The report was also denied by Lynch’s agent, Doug Hendrickson, and other Bay Area media.
The purpose of this website, which bears responsibility for passing along the story, has always been to promote accurate stories and in this case that wasn’t what happened.
The writer of the Lynch report had broken a number of detailed reports within the past six weeks, most notably the news on Jon Gruden’s impending hire and details surrounding Jack Del Rio’s firing – all of which were later reported by more mainstream news outlets.
This was a portion of Friday’s retraction and apology from Scott Winter, who wrote the original story…
Despite relying on multiple sources for this information, the veracity of the claim could not be verified after further editorial review. The story has been removed from our site and we apologize to the parties involved for the error, including Mr. Lynch.
Given the report that Lynch has met with Gruden on several occasions, the 31 year-old is evidently at least open to the idea of returning next season.
Equally as important, the Raiders are obviously still open to bringing him back.
