Depressing NFL post-retirement stories are nothing new.
Players blow through their money because of terrible business decisions or a slew of other reasons.
Running back Marshawn Lynch doesn’t want to fall into that unfortunate group, so he is investing his money wisely.
Aside from owning Rob Ben’s restaurant in Emeryville, California, he also created the Dodi Blunts crafted cannabis brand.
Lynch also established Beast Mode Marketing and owns a stake in Fan Controlled Football.
But the five-time Pro Bowler isn’t stopping after becoming a minority owner of the Seattle Kraken.
However, he isn’t the typical corporate-acting owner after his video made rounds on Twitter.

Brian Cobb shared a video of Lynch wheeling a Zamboni at the Kraken’s practice facility while wearing a Kraken jersey.
He enjoys the moment and life in general because he is cashing in on the brand he has built from his football days.
Lynch continues to reap successes off the field eight years after winning Super Bowl XLVIII with the Seattle Seahawks.
Aside from him, Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist Macklemore also joined the Kraken ownership group.
A Quick Preview Of The Kraken
While the team is Lynch’s latest addition to his business portfolio, the Kraken play like a typical expansion team.
The team was founded in 2021, and they are 24-44-6 as of writing.
The Kraken organization hopes that high-profile owners like Lynch and Macklemore will help turn things around.
Aside from the attention they would bring, they hope that both minority owners could inspire the team to succeed.
After all, they are both successful individuals in their own right.
Macklemore has his Grammys, while Lynch has two All-Pro selections, is a two-time rushing touchdowns leader, and a member of the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team.
