Last season, Marshawn Lynch came back from his second retirement to sign with one of his former teams, the Seattle Seahawks, for their playoff push.

in an interview with comedian Conan O’Brien, the running back said he would consider playing this season for a contender. He said he has received some calls from interested teams recently.

Lynch said it basically has to be a guarantee to go to the Super Bowl to get him to return to the field. Of course, the only way for that to happen would be for Lynch to sign with a team just before the Super Bowl.

But if Lynch decides to come back earlier, would you want the Las Vegas Raiders to show interest? Lynch, 34, played for the Raiders in 2017-18 and he knows coach Jon Gruden’s system.

It wouldn’t be a tough transition. The question is whether the 7-5 Raiders need Lynch, especially if starter Josh Jacobs returns at full form from his ankle injury. The Raiders like backups Devontae Booker and Jalen Richard and fullback Alec Ingold provides some juice in short yardage.

Of course, Beast Mode is a special case, so there would have to be some consideration.

Please take our poll on whether you would be interested in a Raiders-Lynch reunion and give your reasons why in the comment section below. Thanks for playing along.
