Rapoport's report also states that Lynch will only return for the Raiders, one probably reason being that Lynch maintains a a home near the Raiders' facility and Oakland is his hometown, having grown up in the area. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter the deal "eventually will happen".

In what is to date the firmest indication that Marshawn Lynch's comeback is an actual possibility, the former Seahawks running back reportedly visited with the Raiders on Wednesday and told the team he intends to come out of retirement. Discussion on a transaction would be the next step in Beast Mode's quest to play for the Silver and Black.

The Raiders are in need of a running back after losing Latavius Murray to the Minnesota Vikings in free agency.

Marshawn Lynch will be 31-years-old in a little over two weeks and he last played in 2015 where he played in just seven games and rushed for 417 yards and three touchdowns. Lynch's last full season was 2014, where he gained 1,306 yards rushing on 4.7 yards per carry, leading many to believe that Lynch is still capable of being a productive National Football League back.

The Raiders, however, would have to work out an agreement with the Seahawks for Lynch's rights. Pairing Lynch with jitterbugs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard would complete Oakland's backfield.

When Lynch does un-retire, he will be under contract with the Seahawks, who have moved on to Eddie Lacy.

When we last saw Marshawn Lynch, he was peddling Skittles in Scotland, literally.

Should Lynch come out of retirement, he is line for a salary cap hit of $9 million in 2017 and a base salary of $7 million in 2018. "You've got to talk to him".
