Lynch visits Raiders amid talk of come­back

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

ALAMEDA, CALIF. | Re­tired run­ning back Mar­shawn Lynch vis­ited the Oak­land Raiders on Wed­nes­day as he de­cides whether to come back to the NFL and the team de­cides whether it wants to ac­quire the home­town fa­vorite.

A per­son fa­mil­iar with the visit says Lynch came to the fa­cil­ity to meet with Raiders of­fi­cials. The per­son spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause the visit wasn’t an­nounced by the team. The visit was first re­ported by re­cently re­tired In­di­anapo­lis punter Pat McAfee, who now writes for Barstool Sports.

Sea­hawks gen­eral man­ager John Schneider told a Seat­tle ra­dio sta­tion that he has dis­cussed a deal to send Lynch to Oak­land with Raiders gen­eral man­ager Reg­gie McKen­zie in case Lynch does come out of re­tire­ment.

Lynch re­tired fol­low­ing the 2015 sea­son. The Sea­hawks still hold his rights but would be un­likely to want to pay his $9 mil­lion for this year if he de­cides to come­back.
