Last Marshawn Lynch Press Conference Goes Viral
The last Marshawn Lynch press conference went viral on Sunday night.
The 33-year-old running back played in what was very likely his final NFL game this past weekend.
Several weeks ago, an injury-riddled Seattle Seahawks squad brought him back to play at running back for their playoff run. That run came to a conclusion in the NFC Divisional Round when the Green Bay Packers beat Seattle 28-23.
After the outing, Lynch stepped up to the podium to give the last press conference of his playing career.

“This is a vulnerable time for a lot of the young dudes, you feel me?” he said.
“They don’t be taking care of their chicken right, you feel me? So if I had an opportunity to let these young guys know something I’d say take care of y’all money ’cause it don’t last forever.
“I’ve been on the other side of retirement and it’s good when you get over there and you can do what the (expletive) you want to.
So I’ll tell y’all right now while y’all in it, take care of y’all bread, so when y’all done, you go ahead and take care of yourself,” he continued.
“So while y’all at it right now take care of y’all bodies, you know what I mean? Take care of y’all chicken, take care of y’all mentals.
“You know, I had a couple players who I played with that they’re no longer here no more, they’re no longer.
“So start taking care of y’all mentals, y’all bodies and y’all chicken for when y’all ready to walk away. You’ll walk away and you’ll be able to do what you want to do.”
Lynch is widely regarded as one of the league’s most respected players, and that is unlikely to change as he heads back into retirement.
