The announcement by Marshawn Lynch that he was retiring from football saddened his fans. Despite having a personality full of controversies, Lynch caught many people unaware. Few would have thought that the Seattle Seahawks top star would quit so quickly.
Lynch was not at his best in 2015. With injuries bogging him down, he only made seven appearances. For a sportsman, this would only serve to bring down his ratings. All the same, football fans hoped that he would resume in 2016.
Despite stating that he was not coming back to the game, his close friends believe that he was considering rescinding his decision. At 30 years of age, the athlete still has got some passion for playing in the NFL.
As a result of his former team owning his player rights, Lynch still has room for a comeback. While the Seahawks have two running backs on the team, they are largely unknown. However, refusal by the Hawks to accept him back would come as no surprise. Although Marshawn has had conflicts with the Hawk’s management, they nonetheless allowed fielded him.
It would be uncharacteristic of Lynch to backtrack on a decision he has made. Fans will be right in assuming that the NFL star is gone for good. On the other hand, there could only be a few people who may dislike his style on and off the field.
To sum up, opponents will be relieved that the Seahawks star will not be terrorizing their defenses again. It is natural for players and fans to have such a feeling since everyone wants his or her team to shine. However, apart from these emotions, most football lovers would love to have their star back in the game.
