Retired running back Marshawn Lynch may have interest in the New England Patriots if talks with the Oakland Raiders break off. I know, I can't believe it took so long for the team from Boston to be a rumored destination for whatever big name free agent is now being discussed. It seems much more likely that if Lynch indeed does unretire he would join the Oakland Raiders, whom he met with earlier this month. Michael Giardi of CSN New England reported that the defending Super Bowl champs are open to bringing Lynch under one condition. When Lynch played for the Seahawks, he could fly home to Oakland every week.
Yet, Marshawn coming back to the National Football League for the sole objective of getting another Super Bowl ring doesn't seem legit. We don't know if this will impact Lynch if he does make an official return. They all now have Super Bowl rings.

Now, there are some issues with Marshawn's return. He's not a young man anymore. The ex-Seahawks' running back was in the Raiders' building and it was head coach Jack Del Rio's decision. He was coming off a very unproductive season that was marred by inconsistency and injuries.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Would Seahawks general manager John Schneider even be willing to do Lynch the type of favor that would be necessary to get the running back to an East Coast team? Seeking a deal in these new England Patriots rumors might lose in some core supporters.
