Marshawn Lynch retired from the NFL in the most Marshawn Lynch type a way: a tweet during the Super Bowl. Speculation had mounted for quite some time, and he made it official that he was hanging it up.

But nearly four months later, has he had a change of heart? It surely sounds like it. But it’s worth noting that the Seahawks probably wouldn’t even have any interest in him at this point. They’ve gone younger at the running back position and if Lynch were to return, he’d most likely be mired in a time share with Thomas Rawls.
According to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report, the former Seattle Seahawks star running back has told two ex-teammates that he’s still thinking about coming back for 2016. According to the report, Lynch’s agent believes that his client will not play in 2016.
Earlier this week, Richard Sherman said he wasn’t totally convinced that we’ve seen the last of Lynch on an NFL field.
