Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been called a lot of things lately, but Good Samaritan has not been one of them.
In one of those fun moments that often gets overlooked, though, Lynch returned the wallet of a Seattle-area man who dropped it at a gas station where Lynch was filling up.
Lynch and some teammates were on their way to Marsyville-Pilchuck High School, which endured a deadly shooting just three weeks ago, for an assembly.
This story comes out amid what has been a rocky few weeks for Beast Mode's public perception. When he doesn't leave the field at halftime, for example, it's automatically assumed he's making a statement about the recent reports that he will not be back with the team next year.
But deep down, Lynch has always maintained a close relationship with the Seahawks' fan base because of under-the-radar moments like these. In a league climate that can sometimes feel artificial, Lynch has an authenticity about him that is always fun to watch.
