The first time Lynch retired was after nine NFL seasons when the running back tweeted a photo of cleats dangling over a wire with a “peace out” emoji during the fourth quarter of Super Bowl 50 in February 2016.

As NBC Sports noted, if Lynch is actually retiring he “will finish his NFL career with 2,441 rushes for 10,379 yards and 84 touchdowns and 391 receptions for 2,214 yards and nine TDs,” having “averaged 4.85 yards per carry in the playoff with nine touchdowns.”

Countless fans on Twitter have spoken on Lynch’s retirement and shared their favorite moments from the athlete’s career.

What Lynch will do following his retirement is also unknown. He had previously purchased a soul food restaurant in Emeryville, California, called Secnd’s Restaurant and Bar. The owner, Cassie Nickelson, was retiring when Lynch purchased the restaurant from them.

Nickelson used to run a catering business out of her apartment and Lynch was one of her customers.

“When he was 9-years-old, he came across the street to get a hamburger and French fries. 25-cent French fries and a 75-cent hamburger,” Nickelson had previously recalled in an interview with KTVU.
