Report: Marshawn Lynch could still return to Raiders
Don’t close the door on a potential Marshawn Lynch return to the Oakland Raiders.
According to Steve Wyche of NFL Network, Lynch would be willing to play another season with the Raiders if the team decides that it wants him back.

Oakland’s running back situation is in flux right now. First-round draft pick Josh Jacobs figures to play a significant role, but Isaiah Crowell suffered a devastating injury that has already ended his season. They’ve brought Doug Martin back into the fold as a result, but it’s unclear whether they’re comfortable relying on him as well.
It sounded this week like Lynch was retiring for good. That may not be the case, but it remains to be seen how desperately the Raiders want him back.
