Oakland Raiders Plan To Recruit Marshawn Lynch This Season? Will The Seahawks Trade The Beast Mode?
Will Marshawn Lynch, the "Beast Mode", return to the grounds especially in the jersey of Oakland Raiders? The recent developments suggest so, as there are speculations regarding a possible comeback. Lynch retired after the 2015 season in the wake of injuries, and the NFL Insider Ian Rapoport pointed out the possibility of his return through the Raiders. Now, even Raider's punter Marquette King is planning to give a rookie treatment for Lynch if he returns.
Though the news has spread about his possible return, there is no confirmation on whether the Raiders contacted Lynch or not. Also, it is not sure whether he is interested in making a return to the field. Incidentally, his last team Seattle Seahawks still holds Lynch's rights, and the team has to decide if they want to trade him. Interestingly, the news is spreading in such a way that his recruitment is imminent and could be seen on the side of Raiders.

Even things were getting a funny side when Raiders punter Marquette King responded to the questions through a Twitter post. It stated that if Lynch goes to the team, King is ready to give the Beast Mode a rookie treatment. In reality, many believe that if the Raiders give an option to him, he might return to the grounds because Oakland is his hometown, and he loves the city. It is also reported that Seahawks would be ready to trade him for a better price if he comes back to the game.
However, all these calculations are of no use, if he wishes to continue to stay away from the ground. Lynch actually visited Seahawks general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll on Thursday, and this leads to further speculations about his return. Since Lynch is just 30 years old - a career peak age for many players, if he plans to make a comeback, he can make wonders in the game.
