Marshawn Lynch hasn’t sent unretirement letter yet

In response to a report from ESPN that running back Marshawn Lynh has “begun [the] NFL reinstatement process,” PFT asked the league what the “reinstatement process” is for a guy on the reserve/retired list.

Via league spokesman Brian McCarthy, Lynch needs only to send a letter to the Commissioner expressing an intent to return.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Lynch has not yet sent that letter. So if that’s the only step needed to begin the “reinstatement process,” it’s unclear what Lynch has done to begin the reinstatement process.

    ” So if that’s the only step needed to begin the “reinstatement process,” it’s unclear what Lynch has done to begin the reinstatement process.”

    It is however completely clear that without saying anything himself he’s got everyone else talking about it.

    “Started” means he visited Raiders and said he was interested. He told Seahawks same and they have acknowledged the willingness to work it out. The paperwork will likely occur at the moment all is worked out by the parties. Everyone wants this to work out. Good for Raiders, good for Lynch and Seahawks get something for a retired player. Win/win/win.

    Good luck Lynch. Go Hawks.

    Well, the back of the box says “Stop smoking, drink this, and wait at least 72 hours.”

    All he’s done so far is click on the paper clip guy in the bottom right hand corner: “It looks like you are writing an unretirement letter. Can I help?”

    If traded, Reportedly the reinstatement letter is not needed. That explains delay for that. Seahawks are much nicer to deal with, without the cap issue present. Everyone getting along for now. Hopefully that remains so.

    Who has the time to sit and write a letter? He’s too busy out smacking the cell phones out of kids hands. #rolemodel

    He’s got to work on his people skills!

    Is that because he hasn’t had a chance to get up off the chair that you just interviewed him in ten seconds ago?

    no letter needed- just a signed contract

    He better do this before he is traded to the Raiders, or it could get lost for a year like aldon smiths.
