Win for both sides

Lynch didn't seem to "have it" anymore and was definitely going to start losing carries to Rawls

Seattle wouldn't be getting good value for 10 million if that were the case and it would have been awkward to cut him, even though it would probably be the best move for the team

Both sides save face this way, Lynch will say "It was time" and the Hawks will tell everyone how disappointed they are not to have Lynch back

The part in bold is kind of a ridiculous statement. He played less than half a season and only got to play behind our oline when it was at its worst. In that half a season, he only got 20+ carries twice. It is unfair to say he has "lost it" when he is one season removed from a very productive season and hasnt been given a fair chance to prove what he can still do.

Im not sure why people are making a big deal out of this. He has been talking about retirement the past two seasons and it seemed like most people, atleast on this forum, had acknowledged that this was most likely his last season in Seattle whether that be because of salary cap or retirement.

I'd be pretty surprised if he didn't retire. However, it is Marshawn. So you never can really know
