The Seattle Seahawks were mere inches away from the lead in Super Bowl XLIX last month when viewers thought a final, winning handoff to Marshawn Lynch was in store. Instead, Russell Wilson threw an interception at the goal line and the New England Patriots took home the victory. Recently Lynch spoke to the Turkish media while traveling, revealing that he too expected to get the ball and take the trophy home.
Lynch explains, “To be honest with you, I would be lying if I didn’t tell you that I was expecting the ball. Yes, I was expecting the ball.” It’s surprising to see Lynch speak to any member of the media; he’s had a long history of keeping his mouth shut. However, he seems to have temporality changed his mind.
When it comes to whether or not Lynch will return to the Seahawks next season, the verdict is still out. Hopefully he discloses the info to the Turkish media, because stateside won’t know a thing until the actual season commences.
