Seattle Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch has one year left in his contract, but apparently, he’s not sure he wants to continue playing.
Former Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson recently told ESPN that he spoke with the the 28-year-old, who he says is contemplating retirement.
“My bet would be that he plays next year in Seattle,” Robinson said. “I don’t think Marshawn knows yet. I don’t know what the timeline is. It’s probably going to be a feel thing and we’ll just see like everybody else.
“Marshawn is getting to a point in his life where he may want to enjoy other things that are important to him,” he continued.
Robinson goes on to say that he doesn’t think Lynch’s decision is about money, although the Seahawks have said they will extend his contract.
“I don’t think it factors in too much,” Robinson said, “but obviously this is a business. With the running back position being so devalued, I think he wants to be paid like the heartbeat of the team, which he should be.
“He knows that he has the leverage. He knows that he’s the best back in the league. He knows he’s a difference maker not only on the field but off the field.”
