Rumors of Marshawn Lynch coming back to the NFL have picked up steam in the last couple of weeks, as the Oakland native was recently spotted at the Raiders' practice facility.

Today, ESPN's Ed Werder has reported that Marshawn has official begun the NFL reinstatement process and also added that the former Seahawks running back could be open to playing for a team other than the Raiders, under one condition.

According to Werder, Marshawn is also waiting to see if Richard Sherman gets traded and would consider teaming up with him if that team needs a running back.
