Marshawn Lynch drops a hint about returning to NFL to play for Raiders
One tweet adds fuel to the rumors that Lynch wants to play for his hometown team
, the idea that Lynch could play for the Raiders continues to persist.
Lynch is assisting that persistence on social media, too, having retweeted someone who pointed out that he has a song called “Oakland Raiders” on a Spotify playlist. (Say that out loud, and welcome to 2017.)
This could, quite easily, be nothing. Again, it’s a Spotify playlist that Lynch created (we believe) with a song called “Oakland Raiders” on it. The playlist is actually from 2015, meaning that Lynch didn’t create it recently. He crafted it in between his final season and the final play of Super Bowl XLIX when he didn’t get the ball.
Lynch would retire from football a year later --. He’s spent the last year .
He’s still got money to worry about, though, which might be the biggest sticking point of all. Lynch can’t just come back to football and join the Raiders.
The Seahawks have to be willing to release him, , or the Raiders have to be willing to trade for him, which they probably won’t be willing to do.
Lynch is from Oakland and lives there now, so he’s probably dreamed about playing for the Raiders for a long time. Seeing Beast Mode rumble in the silver and black would be a fun sight, but there is still a lot that has to happen for Lynch to suit up for Oakland. No amount of tweets will change that.
