It sounds like Marshawn Lynch might be headed to TV.
According to the New York Post, Amazon is interested in hiring Lynch for a role on “Thursday Night Football” once the streaming giant gets exclusive rights to the games next season. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Andrew Marchand reported the following in part about Lynch’s potential role:
Lynch is envisioned by Amazon as a potential part of a more relaxed studio-type show, as well as conducting interviews, according to sources. Lynch, 36, could do reports about the city the games are taking place in, utilizing his sense of humor.
The only way this works with Lynch is if he’s allowed to be himself. If he’s not allowed to cut it loose, then it has no chance of succeeding.
Seeing as how the games will be on a streaming platform and not broadcast television, there would be nothing stopping Lynch from saying or doing whatever he wants.

Apparently, Amazon wants to tap into some of that magic and energy.
“I took one for me, I took one for big bruh and I took one for little bruh.”
Before Marshawn Lynch hopped on the ManningCast, he took a Henny shot for Peyton and Eli.

We’ll see if he lands the gig, but I sure hope he does as long as Amazon lets him do it however he wants. That’d be entertainment gold!
