The retired Seattle Seahawks running back is now at the Raiders' practice facility, according to Pat McAfee of Barstool Sports. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Lynch is expected to eventually come out of retirement and play for the Raiders.
What a story it would be for Marshawn to come out of retirement, and play for his hometown team in Oakland. With so many steps already determined, it really seems like this could a possibility in the near future.
The Raiders are looking to replace running back Latavius Murray who recently departed for the Vikings in free agency.
Lynch, who turns 31 later this month, announced his retirement from professional football on February 7, 2016. The rookie duo combined for 31 carries and 110 rushing yards without scoring a touchdown.
The Seahawks still hold Lynch's rights since he retired one year in to a two-year, $24 million extension, so the Raiders would have to trade for him in order to acquire him. Lynch could pair with second-year backs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard to form a three-headed backfield behind a stout offensive line. "I'm not playing football anymore", Lynch said last June in a "60 Minutes Sports" appearance on Showtime.
