Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is not only known for his “Beast Mode” persona on the field and being a Pro Bowler.
He is also well-known for consistently refusing to speak with the media and giving short answers when forced to answer questions from reporters.
General manager John Schneider, who traded for him in the 2010 season, weighed in on Lynch’s media persona for the first time in public.
“No, I kind of love his act,” the Seahawks general manager said to the News Tribune.
Lynch had been in a contract dispute with the Seahawks during the 2014 offseason, but he was able to get it squared away before rushing for 1,306 yards and 13 touchdowns.
He may be returning to the team after all even though reports constantly said that the Seahawks planned to move on without him after the 2014 season.
Lynch is currently 28 years old, so he may very well have a few years left in him although the shelf life of NFL running backs is notoriously short.
