Raiders negotiating with RB Marshawn Lynch

14 April, 2017, 10:50 | Author: Nora May

Earlier this week, reports indicated Lynch was interested in playing for the New England Patriots if things didn't work out with the Raiders.

Lynch, aka Beast mode, has rushed for over 9,000 yards in his nine-year career, and has racked up 74 touchdowns.

The Seahawks still hold Lynch's rights but allowed him to visit the Raiders last week. When questioned about the veracity of the rumors on Twitter, Werder responded: "Among reasons Lynch has been waiting was to see whether Sherman traded and whether that team needed RB".

"Yeah, I have a great relationship with Reggie McKenzie, who is the general manager of the Raiders".

They must be super pals.

Sherman would have to be traded, but the rumor mill is suggesting that a trade sending Sherman somewhere could be in the works at some point as well.

Lynch, 31 next week, wants to play for his hometown team and the Raiders need a big running back to replace Latavius Murray, who signed with the Vikings. Seattle has zero interest or ability to carry Lynch on its cap for this year.

If the Seahawks and Raiders work out a trade for Lynch, Lynch doesn't have to file a letter with the National Football League asking to be reinstated.

Lynch can be traded without filing papers to be reinstated off the reserve/retired list, though he would eventually have to file those papers to be activated to Oakland's active roster.

As SB Nation's Seahawks blog Field Gulls noted, the easiest route would be that the Seahawks release him and ask for the return on the bonus money. His agents have permission to rework his deal.

Madden said the Raiders' pending move to Las Vegas hurts more than when they went to Los Angeles in 1982 "because of the finality of it".
