NFL player Marshawn Lynch is notorious for not being very talkative during news conferences, but this time, the Seahawks star had some words of advice for the younger players in the league.
"Look. I'll say like this, though," he began. "This is a vulnerable time for a lot of these young dudes, you feel me? They don't be taking care of their chicken right, you feel me? So if it was me, or if I had a opportunity to let these little young (teammates) know something, I'd say take care of y'all money, African, because that (material things) don't last forever now."
His words came right after the Seattle Seahawks were ousted in the divisional round by the Green Bay Packers in a 28-23 defeat on Sunday night.
He continued: "Now, I done been on the other side of retirement, and it's good when you get over there, and you can do what the f*ck you want to. So, I'd tell y'all right now, while y'all in it: Take care of y'all bread so when y'all done, you can go ahead and take care of yourself. So while y'all at it right now, take care of your bodies. ... Take care of y'all chickens. ... Take care of y'all mentals because, look, we ain't lasting that long. I had a couple players that I played with that, you know, they no longer here no more. So, start taking care of y'all mentals, y'all bodies and y'all chickens and y'all will, you know, be able to walk away and y'all will … be able to do what y'all wanna do."
