Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has reached a deal to play for his hometown Oakland Raiders, according to Michael Silver of NFL.com. All that needs to happen now is the Seahawks have to work out a trade with the Raiders.
Lynch retired after the 2015 season, and his rights are still held by the Seahawks. Seattle will likely get a low-round draft choice for Lynch, who will be 31 years old when the 2017 season begins.
Lynch is 888 yards from reaching 10,000 for his career, and that may be enough to get him a ticket to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, given that NFL offenses are now geared more toward the pass than the run.
