After scoring a pair of touchdowns against the Packers during Seattle’s 28-23 loss to Greem Bay on Sunday, running back Marshawn Lynch said he’s “not sure” whether he will be returning to the Seahawks or not.

The 33-year-old, who had four touchdowns in three games for the Seahawks after injuries to running backs Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny prompted Seattle to ask hin to come out of retirement, called his return to the team “solid.”

But, when asked if he would be back, Lynch couldn’t say one way or another. “I’m not sure,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.”

Speaking during his postgame press conference, Lynch was much more expansive when offering advice to younger players.

“It’s a vulnerable time for a lot of these young dudes, you feel me?” Lynch said. “They don’t be taking care of their chicken right, you feel me? If they was me or I had the opportunity, the opportunity to let them know something, I say, ‘Take care of y’all money because that shit don’t last forever.'”

(In this instance, chicken is slang for money.)

“Now I’ve been on the other side of retirement, and it’s good when [you] get over there and you can do what the f-ck you want to, so I tell y’all right now while y’all in it,” he continued. “Take care of y’all bread so when you’re all done, you go ahead and take care of yourself. So while y’all at it right now, take care y’all bodies, take care y’all chicken, and take care y’all mentals, cause we ain’t lasting that long.”

If this is truly it for Lynch, he’ll retire with 94-regular season touchdown, more than 10,000 rushing yards, a Super Bowl win and one of the most memorable runs in NFL history.

Even if the 33-year-old does hang up his cleats, there’s no guarantee he stays on the sidelines as he’s come out of retirement twice already.
