Marshawn Terrell Lynch (born April 22, 1986) is an American football running back who is a free agent. He was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the first round of the 2007 NFL Draft after playing college football at the University of California, Berkeley, where he became the school's second all-time career rusher.[1]

After three seasons with the Bills, Lynch was traded to the Seattle Seahawks mid-way through the 2010 season. With Seattle, he led the league in rushing touchdowns twice, made four Pro Bowls and won Super Bowl XLVIII against the Denver Broncos. After initially retiring after the 2015 season, Lynch applied for reinstatement and was traded to the Oakland Raiders in April 2017, with whom he played two seasons before effectively retiring again, despite not filing retirement paperwork with the league. In December 2019, Lynch came out of retirement a second time to join the Seattle Seahawks for a second stint with a contract only for the remaining week of the season and the postseason.[2][3] Lynch earned the nickname "Beast Mode" for his powerful running style and consistent ability to run over defenders and break tackles.[4]

Lynch grew up in Oakland, California, with three older siblings. He was raised by his mother Delisa, who once held a 200-meter track record at Oakland Technical High School, the school that Marshawn later attended. Lynch started playing youth football in Oakland at a young age.[5]

On April 28, 2007, Lynch was selected by the Buffalo Bills with the 12th overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft, the second running back taken.[54] He agreed with the Bills to a six-year, $18.935 million contract. The deal included a $3 million signing bonus and contained $10.285 million in total guarantees.[55]

Lynch entered the NFL as the starter at running back for the Bills. In his first career regular season game on September 9, he gained 90 yards on 19 carries and scored his first touchdown in a 14–15 loss to the Denver Broncos.[56] His breakout game came on November 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Lynch's success on the ground was instrumental in keeping the touted Cincinnati offense on the sidelines, as he rushed 29 times for 153 yards, including a 56-yard touchdown run. Lynch also completed a touchdown pass to tight end Robert Royal, the first touchdown pass completed by a Bills non-quarterback since running back Joe Cribbs in 1981.[57][58]

Lynch injured his ankle the following week against the Miami Dolphins and missed the next three games.[59] He returned to play on December 9 for the Bills' second game against the Miami Dolphins that season, rushing for 107 yards and fumbling for the first time in his NFL career.[60] The game marked the first time the Bills' offense produced two 100-yard rushers since 1996, as Fred Jackson also rushed for 115 yards.[61] Lynch went over the 1,000-yard rushing mark on December 23 against the New York Giants, scoring a touchdown in the 21–38 loss, which resulted in the Giants clinching a playoff berth.[62] This made Lynch the fourth Bills rookie to break the 1,000-yard mark, and the first since Greg Bell in 1984.[63] He closed out the regular season with 105 rushing yards and 22 receiving yards against the Philadelphia Eagles.[64] He finished a successful rookie season with 1,115 total rushing yards and seven touchdowns.[65] He was named to the NFL All-Rookie Team for the 2007 season.[66]

Lynch was expected to be more involved in Buffalo's passing game in 2008, his second season as a professional. The Bills' new offensive coordinator Turk Schonert had stated a number of times that he anticipated Lynch "being in on third down a lot more" this season, citing Lynch's inexperience as a reason he was not very involved in the 2007 season.[67]

2008 season

Lynch started the 2008 season with four rushing touchdowns in his first three games against the Seattle Seahawks, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Oakland Raiders.[68][69][70] He was held to a season low of 16 yards rushing in a Week 9 matchup against the New York Jets on November 2.[71] He did not break 100 yards rushing in a game until November 17 on a Monday Night Football matchup against the Cleveland Browns, when he rushed for 119. The game also marked his first receiving touchdown.[72] Two weeks later on November 30, Lynch posted a season-high 134 rushing yards against the San Francisco 49ers.[73] Lynch went over the 1,000-yard mark for the season on December 14 in a rematch against the Jets when he rushed for 127 yards.[74] He was able to stay healthy until injuring his shoulder in the second half of a Bills victory on December 21 against the Denver Broncos, during which he rushed for his eighth touchdown of the season.[75] The injury kept him out of the Bills' season finale against the New England Patriots. Lynch finished the 2008 season with 1,036 yards rushing and eight rushing touchdowns. He posted 300 receiving yards on 47 receptions, including a receiving touchdown, compared to 184 yards on 18 receptions for the 2007 season.[76] Lynch was selected to his first Pro Bowl, replacing injured Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson.[77] This made him the first Bills running back to head to the Pro Bowl since Travis Henry in 2002. Lynch was initially the first alternate.[78]

2009 season Lynch carries the ball against the New York Jets in October 2009.

Following his guilty plea on misdemeanor weapons charges during the 2009 off-season, Lynch met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for a disciplinary hearing. Lynch had been arrested in Culver City, California, for having a gun in his backpack in the trunk of a car he was occupying, a crime in California.[79] On April 9, the NFL announced that Lynch would be suspended for the Bills' first three games for violations of the NFL's personal conduct policy.[80] Lynch appealed the league's suspension on May 14 in an attempt to have it reduced or nullified, only to have it upheld by Goodell later on August 3.[81] When interviewed on the topic, Lynch has said that he was not surprised when the suspension was upheld and that he loves playing too much and will try to keep himself out of situations in which there is a risk of being suspended.

Lynch played his first game of the 2009 season against the Miami Dolphins and played the rest of the season.[82] Beginning November 29, he was replaced as the Bills' starting running back by Fred Jackson, who had the first 1,000-yard rushing season of his career. Lynch finished the season with 450 yards on 120 carries with two rushing touchdowns and did not break 100 rushing yards in a single game for the first time in his career.[83]

2010 season

Lynch suffered an ankle sprain in the Bills' preseason opener against the Washington Redskins and was expected to be out for three to four weeks.[84] He started three games for the Bills before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks on October 5 for two draft picks, a fourth-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft and a conditional pick in the 2012 NFL Draft[85] (which would become a fifth-round pick).[86]

Seattle Seahawks 2010 season

Lynch then reunited with former Cal roommate and fellow running back Justin Forsett, a seventh-round draft pick of the Seahawks in 2008. Lynch scored his first touchdown of the season and with the Seahawks on October 17 on a 1-yard run against the Chicago Bears.[87] On December 5, he scored three touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers.[88]

In his first career playoff game, against the New Orleans Saints on January 8, 2011, Lynch had a 67-yard touchdown run in which he broke nine tackles and with one arm threw Saints cornerback Tracy Porter to the ground.[89][90] This run has become known locally in Seattle as the "Beast Quake".[91] The play gets its name from Marshawn Lynch's nickname, "Beast Mode", and the fact that, during and after the play, movement from fans jumping in celebration was so intense that it registered on a seismograph 100 yards from the stadium.[92] In the Divisional Round against the Chicago Bears, he was limited to four carries for two yards in the 35–24 loss.[93] Lynch had a total of 737 yards and six touchdowns during the 2010 season.[94]

Lynch rushed for 1,204 yards and 12 touchdowns, both career bests and posting his first 1,000-yard season since 2008.[95] On December 1, against the Philadelphia Eagles, he was observed receiving Skittles from a trainer to celebrate his touchdown.[96] Fans later threw Skittles onto the field after Lynch scored.[97]

On November 6, against the Dallas Cowboys, Lynch had 135 rushing yards and a touchdown.[98] On December 11, he had his best rushing game of the season with 148 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles.[99] On December 18, he set the franchise record for consecutive games with a touchdown by scoring in his tenth straight game. The previous record of nine was set by Shaun Alexander in 2005. Lynch would reach 11 consecutive games scoring a touchdown before the streak ended against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 17.[100] Lynch led the NFL in rushing yards over the final nine weeks of the season.[101] On January 24, 2012, Lynch was added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster to replace San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore.[102][103] He was ranked 94th by his fellow players on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2012.[104]

On March 4, 2012, Lynch signed a four-year, $31 million contract with the Seahawks.[105]

2012 season

Overall, Lynch started all 16 regular season games, as well as the two playoff games the Seahawks were in. He accumulated 1,590 yards rushing on 315 attempts. He scored 11 touchdowns, his longest being a 77-yard touchdown run. He averaged 19.7 attempts per game and 99.4 yards per game, and over the course of the season, Lynch had an average of 5.0 yards per carry. He fumbled 4 times, and lost 2 of them.[118][119] Lynch was named as a First Team All-Pro and was elected into the 2013 Pro Bowl as a reserve.[120][121] He was ranked as 24th best player in the league among his peers on the NFL Top 100 Players of 2013.[122]

2014 season Lynch with the Seahawks in 2014

On July 24, 2014, former Seahawks fullback and good friend Michael Robinson announced on NFL Network's Inside Training Camp, that Lynch would hold out of Training Camp while he waited for a restructured contract from the Seahawks.[136] Lynch and the Seahawks quickly agreed to new terms for the season, and Lynch served as the starting running back for the team, ahead of backups Robert Turbin and Christine Michael.[137]

In the 2014 season opener, Lynch had 110 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in a 36–16 victory over the Green Bay Packers.[138] During Week 3 against the Denver Broncos, he completed the first overtime drive by rushing for a touchdown, giving the Seahawks a 26–20 victory over Denver in a Super Bowl rematch.[139] On November 2, against the Oakland Raiders, he had 67 rushing yards, two rushing touchdowns, and 76 receiving yards.[140] In the next game against the New York Giants, he had a stellar performance with 140 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns in the 38–17 victory.[141] He scored 24 total points in the game, which was tied with Jonas Gray for the most by any player in a single game in the 2014 season.[142] He continued his successful string of games with 124 rushing yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in a loss the following week.[143]

Lynch had a career-long 79-yard touchdown run against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16, similar to his "Beast Quake" 67-yard scoring run in the 2011 Wild Card Round against the New Orleans Saints.[144] Four days later, Lynch was fined $11,050 by the NFL for his celebration of the score; falling back while extending the ball behind his head and grabbing his crotch. The league considered his celebration an "obscene gesture" to constitute unsportsmanlike conduct.[145]

The Seahawks finished with a 12–4 record and earned a first round bye.[146] He was named to the Pro Bowl for the fifth time in his career.[147] In the Divisional Round against the Carolina Panthers, he had 59 rushing yards in the 31–17 victory.[148] He contributed heavily to a late comeback in the NFC Championship against the Green Bay Packers in a rematch of the season-opener, catching a 26-yard pass to set up one touchdown and later scoring a touchdown of his own on a 24-yard run. The Seahawks won 28–22 in overtime after trailing 19–7 with less than four minutes remaining in the game.[149] His 157 rushing yards in the game were a career postseason high for Lynch, as were his 183 total yards from scrimmage.[150]

Lynch made headlines at Super Bowl XLIX Media Day on January 27, 2015, when he held a five-minute press conference, only answering "I'm just here so I won't get fined" to every question. He has a history of unwillingness to talk to the media.[151]
