Marshawn Lynch Has Begun The NFL Reinstatement Process, Wants To Play For The Raiders
The NFL’s most charming figure is back! Kinda!
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday the Seahawks and Raiders are expected to work out a trade for Beast Mode, but first Lynch must re-jig his contract, according to NFL.com. Lynch reportedly hopes to play for the Raiders or any team that cornerback Richard Sherman is on if he is traded away from the Seattle Seahawks. Lynch has visited the Raiders this offseason, trying to gauge what his role would be with the team.
Lynch is due $9 million this year, and the Raiders aren’t going to pay that much for a running back who turns 31 next week. Seattle barely has enough cap space to take on the 9 mill, so things could get interesting in the coming weeks.
Lynch last played in the NFL during the 2015 season with the Seahawks and rushed for 433 yards and three touchdowns in just seven games.
