Lynch, an Oakland native, retired from the National Football League in 2015, but has reportedly missed the game and would consider a comeback only if it was for his hometown team.

Former Colts punter Pat McAfee started the chaos by tweeting comments he heard from someone at the Raiders facility.

Seahawks GM John Schneider said on ESPN Radio that he has spoken to Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie about Lynch possibly coming out of retirement.

What a story it would be for Marshawn to come out of retirement, and play for his hometown team in Oakland. He still has strong ties to the area through his Beast Mode company and would be a welcome addition for a fan base still stung by the team's upcoming move to Las Vegas for the 2020 season. They lost Latavius Murray in free agency this offseason and are now lacking a power back of Lynch's caliber.




What's not clear is if the Seahawks plan to release Lynch, or force a trade with Oakland. The rookie duo combined for 31 carries and 110 rushing yards without scoring a touchdown. 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. Davis said he talked with the A's about doing a joint deal for two stadiums at the Coliseum site and selling them 20 percent of the Raiders, but they weren't interested in doing a joint deal there.

While the report that Lynch has stated his intentions to unretire is a significant development in his possible comeback, quite a bit would have to happen before it becomes a reality. Fact-finding mission... Raiders have many things to check out, including how Marshawn Lynch entering the young locker room works.

Under terms of his existing contract, Lynch would be in line for a $9 million salary and cap hit in 2017.
