Beast Mode has found a new home.
The former star running back is making a return to the NFL after hanging it up after an injury plagued 2015 season in which he only appeared in seven games.
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders have agreed to a trade that will send Marshawn Lynch to the bay area.
Lynch, who retired and sat out this past season, was still under Seahawks team control and could not sign with another team unless he was traded.
The deal will be official pending a physical which is supposed to happen later this afternoon. The deal is worth a reported 2 years in length.
The Raiders and Seahawks will swap late round picks in the 2018 draft as part of the agreement.
This is a solid move on the Raiders part to take a chance to see if Lynch has anything left in the tank. The Raiders lost Latvius Murray to the Minnesota Vikings earlier in the off-season and were left without a dependable running back on the roster.
Raiders fans will enjoy watching this knowing this guy plays for them now:
Lynch immediately moves into a starting role and will handle most of the first and second down plays for Oakland.
The Raiders who finished 12-4 a season ago were derailed by late season injuries to key players including star QB Derek Carr which led to an early postseason exit.
This season the Raiders are going for it all. The bay area craves a chance at a Superbowl and Lynch may be the piece that gets them there.
And hey as an NFL fan more of this is always good to see:
