According to ESPN, the Raiders are "strongly considering the acquisition" of Lynch, who has a "Beast Mode" apparel store in Oakland, where he was born and raised.

When the Vikings chose to part ways with Peterson, it was expected that the five-time First-team All-Pro player will command the interest of many teams who want to contend for the championship.

Could a Marshawn Lynch to Oakland Raiders trade take place? He then verbalized his decision during a "60 Minutes" interview last June by saying, "I'm done".

The source doesn't indicate that hinging on the Oakland Raiders making a move for him, either. That would force the Seahawks to trade or release him, or possibly keep him if they choose, but Lynch has reportedly chosen a simpler approach to his potential National Football League return. Seattle general manager John Schneider and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie have a long relationship from working in the Packers' front office together.

Despite Lynch's announced retirement, there were several rumors last season that Lynch might want to return to playing, notably one from Pro Football Talk last September. Before that, Lynch had missed just one game in the four years before that. "I had a great time when I played but, you know, it's time for something new".

Lynch, who is originally from Oakland, was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in 2007, and played his final five seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.
