NFL still doesn't get Las Vegas, even with Raiders

Lynch has two years remaining on his deal with the Seahawks. Oakland could ignore Seattle's trade ideas and simply wait for the league to act on a request for reinstatement from Lynch, if he truly wants to play in 2017. These players would need to be dealt for before or during the draft, seeing as the other teams would likely require picks in return.

Lynch, a five-time Pro Bowler, has not played since a January 17, 2016, playoff loss to Carolina in which he gained only 20 yards on six carries.

Lynch, who turns 31 this month, signed a three-year, $31 million contract with Seattle in 2015 that would pay him approximately $9 million in 2017 if he came out of retirement.

John Madden, who made his mark on NFL football as coach of the Oakland Raiders well before becoming a household TV analyst and video game maven, is unhappy with the team's planned move to Las Vegas.

Most forget that Lynch looked like a shell of his former self during his final season in Seattle, running for 417 yards before being shut down after seven games with a sports hernia injury. Then Lynch would be free to sign a new deal with the Raiders. Seattle put him on the reserve/retired list, thus retaining his rights.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Lynch's agents have received permission to discuss contract details with the Raiders. He still has strong ties to the area through his Beast Mode company and would be a welcome addition for a fan base still stung by the team's upcoming move to Las Vegas for the 2020 season. That is a sum of $2.5 million, for the season he was retired.

Ensure a trade between the Seahawks and Raiders.
