Marshawn Lynch Ready To Play Football For Another Year?
If you happen to be a Raiders fan, chances are good that you’ve been following the status of Marshawn Lynch.
For reasons that are as unique as Marshawn himself, everyone seems to have an opinion on where the soon-to-be 32 year-old running back belongs next year.
Considering Lynch already retired once, does he even want to come back for another year?
According to Vic Tafur of The Athletic, there’s a good chance (for now at least) that Lynch is interested in returning.
“Neither Hendrickson nor team sources are revealing what was discussed in the meetings, but it seems safe to assume that Lynch wants back in, especially considering he is close with new (and former Seahawks) offensive line coach Tom Cable.”
Lynch was probably the most consistent player on offense last season and with the exception of Khalil Mack, maybe the most productive player on the team – when he wasn’t suspended, of course.
There’s also the matter of Lynch’s impact on the locker room.
Did the culture of the locker room change when Lynch and others arrived in Oakland?
Or does former head coach Jack Del Rio deserve more of the ‘credit’ for allowing the Raiders’ locker room to stumble into last year’s newfound realm of dysfunction?
That’s probably a lot of what head coach Jon Gruden has been trying to determine for himself.
