Unlikely Marshawn Lynch comes out of retirement and plays for Oakland Raiders

Unlikely Marshawn Lynch comes out of retirement and plays for Oakland Raiders

According to a Monday morning report from Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, retired running back Marshawn Lynch will only return to the field if he is wearing silver and black so it appears.

That's when the rumors of former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, an Oakland native, signing with and ending his retirement began.

Lynch would also have to come out of retirement, though that may not be a big hurdle. The most important step is that Lynch announces he is returning to the NFL.

The first and perhaps largest obstacle for Lynch and the Raiders is the Seahawks still own the rights to Lynch, and he is on their reserve/retired list.

As soft as the reviews were, they didn't do much to depress turnout among older viewers who still read criticism. As a result, the movie has done especially well in enhanced formats that bring in ticket surcharges.

Is Marshawn Lynch really interested in an National Football League return? Lynch's contract still has those two years left on it, meaning the Seahawks remain in complete control of him from a playing standpoint. However, what would Seattle demand and would the Raiders agree?

Lynch was in Seattle Thursday, where he reportedly asked team officials for his release. On his existing deal he is owed $9 million.

All in all, Lynch averaged 3.8 yards per carry in 2015, his lowest total since the 2010 season by a pretty fair amount. However, it was speculated all season long that Lynch would ultimately un-retire while that never happened. Other running backs, such as Adrian Peterson and LeGarrette Blount, are still available in the free agent market. The result could be a lot of annoyed Seahawks fans, especially if Lynch refuses to play for the team and forces general manager John Schneider into a hard position. This could be another example of Lynch's marketing skills.
