If a man is spotted walking around the Bay Area in an Oakland Raiders helmet, there’s a good chance that it’s the team’s newest acquisition, Marshawn Lynch.
The Raiders released a video spotlighting some of the recent rumors regarding Lynch coming to the team. It concluded with a shot of him at the team facility, putting a helmet on.

Even after Lynch had left the facility, the helmet did not leave his head.

Needless to say, Lynch is excited about getting to play for his hometown team. He’s not the only member of his family to be excited, as his mother also shared her joy in the news.
At this point, we’re setting the odds at no more than 50-50 that Lynch will remove his helmet before the 2017 season starts.
