Is Marshawn Lynch calling it a career at 29 years old?

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported early on Sunday that the Seattle running back had informed those closest to him that he was going to retire.

Late Sunday night, Lynch sent out a cryptic tweet with his cleats hanging from what look to be telephone power lines along with a peace emoji.

The Seahawks followed up by tweeting a thank you to the back.

Lynch was selected 12th overall in the 2007 draft by the Bills before being traded to Seattle in 2010.

He rushed for 9,112 yards and 74 total touchdowns in nine seasons.

He won Super Bowl XVLIII with Seattle, a 43-8 win over the Denver Broncos, in February of 2014.
