While everyone was expecting Peyton Manning to make retirement headlines following his victory at Super Bowl 50, it was Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch who stole the headlines.
“Beast Mode” took to twitter Sunday night where he simply tweeted a peace emoji and a picture of his cleats suspended from a telephone wire.
Although Lynch made no official statement on the matter, his agent and Seahawks owner Paul Allen acknowledged his departure from the game on Monday.
Lynch won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks 3 years ago when the squad demolished this year’s Super Bowl champion the Denver Broncos.
Lynch will go down in history as one of the toughest and most durable backs in NFL history.
During his nine-year NFL career, Lynch accumulated 9,112 yards rushing to go along with 74 touchdown scores.
