Marshawn Lynch Doesn’t Rule Out Return, Adds Teams Have Made Inquiries


Former Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch says he would not rule out returning to play again in 2020 for the right situation and adds he’s received some interest from teams.

“If the situation is right then it could happen,” Lynch said in an interview with Conan O’Brien. “I’ve been asked the question by a couple teams here recently. Like, ‘Are you ready?’ I’m ready if y’all are Super Bowl ready. That’s what it would take me to come out and play again. it would have to be a guaranteed Super Bowl game for me.”

The Seahawks brought Lynch back and out of retirement late last season after dealing with injuries at the running back position, so Lynch could be looking at something similar again. 

The Seahawks actually had some discussions with Lynch all the way back in May, but they are a fair bit healthier at the position currently, though they have still dealt with injuries in 2020. 

Lynch, 34, is a former first-round pick of the Bills back in 2007. He played three seasons in Buffalo before he was traded to the Seahawks.

Lynch decided to retire after six years with the Seahawks, but later came out of retirement and was traded to the Raiders. Lynch played two seasons for Oakland. He made a brief return late in the season for the Seahawks in 2019. 

In 2019, Lynch appeared in one regular-season game and rushed for 34 yards on 12 carries (2.8 YPC) and one touchdown.
