However, ESPN reported in March the Raiders were considering acquiring Lynch's rights from the Seahawks.
Now retired running back Marshawn Lynch visited the Oakland Raiders' facility Wednesday, Indianapolis Colts punter-turned-Barstool Sports writer Pat McAfee reported, citing a "pal from Oakland". Although Seattle gave Oakland permission to talk to Lynch, he remains on the Seahawks' reserve/retired list, which means the Raiders can only trade for him, not sign him.
The 30-year-old Lynch, who turns 31 on April 22, is one season removed from an injury-riddled season that saw him only be able to suit up for seven games. He rushed for 9,112 yards and 74 touchdowns in nine National Football League seasons. In 2016, they combined for less than 1,000 yards, and the Raiders allowed leading rusher Latavius Murray to leave for the Minnesota Vikings in free agency.

Murphy is now the fourth person connected to Madoff to commit suicide in the years following the Ponzi scheme scandal. Another investor, William Foxton , 65, committed suicide in 2009 because he was ashamed of his financial status.
Luckily the Raiders have two complementary running backs in Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington.
But Carroll said he couldn't say how strong Lynch's interest is. The dream union of The Oakland Raiders and Marshawn Lynch is right on the f-cking fringe of happening.
The NFL and the Raiders are a business, which, at the end of the day, must do what is best for business. The A's didn't pursue that plan, and it didn't go much further. If he was going to return and play for the Raiders, Seattle would have to release him or the teams would need to work out some sort of compensation. One thing, at least, is certain: The remaining games in Oakland will be awkward and more than a little bit sad for local fans.
