Marshawn hoped to wear throwback helmet

Bills RB Marshawn Lynch, who was named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster Thursday to replace Titans RB Chris Johnson, had mentioned to Buffalo’s equipment staff that if he somehow made it out to Hawaii this year for the Pro Bowl, that he wanted them to pack his white standing buffalo helmet.

For those that don’t know the white helmet with the standing buffalo is part of the team’s throwback uniform ensemble, and there are some players in Buffalo’s locker room that like the retro look.

One of them obviously is Lynch, but I’ve confirmed with the Bills equipment staff that they had to send the regular red Bills helmet in Lynch’s uniform bag. It’s unlikely the league would have allowed Lynch to wear the throwback helmet, since it is not part of the team’s standard uniform.
