Raiders | Marshawn Lynch deal agreed to (Wed Apr 26, 08:29 AM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has agreed to a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, April 26, and the two teams have agreed to compensation, according to sources. The NFL draft compensation will be a swap of late-round picks in 2018. The deal and swap are contingent on Lynch passing a physical. The one-year deal has a $3 million base salary with a chance to earn $2 million more if he reaches 1,000 yards. The max value of the contract is $8.5 million.

Raiders | Marshawn Lynch, Raiders still talking (Tue Apr 25, 11:34 AM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch and the Oakland Raiders are still talking about a revised contract, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider. 'Nothing really new,’’ Schneider said. 'They’re still talking. The steps after that were to be that if they came to an agreement, (Raiders GM) Reggie (McKenzie) and I would discuss a form of compensation.'

Our View: The deadline to get something done is likely Thursday or Friday during the 2017 NFL draft. If the Raiders can't work something out to add Lynch he may just stay retired in 2017.

Raiders | Marshawn Lynch has until draft day to sign (Fri Apr 21, 03:03 PM) - Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie hinted he wants a deal done with free-agent RB Marshawn Lynch no later than the start of the 2017 NFL Draft, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur.

Our View: There is a deadline in this situation, and the Seahawks need to accept. Lynch is still under Seattle's books and needs to be traded away or released to make a move to Oakland. He wants to play for his hometown Raiders and they'd be an even better offense with a guy like Lynch toting the rock. We want to see this happen...not because we're fans of the Raiders, but because we want to see Lynch in the NFL again.

NFL | Raiders-Beastmode union has deadline? (Tue Apr 18, 12:32 PM) - Retired RB Marshawn Lynch (Seahawks) has an agreement in place to join the Oakland Raiders, if the Seattle Seahawks trade his rights. However, the deal may have a deadline of the 2017 NFL Draft. Oakland could move on if it drafts a power back, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Our View: There are more than a few power backs the Raiders could go with if they can't get something done with Lynch. The story of Lynch going to Oakland (where he's a hometown hero) is great, but they've got to get something done or risk the deadline passing.
