Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is hoping that running back Marshawn Lynch isn’t done yet.
The case of Marshawn Lynch’s retirement has been one of the more strange ones in the NFL. While there was no formal announcement and Lynch indeed was placed on the retired/reserved list by the Seattle Seahawks, no is really certain about what his future holds.
Certainly, it looked like Lynch was at the end of his rope last season with Seattle and missed a huge chunk of time on the year. However, he’s very unpredictable and there’s no telling what is really going on with him at times.
Even Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman can’t predict what is going to happen next with Lynch. While at former NFL fullback and teammate of Sherman’s, Michael Robinson’s football camp, Sherman was asked by the now NFL media member about if Lynch is going to stay retired.
"“I don’t put anything past him,” Sherman said at Robinson’s youth football camp in Mechanicsville, Virginia on Saturday. “He’s about as predictive as a pair of dice. So I don’t try to call his plays. But obviously, it’s going to be different. We got a little sample of it last year … I think we’re prepared for it in some aspects, but you really never want to be prepared for that. You really would hope he comes back. In the back of your mind, you hope he comes back and plays another year.”"
This is more than just a teammate saying that he would love for his teammate to come back. Anyone that has watched or seen Lynch knows that he does what he wants when he wants.
If he’s truly content on retiring, then he’s done. However, trying to guess his next move is about as logical as trying to tackle him with one individual. It just isn’t going to work out well.
For now he’s gone, but Sherman isn’t so sure about it.
