Seattle Seahawks Agree To A Deal To Trade Marshawn Lynch To The Oakland Raiders

What excellent news to wake up to on this rainy Wednesday. Beast Mode is returning to the NFL.
Marshawn Lynch, the former Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks running back, is set to come out of retirement to play for the Oakland Raiders. His rights had to be traded to Oakland since they were owned by Seattle before his retirement.
Via ESPN:

Lynch and the Raiders have an agreement in place, according to league sources, and he is in Oakland’s training facility Wednesday to undergo a physical. Assuming he passes, the Raiders and Seahawks are expected to finalize the swap that would send Lynch to his hometown of Oakland.
Lynch had been in active negotiations with the Raiders over the past month after deciding to seek reinstatement to the NFL, league sources previously told ESPN’s Ed Werder.

Lynch, who was famously born and raised in Oakland, retired following the 2015 season. Lynch will be playing for the Raiders during their last two years in California before moving to Las Vegas.
Lynch, a five-time NFL Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro in 2012, led the NFL with 12 rushing touchdowns in 2013 and 13 rushing touchdowns in 2014 and ran for at least 1,200 yards in four straight seasons from 2011 through 2014.
