Marshawn Lynch told Raiders he plans to un-retire and play in Oakland

Marshawn Lynch visited the Oakland Raiders on Wednesday, with the permission of the Seattle Seahawks. While he was there, he reportedly told the Raiders he does, in fact, intend to un-retire and play again, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

Coinciding with this report, Seahawks general manager John Schneider made some comments Wednesday that indicates things could move quickly on this front.

Lynch has been rumored to be interested in returning and playing for the Raiders for weeks now. It appears at this time that it’s not a matter of “if” it’s going to happen but when.

Either Oakland will make a trade for Lynch and absorb his $9 million salary for 2017 or the Seahawks will release him.
