Former NFL star Marshawn Lynch spotted handing out free Thanksgiving turkeys in Hawaii


Former NFL star Marshawn Lynch went from Beast Mode to Feast Mode.

As noted by Rob DeMello of Honolulu-based KHON2 News, the five-time Pro Bowler was spotted in Hawaii (where he apparently lives now), handing out 200 free turkeys to cars stopped at a local traffic light. The former Seahawks, Bills and Raiders star seemed to be enjoying himself (I probably would too if I lived in a place where it was 75 and sunny every day), shaking hands and chatting up appreciative passersby, all while masking up, of course.

The eccentric 34-year-old, well-known for his physical style of play (see Beast Quakes 1 and 2), tends to be a community fixture wherever he winds up. If you recall, the Skittle-munching bagpipe enthusiast (and occasional golf cart thief) also lent a helping hand in April, passing out “Beast Mode” masks in his native Oakland.

Lynch has yet to officially retire—in fact, the Seahawks had considered a reunion with the 5’11” bruiser this offseason before pivoting to Carlos Hyde—though the Cal-Berkeley alum appears to be at peace with the sun setting on his NFL career. And where better to shack up in your post-playing life than the soothing Aloha State with its clear skies and picture-esque views?

Props to Lynch for spreading some much-needed holiday cheer with his charitable efforts. We know Marshawn likes to take care of his chicken, but, in a pinch, turkey works just as well.
