The NFL dropped an awesome video Wednesday night after Marshawn Lynch retired from the league.

The legendary running back called it quits after a couple seasons with the Raiders, and is now headed towards some serious rest and relaxation. (RELATED: Marshawn Lynch Retires From The NFL And The Oakland Raiders)

He will go down as one of the most punishing guys to ever play the game. He absolutely dominated opposing defenses.

The video released by the NFL is all the proof you’ll ever need of that fact. Give it a watch below.

Like I said above, Lynch was unstoppable coming out of the backfield. He is absolutely huge and the last guy on pretty much any offense you want to see crashing through a hole in the offensive line.

He was a freak of nature. Now, he’ll take his money, take his Super Bowl ring from the Seahawks and ride off into the sunset.

He’s had a hell of a career, and there’s no other way to describe it.

The NFL draft starts tonight, and the Raiders have a very obvious hole to fill at running back. Will they take one in the first round?

Almost certainly not, but it’s going to have to be addressed sooner than later. As for Marshawn, hate to see a guy like him leave the league, but there’s no doubt he will be remembered for a long time.
