Beast mode is back and will be playing in the silver and black this fall for the Oakland Raiders. That's if the Seahawks come to a deal with the Raiders to trade Lynch, which is expected to happen. After the Tony Romo ordeal I won't believe anything till it actually happens, although the necessary steps for Lynch to come back have been going smoothly. Something you can't say at all about the Tony Romo process. I expect a trade to be announced within the next 24 hours, there shouldn't be too many details to work out now.
The Seahawks won't get much for Lynch, however it's more than they would've got if he had just stay retired . Now, they'll probably end up getting an extra late round draft pick, I'd say 5th round or later at best. With the way Seattle drafts you never know that pick might end up being a valuable player down the road.
The Raiders are the real winners. They'll be getting a great running back at a discounted price. The terms of the deal haven't been announced yet, but I'm sure it'll be less than whatever they would've had to pay Latavius Murray to stay, and Lynch is way better than Murray. Lynch will also be running behind a great offensive line, something he didn't have the luxury of in Seattle. I expect him to do just fine, of course he'll have some early rust, but I expect him to return to beast mode after a couple of games. Lynch still has the most broken tackles since 2013 and he didn't even play last year, that just goes to show what a great running back he is when he's healthy. If he can stay on the field all year, expect the Raiders and Marshawn Lynch to have a ton of success this year.
