Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch tweeted a pair of hung-up cleats on Sunday, an apparent retirement announcement.

The 29-year-old's retirement had been rumored following an injury to his hamstring early in the season.

Lynch led the NFL in 2014 for rushing touchdowns. The five-time Pro Bowler was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in 2007, and then joined the Seahawks in 2010, playing in their Super Bowl championship in 2013.
