Seahawks Officially Place Marshawn Lynch on Retired List

Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch is officially retiring.

Though the running back announced his retirement in February during the Super Bowl, he's remained on the Seahawks' roster up until Thursday, when the team officially placed him on the reserve/retired list.

Since 2011, Lynch has been among the most productive running backs in the NFL, beginning with his first full season with the Seahawks, who acquired him from the Buffalo Bills in a midseason trade the year before.

During his five seasons in Seattle, Lynch finished third in rushing yards (5,774), second in first downs (294) and first in rushing touchdowns. His 51 touchdowns surpassed Adrian Peterson's second-place total by six. He also had six 100-yard playoff games, falling short to only Terrell Davis and Emmitt Smith in NFL history.

If Lynch is indeed retired, he'll finish his career with 114 career starts, 2,144 carries for 9,112 yards and 74 touchdowns (4.3 YPC).
