Recently retired running back Marshawn Lynch will go down in history as one of the toughest ball-carriers the NFL has ever seen. It usually took more than one defender to take him down, as his stiff arms and churning legs were notorious for keeping rush attempts alive.

Lynch's career yards after contact (5,645) and broken tackles (602) should blow your mind.

Marshawn Lynch has 5,645 career rushing yards...AFTER contact. Has broken 602 tackles in his career. #BeastMode

Lynch, 29, caused a lot of headaches for would-be tacklers -- literally and figuratively. The 215-pound back known as "Beast Mode" played nine seasons with the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills (2007-2015), plowing over plenty of defenders during that span. He finished his career with 9,112 yards and 74 touchdowns on the ground.

The only people who won't miss watching Lynch play on Sundays are those who were previously charged with tackling him.
