Former NFL Running back Marshawn Lynch has helped thousands of fantasy football owners win leagues and cash prizes during his tenure in the league. The Running back broke records in Seattle helping the team win their first Superbowl. The star athlete was a leader of the team and earned respect from his peers, analyst, and executives. But in 2015 he decided to call it quits after he and the Seawhawks couldn’t reach a financial agreement about his salary.
Following his retirement Lynch was a steady fixture of social media with appearances of sporting events, hosting gigs and charity endeavors. But just one year later it looks like other teams might be willing to pick up where the Seahawks left off.
According to league sources Lynch was offered $10 million by the Oakland Raiders to play for one more season. The team lost running back Latavius Murray to the Vikings during Free Agency.
The potential pairing with Raiders and Lynch is a match made in heaven. Lynch was born and raised in Oakland. During his time in the league he spent his summers at home helping with his old community. He participated in coaching little league and giving away meals and turkeys during the holidays. The team also has one of the best offensive lines in the league and not to mention a budding superstar quarterback in Derek Carr.
