– Running back Marshawn Lynch is reportedly weighing his decision to sign an extension in Seattle or retire. Former Seattle fullback Michael Robinson said he’s spoken with Lynch, who’s indicated that he is trying to determine whether he would like to retire from the NFL at the age of 28, or return to the Seahawks for another chance at a championship. Lynch has made it known around the league that he is comfortable with all that he’s accomplished in his eight-year NFL career, which includes a Super Bowl victory. It’s being reported that a few of the reasons for his possible decision to retire stem from the abuse his body has taken over his eight years as one of the more physical runners in the league, his desire to move on throughout his life and do other things that he’s passionate about, and his overall mindset in determining exactly how satisfied he is with his career accomplishments. Over his eight years in the league, Lynch has rushed for 8,695 yards including 71 rushing touchdowns and a career mark of 4.3 yards per carry.

– Reportedly, Denver QB Peyton Manning has let the team know that he is good to go, and will return for the 2015 season. It hasn’t been officially announced that Manning will return but he reportedly expressed no interest in retiring when meeting with Denver officials Thursday night. The elder Manning brother is approaching 39 years of age, and reportedly decided to meet with a famous performance trainer, Mackie Shilstone. Through the tests that Manning had vigorously worked through, he was graded with a very high score. In the coming weeks, it’s expected that Manning and the Broncos will work on a restructuring of his contract in order to avoid a $19M dollar salary on the 2015 cap. There are many things that need to fall in place for Manning to return to the Broncos, including his contract talks and his overall health. It remains to be seen what will happen, but the decision will surely make for an interesting one as free agency approaches, as they have top wide receiver, Demariyus Thomas who is set to become an unrestricted free agent if he doesn’t receive the franchise tag.
