Retired Seahawk Marshawn Lynch visits Oakland Raiders

Former NFL punter Pat McAfee was the first to break the news, which was followed by a montage of related reports from both Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter, among others.

Seahawks GM John Schneider said on ESPN Radio that he has spoken to Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie about Lynch possibly coming out of retirement.

Beast Mode's connection to Oakland is deep, so it's understandable why the 30-year-old running back would want play for the Raiders.

Henley wins Houston Open, Masters berth
Rickie Fowler and Luke List shared third at 16 under. "He played like I did the first two rounds", said Kang. "Wow. After a bogey on No. 9, Henley got right back on track with a birdie on the 10th.

The Seattle Seahawks still own Lynch's rights, so if Lynch were to un-retire, he would return to the Seahawks. "The dream union of The Oakland Raiders and Marshawn Lynch is right on the [expletive] fringe of happening". If the Raiders wanted to sign him, they may have to compensate the Seahawks with a trade, or Lynch would potentially have to structure a buyout from the Seahawks.

Lynch, who last played in 2015, turns 31 on April 22.

Lynch finished his nine-year National Football League career with 9,112 rushing yards and 74 touchdowns in 127 games, and another 1,979 receiving yards and nine TDs. Pairing Lynch with jitterbugs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard would complete Oakland's backfield.

Laurent Koscielny Injury "Certainly Serious" Says Arsene Wenger
West Ham face Arsenal at the Emirates on Wednesday, and are now six points clear of the relegation zone in 14th place. West Ham's recent history of transfer dealings doesn't exactly read like the work of a shrewd financial genius.

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

Lynch was one of the NFL's top running backs and most popular players for nine seasons.

Under terms of his existing contract, Lynch would be in line for a $9 million salary and cap hit in 2017.

LeBron, Cavs end rough March with 122-105 win over 76ers
It wasn't pretty, but the Cleveland Cavaliers got a much needed 135-130 win against the Indiana Pacers in double overtime. After the game, LeBron said he was in the wrong and apologized for his behavior. "But they got it back under control".

Last week, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he met with Lynch about a possible comeback and said the running back was "somewhat entertaining" the idea of it. "You've got to talk to him".
