Rumors have been connecting Marshawn Lynch to the Oakland Raiders for weeks. Now it seems like an agreement between the veteran running back and the AFC contender is inevitable.

According to multiple sources, Lynch was at the Raiders facility on Wednesday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that a deal will eventually happen this offseason.

Lynch’s desire to join his hometown team in Oakland is merely the first stage of the process. The running back’s contract is still held by the Seattle Seahawks, who would have to release Lynch or work out a trade with the Raiders.

Speaking on KIRO-AM in Seattle on Wednesday, Seahawks general manager John Schneider said moving Lynch to Oakland would go “in a smooth manner,” due to his relationship with Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie, via the Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta. Schneider added that Lynch would only want to return to play for the Raiders.

Beast Mode’s connection to Oakland is deep, so it’s understandable why the 30-year-old running back would want play for the Raiders.

There are still several hurdles to leap before Lynch lands in Oakland, but Beast Mode’s desire to return is a big first step.
