Beast Mode appears to be having fun in retirement.

The Seattle Seahawks posted a video on its Facebook page of former running back Marshawn Lynch riding a camel, as he and nine other professional football players go on a goodwill tour of Egypt with American Football Without Barriers.

The group promotes fitness, education and wellness around the world, and holds American football skills-building clinics for youth and conducts community outreach, according to its blog.

“Over the course of two days they will teach on-field technical skill building and leadership to over 450 Egyptian and international American football players and enthusiasts.  The players will also hold a Coaches Clinic with in-class instruction and on-field implementation….

“As part of their global goodwill tour, the players have designated two days of community outreach and will be visiting the Children’s Cancer Hospital 57357 and LeBaladna which seeks to help Egypt’s underprivileged communities and reform their infrastructure which includes education, health, food supply, and shelter.”

As part of the tour, American Football Without Barriers has posted videos and photos of Lynch and other players with youth on its social media channels, so fans who are sad that he won’t join the Seahawks next year at least can enjoy some of his post-career travels vicariously.
