“Beast Mode” has left a huge impact on the NFL throughout his 11-year career. Whether or not Marshawn Lynch plays again in 2019 is up in the air, but he could still be a quality running back for most NFL teams.
After retiring following the 2015 season, Lynch came out of retirement in 2017 to play for his hometown Oakland Raiders. In his first year back Lynch had 207 carries for 891 yards and seven touchdowns. Lynch also had 20 receptions for 151 yards that year. In the 2018 season, Lynch started each of the first six games before suffering a season-ending groin injury. In those six games, Lynch had 90 carries for 376 yards and three touchdowns.
Lynch spent the first three and a half years of his career with the Buffalo Bills, where he was a Pro-Bowler in 2008. Lynch’s time in Seattle is what he will be most remembered for, as he made four consecutive Pro-Bowls from 2011-2014 along with a first-team All-Pro in 2012 and second-team All-Pro in 2014. In “Beast Mode’s” time with the Seahawks, he had 1,457 rushes for 6,347 yards and 57 touchdowns.
