Marshawn Lynch Tells 60 Minutes Sports ‘I’m Retired’
SEATTLE (AP) — Marshawn Lynch is putting to rest any lingering speculation about a possible return to the NFL in an interview with "60 Minutes Sports."
In the interview that is to air Tuesday, Lynch says, "I'm retired. Is that good enough? Which camera do you want me to look into? This one? I'm done. I'm not playing football anymore."
There's been speculation throughout the offseason that Lynch was having second thoughts about his decision to retire, which he announced in a post on social media during the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl. The Seahawks placed Lynch on the reserve/retired list in May, meaning the team would retain his rights if Lynch decided to return.
The move by Seattle was a procedural step, but it was necessary to make Lynch's retirement official.
