Carr: Marshawn Lynch on Raiders 'would be awesome'

Quarterback Derek Carr, though, expects the "true Raiders fans" to still support the team both before and after the move to Las Vegas.

Carr met with the media Monday and answered a question about whether the atmosphere in the Coliseum will be any different in response to National Football League owners approving the Raiders' relocation to Las Vegas.

"We're not going to split up like you've seen other cities do", he said.

"It just feels weird right now", said All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack, the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. I'm with you. I'm hurt, too. "The good thing is we do have time, but I'm not the type to wait until the last minute".

"Out of like 1,000 people, you're going to get one or two that have something to say and that's with everything", said the quarterback. I think that they realize that, that we still have some times that we can really enjoy here. If the two sides cannot come to an agreement before the draft, Rapoport believes the Raiders could look to add help from this year's deep class of runners, which could end their pursuit of Lynch.

Carson Park hosts annual Easter egg hunt
Around 45,000 eggs filled with candy were dropped from a helicopter to the delight of thousands of children in Canada on Saturday. Typically their Easter falls later than the mainstream Easter due to a different calendar, but for this year the dates line up.

"Yeah, they should be really excited", Carr said.

Oakland badly needs a power back and Lynch would be the ideal fit behind a mauling offensive line that was one of the best in football during the 2017 season. "I did absolutely everything I could to make sure I come back better, like Kobe [Bryant] said, 'come back better than ever.' I wanted to make sure that thing was going to be a non-factor when I started doing things again". "I think our fans will realize as the season gets closer that we're here and focused on the now". We let them know where we're at, what we're trying to do. Lynch will turn 31 on Saturday and the question over how much he has left in the tank for a runner who enjoys contact is a major question mark. But unfortunately, that won't make their departure any easier to deal with.

Some things still need to fall in place to shake Lynch out of his current holding pattern, but it sounds like it will be full speed ahead in Oakland if they should fall the right way.

In today's social media world, it's hard not to offend someone even with the most benign statement from a well-spoken individual like Carr, who gives cliché sound bites 90 percent of the time. I would've rooted for whichever crappy replacement team Philly eventually got.

Lynch, his agent Doug Hendrickson and the Raiders have been attempting to reach a deal with the understanding the Seahawks would still have to release or trade the running back for the return to become a reality.
