“Keep an eye on Week 4 or Week 5 for the possibility of an unretirement,” Florio said.
It would be a bit unexpected for Lynch to return to the league so soon. One person that probably isn’t shocked at all, however, is Seattle corner Richard Sherman. A few months ago, Sherman said he wouldn’t be surprised if Lynch played in 2016.
