Marshawn Lynch Reportedly ‘Really Wants’ To Play For The Raiders
According to The MMQB’s Peter King, former Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch ‘really wants’ to come out of retirement and play for the Oakland Raiders.
“Late Saturday night I talked to an excellent West Coast source on this story. “He [Lynch] really wants to play for the Raiders,” the source said. “He also wants to do good things for his foundation in the area. This is a great chance to accomplish both things.”
It could happen one of two ways. Seattle could trade Lynch—likely for a conditional 2018 draft choice, since Oakland wouldn’t be eager to give anything this year, not knowing if the rusty Lynch would be worth it. Or Seattle could release him, which would void his contract.”
The Seahawks have yet to state what their intentions are with Lynch, while Raiders punter Marquette King had made it very clear he wants him by openly campaigning for Lynch to come to the team.
