Marshawn Lynch In A Patriots Uniform?

Former Seattle Seahawks running back, Marshawn Lynch, has announced his interest in becoming an NFL player since a brief retirement in 2016. Lynch, also known as beast mode, was one of the most dominant running backs in the game while playing for Seattle. But unexpectedly, out of nowhere, Lynch retired after the 2016 season and did not suit up for this past year in the NFL.

Apparently, Lynch misses his old job and has been shopping teams he would like to join if he were to come back into the league. For a while, it appeared that the front runner for landing Lynch was the Oakland Raiders. In addition to Lynch being a native of Oakland, another factor that made this team a favorable destination for him was the success they had last season for the first time in years.

However, talks between the two have declined as the Raiders are now moving to Las Vegas. This move definitely shifted Lynch’s views towards joining this organization.

Now, he has turned looked for another team to join; and this time, it’s the New England Patriots.

Unlike a free agent, Lynch comes with a cost due to his unfulfilled contract in Seattle. Thus, any team who would like to acquire him would have to send compensation to the Seahawks in order to have the rights to sign him.

While the Patriots have pretty much every asset they need to make another super bowl run this upcoming season, the running back position is their only grey area. While they have one of the best running backs in the league in LaGarrette Blount, negotiations between him and the organization are ongoing and it’s a possibility they may not reach an agreement. CSN New England’s Mike Giardi has reported they two have mutual interest, the deal simply hasn’t been made yet.

The Patriots have nothing to worry about, however. Even if the Blount and Lynch deals don’t work out, there is still the option of signing veteran running back Adrian Peterson, who many think still have a few good years left in him

Regardless, New England, as they seem to be pretty much every year, will be a favorite to take home yet another super bowl this upcoming season.
