Former Super Bowl Winning Seahawk Marshawn Lynch Becomes Minority Owner Of The NHL's Seattle Kraken

Nearly three years after officially saying farewell to the NFL, Marshawn Lynch has found his way back to the city he once called home while on the field. CNBC reports that the former Seattle Seahawks star is now a minority investor in the NHL’s Seattle Kraken, which is reportedly valued at $875 million. In addition, Lynch is joined by rapper and Seattle native Macklemore. “This is something I never would have imagined,” Lynch said in a press release. “I always dreamed of playing on a professional team but owning one is something special. As I look back on some of my accomplishments — I retired before I was 30 and now being an owner of a professional club at the age of 35 – I’m gonna continue to count my blessings.” Further details of the announcement weren’t released, but it’s said that “minority equity stake deals similar to this are generally for 1% of a team or less.”
