Last week, it was announced that Marshawn Lynch was planning on retiring for the second time in his career after spending the last two years with his hometown Oakland Raiders, league sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter at the time.
It turns out Lynch still has the itch inside him to play football because the veteran running back would return to the Raiders if the team wanted to bring him back, according to a person familiar with Lynch’s thinking.
Lynch was tied for fifth in the AFC with 331 rushing yards through Week 5 when he suffered what eventually became a season-ending groin injury against the Seattle Seahawks during the 2018 season.
Lynch rushed for 1,267 yards on 297 carries in 21 games over two seasons with the Raiders.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
