Tuesday Round-Up: Marshawn Lynch strikes deal with Skittles

Posted Jan 28, 2014

A morning link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks as they approach Super Bowl XLVIII

Good morning, 12th Man. Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, Jan. 28 - about your Seattle Seahawks, five days before Super Bowl XLVIII against the Denver Broncos at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium.

Running back Marshawn Lynch has inked a deal with Skittles, the favorite gameday candy of the Seahawks' "Beast Mode" back. Lynch will receive financial compensation from the brand, in addition to $10,000 to Lynch's Fam First Family Foundation for every touchdown he scores during Super Bowl XLVIII. That should add a little bit of extra incentive for Lynch to sniff out the end zone and earn his Skittle-shower celebration that has been commonplace at Seattle's CenturyLink Field.

The partnership features an opportunity for Seahawks fans to win an auction for a special "Seattle Mix" bag of Skittles, with all proceeds going to charity. Check out all the details at
