...this one rocks! :D

 

Supposedly, the Raiders (his hometown team) are trying to coax Marshawn out of retirement to play for them this season.

 

We heard something vague along these lines last year - and, of course, nothing came of it. For some reason though (I dunno why...really wishful thinking?), the story seems to have a bit more substance this time around.

 

At any rate, read...perchance, to dream:

While unlikely, I wouldn't rule anything out.

As the reports states, the Seahawks still have the rights to Lynch so he would have to be traded or released.

 

I think it would be a good fit for the Raiders... he's got less mileage than Adrian Peterson... 265 fewer touches.

That's assuming he has kept anywhere near football shape.

Is there any precedent for a running back coming back and having success comparable to Lynchs age?

Tim Hightower was out of football for quite some time. While he wasn't hugely relevant from a fantasy sense, I think that's arguably one of the best comparisons

Further reports suggest Lynch asked for his release from the Seahawks on Thursday...

This is interesting in the sense that...

If Lynch is in fact serious about returning to the NFL, he can effectively force the Seahawks's hand by simply applying for reinstatement no?

since he's owed 9 million it would seem so.

Don't see him being able to be the player he was if he indeed was to return.

Someone said the best comparison is T Hightower.

Age wise I would agree.

But Hightower left the game with 523 rushing att and Lynch left the game with 2145 rushing att.

I don't see him being able to come back at age 30 and to be a big factor.

Here is another article from earlier today with a bit more information about the story/rumor, from a Seattle beat writer with a reputation for being factual:

 

http://www.seattleti...marshawn-lynch/

 

...along with a couple of thoughts from others:

 

Bill BarnwellVerified account @billbarnwell

 

The Raiders waiting for the Seahawks to sign Eddie Lacy before leaking their interest in Marshawn Lynch is excellent trolling.

 

Danny KellyVerified account @DannyBKelly

 

Lynch behind that Raiders line would be a blast. Let's do this.

 

mike freemanVerified account @mikefreemanNFL

 

Marshawn going to the Raiders would be the greatest moment in the history of humankind.

Raiders finally getting the ship heading in the right direction, why take unnecessary chances spending money for old players.

The Raiders got the 26th pick in round 7. It''s their last one, number 247. I'd take that straight up for Lynch.
Wish him the best of luck, tell him someday he'll be in the Seahawks Ring Of Honor. And if the stars align, and we ever met in the superbowl, please don't run one in on us.

God damn R. We need to get some front office poitions.

I'd most likely put Paul Allen out of business and destroy the franchise. But dammit, this deal would be done!

Depends on what BM wants. And whether we extend Carr this season or next. Definitely doable.

Came across an interesting take from Mike Tanier, to read while we're waiting and hoping to hear any possible updates on the Marshawn Lynch situation.

 

Long ago, in the "before time," when Colin Kaepernick was just another starting quarterback and every detail of American life didn’t carry massive sociopolitical implications, Marshawn Lynch defied the NFL with the loudest silent protest in modern sports history...
