Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch gives McDonald's employee $500
Thursday November 12th, 2015

Marshawn Lynch is a very good running back, which is a very valuable skill that has earned him quite a bit of money. Lynch is also a nice guy, so he enjoys sharing some of his football wealth with those around him.

The Seahawks running back was recently in a McDonald's where he and an employee named Terrance Downs began chatting about a pair of luxury sneakers made by Buscemi that Lynch was wearing, according to TMZ.

"I told him I liked his shoes—navy blue Buscemis—and how I wanted to buy a pair and we all started talking," Downs tells TMZ Sports.

Lynch decided to help the Dallas fast-food worker out and handed him $500 to help him pick up his own pair of Buscemis, which retail from $890 and up online.
