The Seattle Seahawks are heading into the 2020 offseason with 19 players set to become unrestricted free agents, which should make for another busy spring and summer for Pete Carroll and John Schneider as they look to shore up the roster and contend for the number one seed in the NFC again next year.
On Christmas Eve, the Seahawks gave their fans a big present with the return of a franchise icon when they signed Marshawn Lynch off the street to come in and contribute to a running back group that was without Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny and C.J. Prosise.
Lynch more than delivered, not only with his trademark personality and brevity with the media, but with four rushing touchdowns in three games as the team’s short-yardage back.
At age 33 and after taking nearly all of 2019 off, not to mention most of 2018 and all of 2016 during his first retirement, it seems like Lynch might actually be done with his playing career.
You can never say never with Beast Mode though, and coach Carroll already hinted he might be willing to take him back if the opportunity were to arise.
It’s ultimately unlikely that we see Lynch in a Seahawks uniform in 2020, but until he closes the door on his playing career – for good this time – anything is possible.
