While Marshawn Lynch is out doing literally anything he wants while enjoying retirement, it seems that the thought of coming back for the 2016 NFL season is still fresh in the mind of the former Seattle Seahawks running back. According to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report, Lynch told two of his teammates that he’s contemplating returning this year.
While Lynch dealt with injuries for much of the 2015 season, leading to him rushing for career lows in yards with 417 and touchdowns with three, this isn’t the first that we’ve heard of a potential return for Lynch.
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had the following to say when speaking about Lynch’s future, via NFL.com’s Conor Orr:
“I don’t put anything past him,” Sherman said at Robinson’s youth football camp in Mechanicsville, Virginia, on Saturday. “He’s about as predictable as a pair of dice. So I don’t try to call his plays.”
While it may seem unlikely, I’m going to side with Sherman here and just play the wait-and-see game about Lynch’s future. If he does return, the question then becomes, will it be with the Seahawks?
