4 reasons we’re so happy Marshawn Lynch is back in the NFL

Marshawn Lynch is back in the NFL, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Even though he continued to entertain us during his retirement by starting a fire with one of his dreads in the wilderness with Bear Grylls and riding a bike around Houston, Scotland, for a Skittles Super Bowl commercial, football wasn’t the same without his antics.

Whether Lynch was leaping over the goal line or repeating I’m just here so I don’t get fined so often to reporters that he eventually trademarked the phrase, he was never afraid to be himself.

There are many memorable moments from Lynch’s career that kept us waiting eagerly to see what he would do or say next. We’re looking forward to adding many more to this collection from Lynch’s new chapter with the Oakland Raiders.

Watt is an outside backer, unlike his hell-raising defensive end of a big brother. He was a college starter for only one year at Wisconsin, but it was a great year. Watt had 63 tackles and 11.5 sacks for the Badgers. Watt is not massive; he measured 6’4, 252 pounds with 21 bench reps at the NFL combine. But he’s an explosive athlete, with a 4.7-second 40 time and a 37-inch vertical leap. He’s going to get sacks. We like sacks.

The Steelers have really enjoyed making this sort of pick in the last few years. They got Jarvis Jones from Georgia in the first round in 2013, which failed. They got Ryan Shazier, an athletic inside linebacker from Ohio State, in 2014. That worked well. They got Kentucky edge rusher Bud Dupree in 2015, and the jury’s still out there.

Elite Kids Orlando Pace Jersey This is the fourth time in five years the Steelers have gone with an uber-athletic linebacker in the first round. That’s mostly because they’ve been old at the position, but I’m convinced it doesn’t hurt that Pittsburgh always rallies around a good linebacker. Watt would be a thrilling first-rounder in this market even if his last name were not Watt and his brother were not a future Hall of Famer.
