While most of the world was tuning in to Super Bowl 50, Marshawn Lynch was making an announcement.
While it doesn't specifically say he's calling it a career, you could get that message by looking at his tweet:

It's likely as officially of a confirmation as we'll get from Lynch.
Although his tweet didn't spell it out in words, Ian Rapport of NFL Network is officially reporting that Lynch informed the Seahawks of his plans to retire.
To be clear on Marshawn Lynch, in case his epic tweet didn't say it all: He did indicate to the #Seahawks that he's retiring. ✌?

This creates an interesting setup in Seattle for fantasy owners.
Who can/will we trust going into 2016 drafts at the running back position? For now, it's too early to tell.
