Marshawn Lynch gives McDonald's worker $500 for shoes

DALLAS - Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch likely has a new fan after he reportedly gave a McDonald's worker $500 to help him pick up a pair of high-fashion sneakers.

According to a Thursday TMZ report, Lynch struck up a conversation with 17-year-old Terrance Downs at a Dallas-area McDonald's during the Seahawks' bye week after Downs told "Beast Mode" he admired his Buscemi sneakers.

From TMZ:

"I told him I liked his shoes - navy blue Buscemis - and how I wanted to buy a pair and we all started talking," Downs tells TMZ Sports.

Lynch asked him about school and what he wanted to do in life, and Downs told him he's into fashion and wants to own a boutique one day.

That's when Lynch whipped out $500 and handed it over ... telling Downs, "If you're serious about getting those shoes, here's some money to help you get 'em. My job is to continue to see you grow."

Downs told TMZ he indeed picked up a pair of the shoes, which typically retail between $800 and $900.

On Wednesday, TMZ reported the story of injured Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette, who bought 100 cheeseburgers for homeless people while in Dallas following season-ending neck surgery.

Lockette was injured in the Seahawks' 13-12 win over the Cowboys in Week 8.
