Marshawn Lynch is set to come out of retirement and return to his hometown Raiders following a trade between the Seahawks and Oakland, with ESPN's Adam Schefter reporting that Lynch and the Raiders have agreed on a two-year contract.
Lynch announced his retirement during the Super Bowl in 2016. He played five full seasons in Seattle after starting his career in Buffalo. He joined the Seahawks through a trade during the 2010 season.
NFL players took to Twitter to react to the news of Beast Mode landing in Oakland. Lynch chimed in on Wednesday as well.
The Raiders fell just short of winning the AFC West last season after quarterback Derek Carr sustained a broken fibula late in the season. Without Carr, they lost to the Texans in the wild card round of the NFL playoffs.
