Marshawn Lynch Confirms His Retirement In Interview With '60 Minutes'

Beast Mode has finally confirmed his retirement in an interview with '60 Minutes' that is set to air tomorrow night.

In a joint story by 60 Minutes and Sports IllustratedMarshawn Lynch confirmed to SI's John Wertheim that he is indeed retiring. 

On the day of the Super Bowl, Lynch tweeted a picture of his cleats hanging from a line along with an emoji of a peace sign, signaling to most that he was retiring.

Since then, however, Lynch has not been very public with his plans for next year. But now it seems that Lynch is ready to be clear about his future. 

Lynch was asked whether or not he really is retiring, with teams like the Seahawks and Raiders rumored to be open to him returning to the field. His response was immediate and adamant.

"No. I'm done. I'm done. I enjoyed my time playing. Now it's time to watch my cousins do they thing," said Lynch. 

Lynch's agent, Doug Hendrickson, said he never says never in regards to Lynch, and that he would selfishly like him to play, but that he expects Lynch to stay retired. 

Wertheim wasn't convinced and pressed Lynch one more time, to which Lynch responded, "I'm retired. Is that good enough? Which camera do you want me to look in? This one? I'm done. I'm not playing football anymore."

The full interview airs Tuesday, June 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
