Marshawn Lynch is going home. The retired Seattle Seahawks running back has been in negotiations with the Oakland Raiders for the last few weeks and, as per source, Lynch will be signing a two-year deal with the Raiders. Lynch announced his move to his hometown Raiders, he grew up and went to high school in Oakland before playing college ball at California-Berkeley, via Twitter.
What exactly “town bizzness breath on me.” means, I have no idea but this good news for anyone that is a fan of the National Football League, Skittles or ghost riding whips. The bad news, Lynch is a 31-year old running back that has been out of the NFL for over a year and a half, so who knows how productive he will be in 2017.
The other negative, Lynch is set to play for the Raiders in 2017 and 2018, which is before the Oakland Raiders move to Las Vegas. This is not good, in fact, this is very bad.
Las Vegas needs Marshawn Lynch more than Las Vegas needs the Raiders and I need a Marshawn Lynch Raiders jersey more than I need this Las Vegas Raiders hat that I ordered last week.
