of love his act.”
But there’s a possibility there will be no more “Beast Mode,” Skittles or ducking and dodging the media if the Super Bowl game is Lynch’s last game with Seattle, according to Yahoo Sports.
Technically he has one more year left in his contract, but it’s up to him and the Seahawks if he’ll be playing out his finale next year or if he’s already done.
But if he returned for the final year it will cost Seattle $8.5 million against the salary cap. But his contract could be restructured.
If anything is for sure, folks are standing by that this is his best season yet and his teammates are praising him for the great player he is.
”He’s a dog. His whole demeanor,” Seattle safety Earl Thomas said. ”He’s a man (among) boys out there.”
”The thing that he brings to our offense is his versatility,” quarterback Russell Wilson added. ”People underestimate I think his ability to catch the football, his ability to block, his ability to run after contact. Just what he does in the backfield I mean I don’t think there’s another football player like him in terms of the running back position.”
Nevertheless Lynch will be 30 years old in 2015, and there has been only 18 running backs to rush more than 1,300 yards in a season after 29.
