Marshawn Lynch Says He’s Open To Returning If A Super Bowl Contender Comes Calling

By Ari Meirov

Marshawn Lynch made his NFL return last season in Week 17 for the Seattle Seahawks.

It sounds like he’d be open to making a similar return this year.

Lynch said on the Conan O’Brien Show that teams have checked in on his availability, and he would sign with a team if he thought they could make the Super Bowl.

“If the situation is right then it could happen,” Lynch said. “I’ve been asked the question by a couple teams here recently. Like, ‘Are you ready?’ I’m ready if y’all are Super Bowl ready. That’s what it would take me to come out and play again. It would have to be a guaranteed Super Bowl game for me.”

There aren’t many playoff contending teams that need a running back at the moment.

The Raiders are dealing with a Josh Jacobs ankle injury but it doesn’t sound too serious. The Seahawks just got Chris Carson back from injury and also designated Rashaad Penny (knee) to return from the PUP list.

Lynch played in both of Seattle’s playoff games last season and had three touchdowns.

He said before the season that he had discussions with them about a potential reunion for the 2020 season:

“We’ll see what happens. If it works out and I get back up there, it is what it is. If not, sh*t, I’m looking good. I ain’t really trippin too much.”
