Marshawn Lynch has been around helping people left and right since his retirement from the NFL. From building homes and schools in Haiti to riding camels in Egypt, Lynch doesn’t seem to be missing the NFL, and even though last season he didn’t seem interested in the game, his close friend, Richard Sherman, doesn’t think Lynch is completely done. Sherman, speaking at a youth camp, gives us his thoughts on the return of Lynch via NFL.com,
“I don’t put anything past him,” Sherman said at Robinson’s youth football camp in Mechanicsville, Virginia, on Saturday. “He’s about as predictable as a pair of dice. So I don’t try to call his plays.”
“But it’s obviously going to be different. We got a little sample of it last year,” Sherman continued. “We had to play without him for a good portion of the season. I think we’re prepared for it in some aspects. But you never really want to be prepared for that. You would hope that he comes back. In the back of your mind, you hope he comes back and plays another year. But he doesn’t owe us anything. He’s given us everything. He’s given the game everything we asked.”
He’s given the game everything we asked. All you can ask from a player and teammate. There are countless reports of Marshawn going beyond the field to help his teammates from helping them with their 401k plans to being one of the most positive players on the field. Who wouldn’t want him to come back? Lynch hasn’t hinted at coming back so far now we can hang loosely on Sherman’s word and hopes he pulls a fast one and brings “Beast Mode” back to Sunday’s.
