Marshawn Lynch might be losing friends within the Seahawks locker room, but he is definitely making them on Seattle’s streets.
The star running back, rumored to be on his way out of Seattle, recently returned a wallet to a fan who’d misplaced it at a gas station.

Lynch’s gesture to one of the Seahawks’ faithful follows the team’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, after which the dreaded runner showed signs of frustration with the team.
He told NFL.com’s Michael Silver,
Do I think I’ll be gone after this season? I don’t know, man. The Seahawks, their front office gets in the media; they talk a lot. I don’t talk too much. I just play the game. If they have something going on, I don’t know about it.
While Lynch hinted at the idea of an exit out of Seattle being on his mind, he insisted the Seahawks would improve. He said,
Is this a championship team? Yeah, yeah, we’ve got the heart of a champion. When you’ve got players like Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor — you’re about to make me name the whole damn roster — and there’s some young guys whose names a lot of people don’t know who bring a lot of fight. I always look at the best of our team. So … hell yeah. I would have to be a fool to say no.
The Seahawks are 6-4 so far, and will face the league-leading Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
