Lynch visits Raiders amid talk of comeback

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Seahawks gave Lynch and the Raiders clearance to meet and Lynch told the Raiders he does intend to un-retire.

It was former National Football League punter Pat McAfee who first reported that Lynch was going to be meeting with the Oakland Raiders, but it isn't just as simple as signing with them. RB is my favorite position, Marshawn Lynch is my favorite RB and the Oakland Raiders are my favorite team.

There has been speculation for months now, but it appears as if Lynch is seriously thinking of coming out of retirement and getting back into the NFL.

While Lynch is retired, he is still under contract with the Seahawks.

Rapoport reports the Seahawks cleared Lynch to visit the Raiders for what was described as a "fact-finding" mission.

If Lynch did return, however, Carroll didn't rule out the possibility of him returning to Seattle. In seven games he rushed for 417 yards on 111 attempts. Earlier this offseason, they let Latavius Murray sign with the Minnesota Vikings and were said to have considered Adrian Peterson, though nothing has unfolded.

The Seahawks still retain rights to the former Cal star following his five Pro Bowl seasons in Seattle before his retirement in 2015. He may be a high-upside second option if the Raiders draft another running back or believe in last year's backups DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard.

The A's didn't pursue that plan, and it didn't go much further.

"I have a pal from Oakland who just told me that Beast Mode is officially in the Raiders practice facility chatting with team officials", McAfee wrote.
