If this turns out to be the last year that Marshawn Lynch played football, he will have a nice nest egg to retire with. It’s rumored that “Beastmode” hasn't spent one penny of the reportedly $49.7 million he’s earned while playing in the NFL.


“Marshawn Lynch has a lot of money,” Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network said during a radio segment on The Ian & Puck Show. “He hasn’t spent a dime of his actual playing money … ever.”

According to Yahoo! Finance, Lynch 29, has probably lived off his endorsements, considering that he makes about $5 million a year through endorsement deals with Nike, Pepsi, Skittles, Progressive and Activision.  

Lynch was picked 12th in the 2007 draft and has been mulling retirement since his season ended.

Rapoport added during the radio show that he would be “surprised” if Lynch is back in the NFL next season.

“His days in Seattle, from what I understand, are over,” Rapoport added. “I would expect him to walk away after that.”
