Retired NFL tailback Michael Robinson is unsure whether his former teammate, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, will return for a ninth season, reiterating that he's still considering retirement.
"I don't know," Robinson said on a Seattle radio station, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. "I don't think Marshawn knows yet. I don't know what a timeline is, guys. I would guess that Marshawn doesn't even really know what a timeline is.
"Probably going to be a feel thing and we'll see just like everybody else ... Marshawn is getting to a point in his life where he may want to enjoy other things in his life, other things that are important to him."
Robinson also did not rule out a return.
"My bet would be that he plays next year in Seattle ... I don't think he knew whether he was going to play last year until almost training camp."
But as of now, Lynch's future seems to be entirely up in the air.
"Has he had enough football? You can't ask him that right after the season because your body is telling you yes," Robinson said. "Right now you just have to let him wait it out, see how the off-season goes, let him get his body right again, and the you will see if he wants to come back or not."
Lynch, 28, is a five-time Pro Bowler, a first-team All-Pro and a Super Bowl champion. He has accrued 10,594 from scrimmage in 120 games played, including 80 touchdowns.
The Seahawks bruiser led the NFL the last two seasons in rushing touchdowns.
