Marshawn’s mom doesn’t know what he’s going to do

On Friday, Seahawks G.M. John Schneider said he believes running back Marshawn Lynch is leaning toward retirement. Marshawn has remained characteristically silent on the issue. His mother hasn’t.

Delisa Lynch told both KING 5 and Twitter that she doesn’t know what Marshawn is going to do, refuting a report from TMZ that Delisa Lynch said she believes Marshawn will play.

Still not 30, Marshawn has mused about retirement for a couple of years. On past occasions, the Seahawks tried to persuade him to return, with a sweetening of the pot helping to get it done. This year, the Seahawks presumably want to unsweeten the pot, dumping his $11.5 million cap number and avoiding a $9 million base salary.

    I have a feeling he’ll need as much money as possible.

    Of course not

    Seattle doesn’t have the cap space t overpay players. Lynch can still play in Seattle, but he will have to do it for a quarter of what he is signed for.

    Jerry will pay the man

    Lynch doing his annual Farve indecision thing again, until someone offers more money if course.

    Money is a good reason to play. Getting beat up is not. Now that he’s won a superbowl what else is there to do?

    He’s not going to retire. He just wants the attention

    I’m a huge fan of Lynch, but I really do hope the Hawks trade him, preferably to Oakland. It’s a win-win for the Hawks and for Lynch. Trade him while he still has some value, save some room against the cap, and Lynch gets to play his career out in his hometown. We love Beast Mode in Seattle…enough to let him go.

    Marshawn has remained characteristically silent on the issue. His mother, characteristically, hasn’t.

    There – fixed it for you.

    Everyone knows Lynch is going to wait for the Seahawks to cut him and Marshawn is going to try and sign for a year or two with the Raiders. He doesn’t want to play in Seattle anymore and has always wanted to play for his hometown Raiders.

    If the Raiders don’t sign him he will retire and focus on his Fam 1st Foundation with Josh Johnson

    Marshawn would be perfect 3rd down back, good receiver, excellent pass blocker, still awesome threat to run, perfect for no huddle up tempo. And the cost is effectively $6.5m. I’d bring him back, those skills are worth it!

    Guess he doesn’t talk to his mom either.

  19. arnoldziffel says: Jan 24, 2016 1:49 PM

    Don’t look for any comments to come from the Beast, even if he wants to retire.

    All he has to do is sit tight and say nothing … if Seattle doesn’t want to pay him the big salary, he’ll become a cap casualty. And that’s not so bad, because then he won’t owe them anything.

    If he outright retires .. he’ll have to pay back a few million of his bonus money, and I don’t think he’ll be inclined to do that.

    One thing’s for sure – I wouldn’t be leaving any $20 bills laying out when he’s around

  21. greenlargo says: Jan 25, 2016 8:59 AM

    He and his agent probably talked to Mom and pointed out that she was undercutting his bargaining position. Plus his bargaining position is only maybe half a bluff. He probably does want to play, but retirement is certainly not off the table if he can’t get a situation that suits him.

    I like for the Seahawks to play hardball, this has become a distraction for the team. And us!

  23. josch0001 says: Jan 25, 2016 11:48 AM

    I don’t make any decision without running it by Mrs. Lynch. Marshawn shouldn’t either
