The 30-year-old Lynch, who grew up in Oakland and is still active in the community, played nine years in the National Football League with Buffalo and Seattle, winning a Super Bowl with the Seahawks after the 2013 season.

That's right. Lynch has retweeted another person's tweet of a playlist that includes an item entitled "Oakland Raiders".

Obviously, the (former?) running back knows what he's doing.

Josh McCown might be the answer, in the short term, at least, for the quarterback-needy Jets, as the free agent met with NY yesterday and today, according to a source. Lynch would be, according to letter of the league's collective bargaining agreement, subject to paying back the 2016 proration on that signing bonus, a sum of $2.5 million for the season he was "retired".

Who gets hurt by repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act
This is why many feel the GOP bill will undergo multiple changes before it ever sees President Trump. Many in Texas are keeping a close eye on the Republican bid to replace the Affordable Care Act .

A new report from ESPN's Adam Schefter and Josina Anderson on Friday said that the Raiders are "strongly considering" trying to bring Lynch out of retirement, either through a trade or a release. Which camera do you want me to look into? Lynch funneled a percentage of his first-day sales to his Fam 1st Family Foundation, which mentors underserved Bay Area youth.

That's certainly possible, especially for a guy who sounds like he is only really interested in coming back to football if it's to play for his hometown Raiders.

As for Lynch asking for his reinstatement and then returning to play for the Seahawks, this week's signing of veteran free-agent running back Eddie Lacy shows the team has long since given away Lynch's role and his roster spot. He found a locker room in Seattle where he could be himself, but sparred with the media and became more reserved publicly over time. Alfred Morris went from an unknown rookie to the NFL's second-leading rusher in 2012. However, since the Seahawks still hold Lynch's rights, the Raiders would have to trade for him - and the Seahawks are willing to listen, according to

It's always felt as though Lynch needed Oakland, and that was where he'd truly be happy. The Raiders are gonna Raider.
