Raiders reportedly interested in acquiring Marshawn Lynch

Lynch didn't play last season after announcing his retirement in February 2016. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported the Raiders are reluctant to give up much for Lynch, at the most likely offering a conditional seventh-rounder. Meanwhile, he likes McKenzie and would be sending Lynch to another conference.

Raiders radio announcer Greg Papa hinted at the team bringing in a retired running back on his show Thursday (March 16). They have added some prominent pieces to their offensive game.

There are rumors that the 31-year-old rusher could land a deal from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Oakland Raiders but only if he is willing to become a role player.

Lynch is from Oakland and spent his college career at the University of California, Berkeley. The Seattle Seahawks still control his rights, and if he elected to return, they'd have to either cut, trade, or keep him.

Obviously, he would have to be released, or they would have to make a trade for him, but Skip, I like this. Like his mother, Delisa Lynch had done years before at Tech, Marshawn was a standout in every sport he played there. Even if he has been gone for a year, he has the numbers to prove it. If he lands another 1,000 yard season he will be on the top 20 list for backs.

Perhaps the most memorable part of Lynch's glorious Silver Bowl performance was his postgame interview.

He would have to be playing for the right team, and receiving the right numbers. Lynch has made noncommittal noises before, so it's plausible. Is Lynch capable of making a comeback?
