Over the weekend Marshawn Lynch HINTED that he wants to got play for The Raiders…
Word comes from a source informant who told the team’s interest told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Despite the hints it’s been noted by Rapoport that there is no indication the Raiders have contacted the Seahawks yet about Lynch.
Most importantly, Marshall Lynch hasn’t said he wants to come out of retirement to play again. What we do know is that Lynch has been keeping in shape and is mulling over the idea of coming back, per NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.
The news of Marshawn Lynch heading back to the NFL as a Oakland Raiders RB was first reported by KGMZ-FM in San Francisco. Lynch will turn 30 next month, which makes Oakland a fascinating change-up. This is now different from 27-year-old Pro Bowler Latavius Murray to walk in free agency.
The only thing that stands in the way is the simple fact that the Raiders aren’t in a strong position to orchestrate a potential trade with the Seahawks.
After Lynch’s artful retirement announcement during Super Bowl 50, the tea leaves have suggested he still had some gas left in the tank.
