Raiders considering acquiring Marshawn Lynch

Over his nine-year career, Lynch scored 74 touchdowns and ran for 9,112 yards. Meanwhile, he likes McKenzie and would be sending Lynch to another conference.

But Lynch's retirement a year ago always seemed like a soft decision, and if a return to play for the Raiders is at all on his radar the subject had to be brought up. With only 5-foot-8 change-of-pace running backs Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington left on their roster, the Raiders nearly certainly will be going after a running back at some point between now and training camp.

The Oakland Raiders are looking for a proven running back, and that could include former Seattle Seahawks star Marshawn Lynch.

"I believe of all the backs that's out there, I believe he's probably the best fit for the Raiders".

Lynch, who turns 31 in April, announced his retirement from professional football with a memorable tweet on February 7, 2016. The Seattle Seahawks still control his rights, and if he elected to return, they'd have to either cut, trade, or keep him. If he lands another 1,000 yard season he will be on the top 20 list for backs. In addition, he played his college football for the California Golden Bears, at nearby Berkeley.

More news on Lynch as it comes in. He could be polishing off his monstrous legacy. Lynch has made noncommittal noises before, so it's plausible. Lynch, 30, is reportedly still in good shape and has debated making a comeback to the gridiron.
