Marshawn Lynch: 'I think the biggest buildup now is preparing for next season'

Marshawn Lynch, right, and Eric Davis laugh it up.

The Marshawn Lynch Offseason Media Tour continues with an appearance on the Fox Sports 1 show “Back of the Shop.” It’s kind of a roundtable show set in a barbershop. Lynch will be on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. Here’s how to find the channel.

From the press release:

Talking to MLB legends (Daryl) Strawberry and (Eric) Davis, Lynch says he would have liked to play in their era, before Instagram, Twitter and other social media outlets were around. “I know y’all was out there tearing it up,” Lynch says.

“That was an understatement,” Davis replies. “There wasn’t no TMZ following you around everywhere you go.”

“Hell no,” says Lynch. “We go stand outside right now, I’m telling you, we’re going to be plastered over the internet. Like, what are they up to, those three? What are these three doing? Two of them got the same color on and everything.”

“We’re so glad they didn’t have Instagram and Twitter,” Strawberry adds. “Because we would’ve been in the headlines every day.”

“Y’all got to live a different lifestyle,” says Lynch. “See, they think this is living now – I’ve got this, and go take a picture. But see, the living to me would have been, I’m going to do my thing, I’m going to wake up in the morning, ain’t got to worry about going on the internet and somebody saying this and that, and now everybody and their mama is questioning me because I’m a grown-ass man, and I was doing grown-ass man things.”
