Marshawn Lynch wants to play for Raiders

Marshawn Lynch Running Against Arizona Cardinals

Marshawn Lynch Running Against Arizona Cardinals

Of course, King on Friday invited Lynch to join the Raiders, joking (we think) that the running back would get the rookie treatment in Oakland and carry the punter's pads after practice.

The Seattle Seahawks still hold Lynch's rights since he retired with two years left on his contract. If those weekend nights were filled with visions of Marshawn Lynch in a Raiders uniform dancing in your head, the latest update on his situation may be cause for some dreamy goodness. If Lynch does come out of retirement and is still a member of the Seahawks organization, they would be on the hook for his $9 million cap hit for 2017.

ESPN reported Friday the Raiders are strongly considering acquiring Lynch via trade or if Seattle releases him.

Raiders linebacker Bruce Irvin, who played with Lynch in Seattle, Tweeted out his thoughts.

The Seahawks, with returning backs Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise and newcomer Eddie Lacy, look set at running back.

Rep Devin Nunes asked Rogers if there was any evidence that Russian Federation interfered with vote tallies in several states. Comey testified on a variety of subjects including the investigation into former U.S.

That contract would pay him a base salary of $9 million in 2017 and then a salary of $7 million in the 2018 National Football League season. He nearly certainly would have to accept a pay cut to join the Raiders. Another report surfaced that Lynch did not request his release. However, it was speculated all season long that Lynch would ultimately un-retire while that never happened.

All in all, Lynch averaged 3.8 yards per carry in 2015, his lowest total since the 2010 season by a pretty fair amount. Other running backs, such as Adrian Peterson and LeGarrette Blount, are still available in the free agent market.

He's been seen in Egypt, Scotland and in his hometown of Oakland.

ALAMEDA, Calif. - Remember how Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement from the NFL?

Lynch has been quite adept at keeping his name in the news even though he's not playing.
