In the middle of all the Super Bowl madness was an ever-important tweet from Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch. It's true — he's hanging them up.
Rumors of the 29-year-old running back retiring had spread quickly in the hours leading up to the Super Bowl, and Lynch seemed to confirm those rumors with a simple image.
And it was fitting for a man of few words.
"You know why I'm here," Lynch said during a press conference.

The five-time Pro Bowler won the Super Bowl in 2014 and, perhaps infamously, might have repeated the following year if it wasn't for the so-called "worst play call in Super Bowl history." Lynch finishes his career with the 24th most rushing touchdowns in NFL history.
