When the cornerback Richard Sherman asked Lynch, “What are you doin’ for Christmas?” Lynch responded, “Christmas?” Being confused, the running back said, “I gotta get through Thanksgiving first.” He added, “I’m going to give out turkeys back in the hood.” Impressed with the idea of giving back to the people, Sherman offered to join.

“I’m with ya, you want me to come?” Marshawn gladly asked, “You will? I appreciate it though big dog!” Both the men did a fist bump and Lynch said, “But I’m gonna be in the hood givin out turkeys like Nino Brown baby!” Nino Brown was playing a character in the movie New Jack City. In the movie, Nino Brown plays a big shot, who makes a lot of money. We can see the character of Nino Brown giving food to the people of Harlem on Thanksgiving.

Lynch’s goal is to give back and restore his community. He said, “Trying to restore my community!” Even after becoming a successful NFL player, Marshawn Lynch is still attached to his roots.
