Seahawks RB Lynch may consider retirement

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch @MoneyLynch told two teammates last season that if the team won the Super Bowl, he would consider retirement.

When asked to confirm whether or not it is really possible, a source told Rapoport, "I could see him walking away." Marshawn Lynch is coming off three straight seasons with at least 1,200 rushing yards and 11 scores. He just turned 28 years old in April.

Fantasy Analysis:

This would be a big deal for both the NFL and fantasy football. One of the better backs of the last few years. He's on a popular, successful team. Lynch still has one or two good years left in the tank barring injury. It has been done before though. Guys like Barry Sanders, Robert Smith and more recently, Rashard Mendenhall all walked away from the game on their own terms. Lynch is scheduled to earn $10.5 million over the next two seasons with millions on the table in bonus money. If Lynch is no longer 'bout that action, the hype for RB Christine Michael @Cmike33 will be off the charts until Week 1.
