Beast Mode plotting a comeback?
The Oakland Raiders are reportedly trying to lure Marshawn Lynch out of retirement.
According to ESPN, because Lynch's NFL rights remain property of the Seahawks, the Raiders would have to work out a trade with Seattle to acquire Beast Mode, or hope that the Seahawks just release him, but there's a real chance we could see him on the field in the future.
The report also states that Lynch has seriously considered coming out of retirement and what better place to play than in his hometown?
Lynch, 30, retired after the 2015 season in which he missed nine regular season games and one playoff game due to surgery for an abdomen injury.
Lynch is 13 months younger than Peterson, hasn't been hit in over a year, is a local icon. Not a remotely crazy idea. https://t.co/b4lPp0U7Wp— Chris Sprow (@SprowESPN) March 17, 2017
