Marshawn Lynch helps Tyler Lockett out with 401(k)

Marshawn Lynch Is Hilarious in New Xbox Commercial

In an interview with ESPN's Kenny Mayne, Seattle Seahawks rookie wide receiver/kick returner Tyler Lockett discusses starting quarterback Russell Wilson's role to him as a mentor and running back Marshawn Lynch's role as a financial advisor.

While Mayne does recognize that Lynch is a different person from his public persona, he did respond to Lockett's comment about Lynch helping out the rookie with his 401(k) in only the way Kenny Mayne could.

"I love Marshawn as much as the next guy, but hearing you say the sentence, 'helped me with my 401(k) is just plain funny,'" Mayne quipped.

Keep in mind Lynch did go to Cal-Berkeley for three years and is the primary spokesman for his favorite brand of candy, Skittles. Lynch does use his silent reputation with the sports media to surprisingly appearing in many national commercials.

No, we're not going to see Lynch in any American Family Insurance spots with teammate Russell Wilson anytime soon, but is a Lynch-Lockett Skittles campaign on the horizon? Players can make a boat load with endorsements and perhaps Lockett is learning how to manage those business opportunities from one of the ten most marketed players in the National Football League.

However, for these endorsements to keep coming for Seattle Seahawks' players, they are going to need to start winning some more football games. Seattle sits at a lackluster 2-4 entering their Week 7 road date with their arch rival, the San Francisco 49ers, on Thursday Night Football.

Seattle has to do more than "just show up to stuff so you won't get fined" when taking on the 49ers. Whichever team loses on Thursday Night Football will have a dismal 2-5 record and sit in last place in the NFC West. It is time for the Seahawks to focus on the present and not worry about financial investments, otherwise, Seattle will awkwardly miss the 2015 NFC Playoffs.
