Marshawn Lynch: Raiders or nothing for Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch: Raiders or nothing for Marshawn Lynch

A person familiar with the visit says Lynch came to the facility on Wednesday to meet with Raiders officials.

What a story it would be for Marshawn to come out of retirement, and play for his hometown team in Oakland.

Oakland lost starter Latavius Murray to the Minnesota Vikings in free agency, and now have DeAndre Washington as their starting back. The Seahawks would have to trade or release him.

Lynch took previous year off after playing the last six seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.

Things move quickly in the National Football League and if this visit is any indication, Lynch and the Raiders are doing their homework before pulling the trigger. Fact-finding mission... Raiders have many things to check out, including how Marshawn Lynch entering the young locker room works.

The Seahawks now hold the rights to Lynch, and would have to either release or trade him before he could be acquired by another team. Lynch could pair with second-year backs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard to form a three-headed backfield behind a stout offensive line.

Marshawn Lynch coming out of retirement would mean a salary cap hit of $9 million for the upcoming season and a base salary of $7 million for 2018.

Many believed the "final hurdle" would have been Lynch making a final decision or the Seahawks giving the OK.

In nine seasons as a pro, Lynch gained 9,112 yards on the ground, scoring 74 TDs and earning five trips to the Pro Bowl.

Additionally, Lynch's agent Doug Hendrickson said in March that Lynch is subject to change his mind at any moment. Considering the Seahawks still hold his rights, they won't want to do that as they're looking to get something in return for letting him go.
