Seahawks GM: Marshawn Lynch leaning toward retirement

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is leaning toward retirement, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider. Schneider told ESPN Seattle on Friday that he expects the veteran runner to retire. Lynch would owe the Seahawks $5 million in bonus money if he retires. He could also be cut, since the Seahawks owe him $9 million next season. Lynch, 29, played in just seven games last season due to injuries. Lynch had gone over 1,200 yards rushing and scored at least 11 touchdowns in four straight seasons prior to last season.
