Marshawn Lynch: When s–t gets real, I’ll tell you


On Friday afternoon, Michael Silver of NFL Media reported that the Raiders had agreed to the terms of a reworked contract with running back Marshawn Lynch to set the stage for Lynch’s return to the NFL and departure from the Seahawks.

Word that an agreement isn’t quite in place yet has followed that report. Silver’s colleague Ian Rapoport and Albert Breer of both reported that there has not been an agreement, although both also indicated that there’s optimism one will be reached. Silver has also added an update to his earlier reporting to call the situation “fluid and ongoing.”

Lynch also weighed in on where things stand and appeared to confirm that any talks are still ongoing.

“If u kno me you kno my business is my business and if u don’t kno me that’s a fun fact for ya… when s–t get REAL I’ll let you kno!!!!” Lynch wrote on Twitter.

When and if an agreement is reached, the Seahawks and Raiders still need to agree on a trade for Lynch’s rights. Seahawks General Manager John Schneider said he expected talks on that front to go smoothly, but a final resolution doesn’t look imminent right now.

    We all realize that Lynch was pretty much done the last season he played and has taken an entire year off, right?

    Marshawn Lynch’s adventures on the Cal-Berkeley campus would have been the greatest reality TV show of all time.

    I know one thing. When the Raiders are on the 1 yard line with a SB win on the line, Beastmode is going to get the ball, every single time. And dat you kno!

    Hawks should trade Marshawn for rookie QB Connor Cook, and a high draft pick

    Tweeting about it only brings more attention to your “business” and to yourself.

    You say you like your privacy? Don’t broadcast yourself on social media.

    Marshawn Lynch is only going to be playing another year or two I highly doubt the Raiders will be going to the Super Bowl in that time.

    Twitter allows people the opportunity to wallow in their illiteracy.

    The defenses of DEN, KC and LA/SD just dropped about 5 spots each in the rankings. Dont cry, Andy!

    This is exactly what the Raiders don’t need in the media or the locker room.

    Class, all class……

  20. alfredogarciashead says: Apr 14, 2017 6:18 PM

    Marshawn should have his own reality show.

  21. fanfrommontreal says: Apr 14, 2017 6:26 PM

    Is he talking Ebonics?

  22. MichaelEdits says: Apr 14, 2017 6:32 PM

    Remember when he wouldn’t talk to the media? Ah, the good old days…

    There, I fixed it for ya.
    You’re welcome and have a nice day.

    Okay gutter mouth.
    I can’t stand Lynch even more than I can’t stand Richard Sherman.

  25. dawoger says: Apr 14, 2017 7:06 PM

    Lynch would be a master orator in minisoda.

  26. nomoreseasontix says: Apr 14, 2017 7:38 PM

    So… what I get from this is that Lynch is semi-literate and fully literate in street gibberish.
    I hope they don’t give up much for a beat up back. He’s not freaky worth that much. It’s just a story.

    Yeah….that’s not going to happen….

    To all NE fans. If this come true, Lynch playing for the Raiders, it will be the end of your dynasty. Just like the Cod would never run out. It’s the same for you. The bell is rolling for New England. The southies will be in an uproar. LMAO.

    If and when Marshawn comes out of retirement will be an amazing storyline to follow for the 2017-18 season.

    Considering he left the Seahawks after a nagging abdomen injury and he’s no longer in his twenties definitely makes a comeback story intriguing.

    His drop off in production for his last year (2015) was obviously due to his injury. Consequently, it’s highly likely that, if fully recovered, he can aggregate another 1000+ yards of rushing and receiving.

    But, after that? I don’t know. Beast Mode might not be sustainable post 30 years of age. According to, the last time a 30+ year old RB had 1,000+ rushing yard season was 1990 (James Brooks, Bengals).

    Lynch can easily supplement an additional two or three hundred yards in receiving to his stats and probably won’t be asked of a 1,000 rushing season.

    Last year the Raiders ranked sixth in rushing, which was done by committee. The bulk carried by Murray (700+), but Washington and Richard both doing their share of the workload (400+ each).

    Losing Latavius in free agency to the Vikings was substantial as he was a bruising back at 6’3″ and 230 lbs; both Washington and Richard are 5’8″ and just north of 200 lbs.

    The 5’11” 215 lb. Beast would be a nice reestablishment of a power back for the Raiders, but I don’t think that precludes McKenzie and Del Rio from drafting a bigger back somewhere after the third round.

    So, yes, while the official un-retiring of Lynch will be a fun storyline to look for, the re-retiring of Lynch seems like it may follow shortly thereafter.

    A rusty, 31 year old rb that hasnt played in over a year?? Man 30-50 Toadman Reg is getting desperate.
