Should Raiders be concerned with mileage on Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch?

The Oakland Raiders are considering making a strong push to acquire the retired Marshawn Lynch from the Seattle Seahawks.

He will turn 31 on April 22.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, there is a "very good chance" that Lynch will end his one-year retirement.

Could a Marshawn Lynch to Oakland Raiders trade take place? Seattle general manager John Schneider and Oakland GM Reggie McKenzie are close friends dating to their time working together with the Green Bay Packers, which could help facilitate a deal. "I had a great time when I played but, you know, it's time for something new".

Still, Sturgeon's Scottish National Party does not hold an outright majority in the Scottish legislature. May is now free to invoke Article 50 of the EU's key treaty, triggering two years of exit negotiations.

But Lynch's retirement a year ago always seemed like a soft decision, and if a return to play for the Raiders is at all on his radar the subject had to be brought up.

The Seahawks still have rights to Lynch - he's on their reserve/retired list - so his availability would come via trade or release.

Lynch played nine seasons in the National Football League before calling it quits as one of the generation's best runners, finishing with 9,112 yards, 74 touchdowns and a Super Bowl XLVIII title with Seattle, where he was famous for his "Beastquake" runs that would leave CenturyLink Field rocking. Before that, Lynch had missed just one game in the four years before that. Lynch was a 5-foot-11, 200-pound running back/linebacker who led the Bulldogs to the Oakland Section championship with a performance for the ages at the Coliseum.
