Report: Marshawn Lynch coming out of retirement to join Raiders

According to NFL Network, Marshawn Lynch may be coming out of retirement so that he can play for his hometown.

Lynch’s reps have reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders, which is expected to become official on Wednesday after a trade with the Seattle Seahawks.

Fox Sports reported that as part of the deal, the Seahawks will trade their sixth-round pick for the Raiders’ fifth-round pick for the upcoming 2018 draft.

Since Lynch hasn’t played since the 2015 season, he will need to pass a physical in order to be allowed to play. If he does, he will have a base salary of $3 million with a $2 million incentive if he can gain 1,000 yards, with the maximum set at $8.5 million.
