Marshawn Lynch un-retiring? Beast Mode tells the Raiders he wants to play again

Could Marshawn Lynch be giving football another shop? That’s what he told the Oakland Raiders.

Lynch is unofficially retired, because he is currently under contract with the Seattle Seahawks, but it sounds like Beast Mode is serious this time about exploring his options for returning to the NFL. At 30 years old, he certainly has a few years left in the tank if he really wanted to give it a go, and what better way to finish up his career by repping his hometown?

Seattle would definitely have to give Lynch up before this could happen though, but it’s looking like they’re willing to acquiesce. The Seahawks have been giving Lynch permission to talk with Oakland.

It’d be really great to have Lynch back in the Bay repping the Raiders. Lynch has spent the last year doing a lot of work with the California Golden Bears, so having him in Oakland wouldn’t be too far of a departure.
