The first question, the reporter stated the question as addressing ‘the elephant in the room’, to which Marshawn answered as only Marshawn can.
I think that elephant just left the room cuz a little mouse ran in, Lynch responded. Don’t they say elephants are scared of mouses or something? The muhfucka left, cousin.

Davis is 34 years old, but his play hasn’t declined. Davis was selected in the first round of the 2005 draft by the Panthers, and with the exception of a couple of seasons that were marred by injury, has been a consistent and forceful presence on the field for Carolina. He led the team in tackles last season with 106, and he added 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and three interceptions.
He also played every single defensive snap in the team’s last 11 games of the season. Davis finished the year with 1,009 snaps, which was the team’s high mark.
Davis’ age and the investment the team made into Shaq Thompson, Carolina’s first-round pick in 2015, raised some questions about a possible extension for Davis. New defensive coordinator Steve Wilks said Thompson will be a bigger part of the defensive rotation this season to give Davis an opportunity to rest.
With Thomas Davis getting up there in age and years, we’ve got to cut down on his reps, Wilks said via the team’s website. So there will be times where Shaq is going to be in, and we’re going to try to relieve Thomas to give him some rest.
Davis said he understood that the negotiation process takes time, and that there was no need to rush since he was still under contract through the 2017 season.
