SEATTLE – You can take Marshawn Lynch out of football, but you can’t take the football out of Marshawn Lynch.

Beast Mode, who retired from the Seahawks this offseason, was spotted in pads practicing with his alma mater the Cal Golden Bears in Australia.

"He came out to practice [Tuesday], watched practice, actually suited out and took a couple reps as the scout team running back," Cal coach Sonny Dykes reportedly told ESPN.

Cal opens the season Friday vs. Hawai’i in Sydney.
