Marshawn Lynch is a blessing.
Ever since he uttered the words, "I'm just here so I won't get fined," the former Seattle Seahawks quarterback has been a source of joy in various ways.
During a press conference on Tuesday, Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin talked about Sunday's upcoming game, in which Lynch will play against his former team for the first time since he retired in 2015, according to The Seattle Times. Lynch returned to pro football in 2017, this time joining his hometown team, the Oakland Raiders.
“He’ll probably be in our locker room at some point talking trash,’’ said Baldwin. “But that’s just Marshawn.’’
Baldwin also decided to dedicate some of his press time to highlighting his former teammate's generosity. He recounted the time Lynch gave him a backpack right off his back because he said he liked it.
Doug Baldwin told story of young #Seahawks WR who came up to Marshawn Lynch in lckr rm marveling how he liked Lynch's slick backback. Lynch dumped everything out of it onto the floor then gave the backpack to the young WR to keep
Who was that young WR?
Baldwin: "That was me."

Awww, even Beast Mode can soften up! Everyone's hearts melted at that story, and it just reiterated how great of a guy Lynch is. Baldwin sharing his story inspired others to provide even more receipts of Lynch's kindness.
