Back in February, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch took to Twitter to announce his retirement.

He posted an image of his cleats on telephone wire and added an emoji of a hand throwing up the peace sign. That was it. Being there was no press conference, interview or official statement, there's been speculation of whether or not he was serious.

Well, in an interview on 60 Minutes Sports, Lynch made it very clear -- he's done playing in the NFL.

"I'm done. I'm done. I enjoyed my time playing. Now it's time to watch my cousins do their thing," Lynch said in the interview. "I'm retired. Is that good enough? Which camera do you want me to look into? This one? I'm done. I'm not playing football anymore."

During the 2015 season, he missed nine regular-season games and one in the playoffs after undergoing surgery for a sports abdomen injury. Prior to the season, Lynch had missed just one game the four previous seasons.

He finishes his career with 9,112 rushing yards and 74 touchdowns (4.2 YPC).

Peace out Marshawn Lynch, we enjoying watching you play in the NFL.
