Have we seen the last of Beast Mode? Momma Lynch thinks her son isn't done playing in the NFL.
While Seahawks general manager John Schneider on Friday told local radio stations Marshawn Lynch is ‘leaning towards retirement,‘ Lynch’s mother, Delisa, has other thoughts on her son’s football career.
“I really believe we haven’t seen the last of Beast Mode,” she said. “My younger son [Davonte] will be coming out next year. I told [Marshawn] to wait for his brother.”
Davonte, also a running back, just wrapped up his junior year at New Mexico Highlands University, leading his team in rushing with 735 yards in 10 games. He’ll attempt to make an NFL roster next season, according to Delisa.
The NFL future of Marshawn, however, remains unclear. After dealing with an abdomen injury for much of the 2015 season, Lynch rushed for a career low 417 yards, while playing in just seven games.
