TMZ was first to report that a drag race outside the Seahawks’ training facility between running backs Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch ended with Jackson wrecking his Corvette, first into a planter box and then into a stop sign.
There’s proof of that, too. That stop sign is at the corner of Seahawks Way and Lake Washington Boulevard, not far from the facility.
TMZ cited a witness who said Jackson and Lynch were racing as they left practice. After Jackson wrecked, teammates including Richard Sherman and team staffers reportedly came to his aid.
TMZ reports Jackson was taken back to the Seahawks facility but there is no word on whether or not he was injured.
