By the end of the day, retired Seattle Seahawks Marshawn Lynch could be a member of the Oakland Raiders.
NFL.com reports that the Raiders and Seahawks didn't want uncertainty with draft picks so close to Thursday's draft.
Earlier this month, Lynch visited Oakland’s training facility and reportedly told the team he wanted to come out of retirement.
The Seattle Times reported that he made the visit with the Seahawks’ permission.
Signing with the Raiders would give Lynch a chance to finish his career with his hometown team, even as they prepare for a move to Las Vegas.
Lynch grew up in Oakland, and lives there still. He opened his first Beast Mode apparel store there last year.
