With the Seahawks' 31-24 loss to the Panthers in Carolina Sunday, Seattle's season ends and with it, a lot of potential change begins. One of the biggest questions for the Seahawks' offseason surrounds the future of Marshawn Lynch.

Jay Glazer is among those that believes that Lynch's time with Seattle has come to an end, and considering Glazer's track record on reporting (he's pretty much never wrong), we may have just witnessed Lynch's last game in a Seattle uniform.

Lynch finished the day with 6 rushes for 20 yards while the Seahawks' turned to a heavy passing attack to mount their comeback attempt against Carolina, falling short in the end. Lynch's final season line for Seattle: 111 carries for 417 yards and three touchdowns.

Lynch has been the backbone of the Seahawks' offense for years now but Seattle did well without him when he was forced to have surgery this season for an abdominal injury. Thomas Rawls emerged as a legit workhorse and Christine Michael looks like a possibility as a dependable backup. Lynch carries an $11.5M cap hit into 2016 and will turn 30 in April.

Regardless of the down season and despite whatever happens this offseason, Lynch is and will forever be a Seattle sports legend.
