Marshawn Lynch went to Packers locker room to trade jerseys with Aaron Rodgers
Marshawn Lynch abruptly bolted out of the Seattle Seahawks’ locker room following the team’s 28-23 playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, but he had a good reason for doing so.
Lynch headed into the Packers’ locker room at Lambeau Field to do a jersey swap with Aaron Rodgers, his former Cal teammate.
Marshawn Lynch just walked into the #Packers locker room with his jersey. He gave fellow Cal alum Aaron Rodgers a big hug. Rodgers took his jersey from his locker and they just went down a hallway to presumably exchange and share some words.

In unique Marshawn Lynch fashion, the running back just entered the Packers’ locker room for a jersey exchange with Aaron Rodgers. They’re signing one another’s game uniforms.

Lynch and Rodgers teamed up at Cal in 2004 when the Golden Bears went 10-2. Rodgers was a junior and Lynch a true freshman on that team, which was ranked in the top 10 for most of the season and finished ranked No. 9 after losing their bowl game. Rodgers left for the NFL after that season and was drafted by the Packers. Lynch stayed two more seasons and then went to the NFL, where he was drafted by the Bills.
Even after a tough defeat, Lynch still found time for his former teammate.
