Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch has not stopped making headlines this offseason. Just a few days ago he was on the beach completing a grueling workout. Now, he is showing his skills on the soccer field, via the Seattle Sounder’s Twitter account.

During the video, Lynch did not look too graceful, for he made no effort to use his feet to the dribble the ball. Instead, the former Cal Bear picked up the ball, as if he took a handoff, and sprinted into the net.
As expected, Lynch picked up a red card for using his hands to pick up the ball. Then, he took the red card out of the ref’s hand and threw the card across the field. Lynch also punted the soccer ball, in fake anger, across the pitch.
In all honesty, it is unclear why Lynch was ever let into the scrimmage, but it was funny to watch a massive football player amongst the smaller futbol players.
Despite moving on from the Seattle Seahawks, he is still returning to the city and engaging with the community during the scrimmage. Incredibly, Lynch makes a close connection to every community he is a part of.
Thankfully, we will have him in the Oakland community for the foreseeable future making a sensational impact.
