SEATTLE – Should you brace yourself for the sight of Marshawn Lynch in a Raiders jersey?

Conflicting reports emerged Friday, as a tweet from Lynch and reports from KJR-AM’s Dave Mahler and former Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson contradicted a report from’s Michael Silver that Lynch and the Oakland Raiders had agreed to terms on a contract.

The deal has reportedly been close for weeks, with Lynch visiting the Raiders’ facility last week.

Silver had reported that all that remained was for the Seahawks to come to terms with the Raiders on a trade agreement, and that the Seahawks were caught off-guard by the news.

Ian Rapoport of reported that a trade “will happen.”
