Twitter pic of cleats suspended from a telephone wire
NFL fans expecting high-profile retirement news Sunday evening were thrown for a loop when Marshawn Lynch upstaged Peyton Manning.
In typical taciturn Lynch style, he simply tweeted a peace emoji with a picture of his cleats suspended from a telephone wire, suggesting he's hanging them up for good. Although Lynch offered no official announcement, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per two sources informed of his plans, that the Seahawks have been informed of the 29-year-old power back's intention to retire.(NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:Speculation and rumors of Lynch retiring have been circling since the Seahawks were eliminated from the playoffs. The running back made it official(?) with a Twitter picture of cleats hanging from a wire. His departature elevates the fantasy stock of Thomas Rawls who will be in the low-end RB1 conversation in drafts this Summer.
