Marshawn Lynch made a decision to unretire when Raiders announced move to Las Vegas

Cavs not making any lineup changes for Game 3 of the Finals

The Oakland Raiders running back told reporters Wednesday he only made a decision to come out of retirement to play for the Raiders when he learned they would be leaving for Las Vegas, according to The San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur.

"It's always been something, being from Oakland, you want to play at home and have that opportunity", Lynch said in a press conference on Tuesday afternoon. "A lot of the kids here probably wont have an opportunity to see they idols [When the raiders leave]", the long time National Football League running back uttered. "Them staying (in Oakland) probably wouldn't have been so big for me to want to come and play". He grew up in the Bay Area and has had Raiders season tickets his entire life fostering his love for the NFL. The following week, Lynch visited the Raiders to talk about the possibility of coming out of retirement.

Lynch, a first-round draft pick of the Bills in 2007, was a Pro Bowler in 2008, but was traded to the Seahawks in 2010. This time, though, the hole feels deeper mostly because Kevin Durant is now leading a team seeking revenge after blowing a 3-1 lead to Cleveland in last years Finals.

Will this candor with the media be the start of a new, cooperative Beast Mode in Oakland?

¬ďA lot of people said we couldnt.

"It was heartfelt but at the end of the day I still walk outside", Lynch said. "That's good what they've got going on... but I have a whole new Oakland behind me, though". The billboards are for the commercial people. Now I get the opportunity to play here.




The Oakland Raiders' running back has displayed in the past that he is prone to cursing on live TV whether he realizes it or not and he displayed that same profane language live on Tuesday. Lynch said he wanted to play for the Raiders before they left town and he's well aware of the impact of his return within the community.

Objectively, this is an attractive time to join the Raiders.

I don't think it's no different. "Yeah, he hadn't really been an offseason attendee, but he showed it's important to him to integrate himself, not only in the offense, but just in the locker room and with the coaching staff".

While some fans have jettisoned their season tickets in protest, the Raiders have said their season tickets are sold out. He ran for 1,306 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014, but injuries limited him to just seven games in 2015.

The all-pro running back who played six seasons with the Seahawks and helped them win a Super Bowl, is almost as famous for his tight lips as he is for his bruising running style.

He has already become popular with his new teammates because of his fierce loyalty and willingness to joke around. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
