Marshawn Lynch is comfortable getting naked

Marshawn Lynch AP

Even while naked, Marshawn Lynch is about that action.

The Seahawks running back posed sans clothes for an ESPN Magazine photo shoot, and even when given the chance to talk about something unusual, he didn’t have much to say.

“I got to show some love for the fat backs,” Lynch said. “Don’t matter if we don’t get love, as long as I give mine. . . .

“Even though I get butt-a– naked, I’m still gonna let my body do the talking for me. I’m cool with my body, I love my body. I wouldn’t trade it for no other body.”

Lynch also discussed how he learned to do backflips (by landing on his head), and said he had other athletic talents.

“Michael Phelps wouldn’t have been on the Wheaties box if I stuck with swimming,” he said. “I’ve been swimming since I was a little kid. I still swim. I’m the best. I am Olympic caliber right now, hell yeah.”

The idea of Beast Mode in the pool is an entertaining image, but it’s hard to imagine Lynch trading his Skittles for a healthy breakfast cereal.

    If chad johnson and lynch swam instead of play football, I would be watching swimming when it wasn’t the Olympics

    This guy is priceless in the quote department. I love it.

    Probably best to just continue to avoid the media.

  8. spyder9669 says: Jul 3, 2014 9:05 AM

    What are you talking about that’s the most he has ever said in his entire life!

    Who do they expect to buy this magazine?

    Seattle Seahawks #12 jersey retired on behalf of the avid fans, December 1984…that’s 30 years ago for the mentally challenged (niners816).

  14. reesesteel23 says: Jul 3, 2014 9:43 AM

    One of a kind? What the heck did he do? He answered a couple questions. lol

  15. osiris33 says: Jul 3, 2014 9:57 AM

    Has it really reached the point where the fans who’s stadium was empty every time I visited there are now calling Seahawks fans bandwagoners? Seriously that’s the best you can do?

    ” Who’s got better than us?”

    The Seahawks! They’re world champions!

    Another seattle seahawks player who talks too much.

    Shocker.

    “Another seattle seahawks player who talks too much.

    Shocker.”

    Lynch might be the quietest player in the NFL. Ususally the media has to drag words out of him. When he does talk, though, it’s comedy gold.

    I like Beast Mode goo dude…Indeed…

  20. louiedogg16 says: Jul 3, 2014 10:12 AM

    If you can find out how to hate on Marshawn for this, then you got issues. This story is exactly why I love beast mode. He’s got swagger and he’s not afraid to make fun of himself. Ey ey ey! Stop freakin, call beacon

  21. selldannysell says: Jul 3, 2014 10:59 AM

    He talks too much.

  22. kaepknows says: Jul 3, 2014 11:29 AM

    Hmmmm wonder if Seattle fans will talk bad about Marshawn now that he did this……just like when Kaepernick did. The shoes on the other foot now….Will they wear it?

  23. kamthechancellor says: Jul 3, 2014 11:29 AM

    What is the point of this magazine issue? I don’t get it.

  24. RegisHawk says: Jul 3, 2014 1:32 PM

    “The shoe’s on the other foot now…”

    It wasn’t a shoe, it was a Dolphins hat.

    San Francisco (Santa Clara) 49er’s fan base established 2010 after both of them were let out of deep freeze where they had been hibernating.
    They are on the endangered species list and will likely disappear from sight after the 2014 football scene. A time capsule will be buried at Levi Stadium with an urn representing their remains along with another flyer containing instructions on how to be a fan.
    The time capsule will be unearthed 50 years later and the Niners will still be on a “Quest for Six”.

    Weirdo.

  28. onbucky96 says: Jul 3, 2014 4:44 PM

    We know he’s comfortable drinking and driving, running over pedestrians w/his Porsche SUV, etc.

  29. purplengold says: Jul 3, 2014 5:53 PM

    It’s rare to hear the reality with a relaxed attitude about being human from someone in the public eye. Dude should be on TV after football.

  30. mediasloppy says: Jul 3, 2014 6:07 PM

    I don’t mind players being egotistical. Just keep this thread in mind next time you rip on Adrian Peterson for thinking highly of himself too.

  31. juliusanonymous says: Jul 3, 2014 6:16 PM

    Santa Clara fanbase: RIP 1994

  32. seadawgs72 says: Jul 3, 2014 8:16 PM

    Who are these people saying “dude talks too much”? I hope those comments are being said tongue in cheek because if they actually mean it they no less about football than i know about soccer. That’s next to nothing.

  33. winninaintsinnin says: Jul 4, 2014 11:57 AM

    Santa Clara fans are a hoot.

    Seriously, how do you think you look to EVERYONE ELSE when you talk smack about other fan bases…

    When your own team felt compelled to issue instructions to you on how and when to cheer during games?

    How flipping embarrassing is that?

  34. capn0bvious says: Jul 4, 2014 3:05 PM

    To the Santa Clara 69ers fans: The Seahawks fan base has always been there. Home games have sold out consistently since forever. It’s just that now, we have something to make some noise about. It’s a shiny new Lombardi trophy. What are we supposed to do when our team wins the big one, crawl inside our little shells and stay quiet? We may have picked up some bandwagon fans, every team that wins the Super Bowl does. Truth is, that’s your only defense, because YOUR team blew it in XLVII, and then got your hearts broken in Seattle this January, there’s nothing else you can say.
