Put @JayGlazer on the list of those who think Marshawn is done in Seattle.
“One hundred percent, there is no way I can see (him back) with his salary,” Clayton said on “Brock and Salk” Monday. “Yeah, if he would take a pay cut, massive pay cut, then he can come back, but you know that’s not gonna happen. So no this has been it.”
Lynch is under contract until 2017, but it comes with a big cap hit, one the Seahawks may not be willing to pay. There’s also the possibility that Lynch could retire, which he has considered in each of the past two offseasons.
“With his salary, with the way that the played this year, with sometimes the headaches he creates for the coaches and the front office and all that, this is it for Marshawn,” Clayton said. “You know everybody here in this town is going to wish him the best because he’s been so special as a talent.”
Seahawks could try to trade Beast Mode.
“There could be, but they’re not gonna get much value because you’re trading a big contract,” he said. “The problem is, if you trade him to (his hometown of) Oakland, what if Oakland moves? You’re trading him to San Diego. That could be an option. I think that they’ll try to do something to accommodate him, but you still kind of wonder where his mind (is) as far as wanting to continue to play football. He’s meant a lot to this city and a lot to this game. I don’t know.”
