One early NFL retirement has come to an end after one season. Running back Marshawn Lynch is headed to his hometown Oakland to play for the Raiders after agreeing to terms on Friday. The Seahawks still hold Lynch's rights after he retired following the 2015 season, so a trade will have to be completed for him to officially join the Raiders.
Oakland lost leading rusher Latavius Murray this offseason, and while DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard showed good flashes as rookies, neither is a 15-to-20 carry per game back. Lynch will be 31 years old this season, but should have one of his best offensive lines in years to help him out. Lynch has 9,112 rushing yards in his career and can become the 30th back in NFL history to reach the 10,000-yard mark.
UPDATE: NFL insiders may have jumped the gun on this one.

The Saints were 2016's oldest team, and the Rams were once again the youngest. Are more rookies starting than ever before in the NFL? 2016 was the youngest season we have tracked yet.
