The Seahawks are coming off their first Super Bowl victory and they have a legitimate chance to be contenders to defend their title in each of the next few years.

Seattle has an impressive roster that is mixed with young talent and veteran leaders, plus Lynch is a fan favorite that has made his mark in the Pacific Northwest and he was a key part of the Seahawks dream season last year.

It’s not uncommon to hear about players retiring after winning the Super Bowl, but Lynch’s case is intriguing because he has the to chance to be on a great team until his contract runs out and he can still be a key contributor to another Super Bowl run.

That’s a gig that seems like it would be hard to pass up.
