Reggie McKenzie should just go ahead and make my Raiders to the Super Bowl prediction true by taking Beastmode off the Seahawks hands.
This has to happen!
The NFL’s opening kickoff is off to a great start with news that Marshawn Lynch is considering a return to the NFL according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Lynch is currently “up in the air” about returning to the NFL. The source said that Week Four or Week Five could be the hot spots for a possible unretirement.
The Seahawks still hold Lynch’s rights, since he was placed on the reserve-retired list. If he files the appropriate paperwork necessary to end his retirement, the Seahawks will have to decide whether to welcome him back onto the active roster, to trade him, or to cut him.
If he returns before the trade deadline, which comes on the Tuesday after Week Eight, Lynch would become a free agent, if released. After the trade deadline, he would pass through waivers, if the Seahawks cut him. (Obviously, at that point they couldn’t trade him.)
Lynch is due $9 million this season if he returns, and there’s been rumors Lynch could be trying to get the Seahawks to release him — thus allowing him to sign where ever he pleases.
Like Oakland, as he leads the young Raiders over the hump deep in January.
