Marshawn Lynch Seattle Seahawks Rumors: RB Wants Released, Join Oakland Raiders?

Marshawn Lynch Seattle Seahawks Rumors: RB Wants Released, Join Oakland Raiders?

As reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Oakland Raiders are attempting to persuade Lynch to come out of retirement and don their famous silver and black uniform.

Lynch still has gas left in the tank, and the Raiders have a gaping hole at the running back position with Latavius Murray replacing Adrian Peterson in Minnesota. It raises the distinct possibly of a Marshawn Lynch to Oakland Raiders trade working.

"It could really happen", a source familiar with the situation told ESPN. This off-season could get much bigger for the Raiders, and Lynch could be involved in that happening. "I enjoyed my time".


Lynch last appeared in the National Football League in 2015, which ended up being an injury-filled year that limited him to seven games. McKenzie and Seahawks general manager John Schneider have completed many trades together and have a good working relationship as they both worked together with the Green Bay Packers. "I'm not playing football anymore", Lynch said last June in a "60 Minutes Sports" appearance on Showtime. His retirement may not turn out to last long after all, it could be cut short for a simple reason, his love for the game. The Raiders' offensive line is miles better than what Lynch was running behind in Seattle, and Derek Carr leads a more vertical passing game that benefits running backs.

Lynch, who is originally from Oakland, was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in 2007, and played his final five seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.
