It’s official. Beast mode is back.

On Wednesday the Seattle Seahawks traded the rights to retired running back Marshawn Lynch to the Oakland Raiders pending a physical. Initially it was reported that the Raiders had signed the All-Pro running back to a one-year deal. However, Adam Schefter now says the deal is for two years.

Either way, this is good news for football fans in general and amazing news for Raiders fan in particular. Marshawn Lynch was—and at the age of 31, presumably will still be—one of the most entertaining players in the NFL both on and off the field. The Raiders are very lucky he’s not holding a grudge after their decision to relocate from his hometown.

Needless to say, Marshawn’s future teammates in Oakland were pretty thrilled by the news. Here are some of their Twitter reactions: 

The Raiders aren’t the only ones reacting to the news, either. Here are a few reactions from around the NFL and elsewhere: 

Congratulations, Marshawn. I hereby pronounced April 26 to be International Quesadilla Day.
