Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks was on Conan O’Brien last night and he said he truly considered retirement. 

“I mean, you know, in this game, you know, at this running back position, you don’t go that long,” he said. “But, I mean, they put 12 in front of you for a year you start to think like ‘Yeah, maybe I can do this again.'”

Said Conan: “12 thousand dollars.”

Replied Lynch: “Yeah, something like that.”

It was actually 12 million dollars, and his new deal is worth 24 million. The Seahawks hooked him up with a good deal.
