Running back Marshawn Lynch is retired, unofficially. Officially, he’s still a member of the Seahawks’ roster.

The new league year has arrived without the Seahawks releasing Lynch or placing him on the reserve-retired list. It means that the Seahawks will carry Lynch and his $11.5 million cap number into the 2016 league year.

Fantasy Impact: 

The story goes on to say it remains unclear why the Seahawks haven’t removed Lynch from the roster. One theory is that they’ll wait to do it until after June 1, so that he’ll count $2.5 million against the cap this year, and $2.5 million next year. Another theory is that Lynch is dragging his feet so that he’ll be cut — and so that if he decides to un-retire later he’ll do so as a free agent. Regardless, Lynch remains on the team, at least for now. And possibly for a while longer, the story added.
