RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider says the team has not received retirement paperwork for running back Marshawn Lynch.

After the conclusion of the draft Saturday, Schneider said the paperwork has not been filed with the league, but the Seahawks are prepared from a salary cap standpoint whether Lynch’s retirement becomes official before or after June 1.

Asked if he knew when those papers would be filed, Schneider said, “No. I really don’t. Your guess is as good as mine.”

Coach Pete Carroll reiterated that Lynch is retired and not planning to play this year: “He’s committed to being retired.”

Lynch announced his intentions to retire during the second half of the Super Bowl, posting a picture on social media. He’s spent some of the offseason in Egypt at a football camp and in Haiti on a relief mission.
