OAKLAND, Calif. – Are we about to see the return of the Beast?

ESPN reported Friday morning that the Oakland Raiders are “strongly considering” making a move to acquire retired former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.

Because Lynch retired while still under contract with the Seahawks, the Raiders would have to work out a trade with Seattle.

The Raiders recently lost their starting running back, when Latavius Murray signed with the Minnesota Vikings.

“It could really happen,” ESPN’s source reportedly said.
