Marshawn Lynch keeps chicken wings in his socks

Thursday July 16th, 2015

Marshawn Lynch is one of the NFL's most interesting characters, from his undying love of Skittles to his disdain for the media, and a new story on abut the running back adds another layer to his legend.

The article details Lynch's extensive work with disadvantaged youth in his hometown of Oakland, but the tidbit likely to have people talking is unrelated to the star's philanthropic endeavors with his Fam 1st Family Foundation, where he spent Saturday working with troubled kids and coaching football. Rather, it deals with his uncommon food storage system, as's John Boyle reports.

“At one point Lynch is delivered some chicken wings on the field and he stuffs a few extras in his socks. Yes, you read that right, for a few minutes this millionaire, Pro-Bowl running back was coaching football on a warm July afternoon with chicken wings in his socks, which he later removed and ate.”
