Raiders Remain Interested In Acquiring Marshawn Lynch

Apr 21, 2017 7:08 PM

The Oakland Raiders remain interested in acquiring Marshawn Lynch from the Seattle Seahawks.

"At some point you'd like to know and prior to the draft is that point," Reggie McKenzie said Friday during a media conference to preview the draft. "Our door is open and we're not shutting the door until that time, pretty much.

"Never going to say never, but the door is still open."

There's the issue of Lynch's rights still being owned by the Seattle Seahawks and Lynch, should he be acquired by Oakland, agreeing to more of an incentive-based contract since his current deal has him due a salary cap number of $9 million in 2017 and a base salary of $7 million in 2018.

Seahawks Don't Expect To Trade Richard Sherman

Apr 21, 2017 9:33 AM

The Seattle Seahawks will continue to listen to offers for Richard Sherman, but they no longer anticipate moving the cornerback.

"Right now, I don't think the odds (of a trade) are very good," John Schneider told KIRO-AM in Seattle. "But if somebody comes cruising along and something happens, and we do something, it happens."

The Seahawks have been in contact with Sherman about the process.

"We have constant communication with him. I talked to him this evening," Schneider said. "So it's cool. Everything's fine. I just think that the only reason we would do it is to basically create some cap room and try to become a younger football team. But that's just one option."

Raiders, Seahawks Expected To Work Out Marshawn Lynch Trade

Apr 14, 2017 8:53 AM

The Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders are expected to work out a trade involving Marshawn Lynch, but the running back must first re-work his contract.

According to a report, Lynch's agents have permission from the Seahawks to discuss adjusting his deal with the Raiders. Lynch signed a three-year, $31 million contract in 2015, which would pay approximately $9 million in 2017 if he came out of retirement. Oakland would want to lower that number.

Marshawn Lynch Has Started Reinstatement Process

Apr 13, 2017 8:28 AM

Marshawn Lynch has started the reinstatement process with the NFL in hopes of playing for the Oakland Raiders, Ed Werder reports.

Once the running back files his reinstatement papers, his $9 million cap hit would be added to the Seattle Seahawks' ledger. That would likely lead to a quick resolution because the Seahawks don't have the cap space to take Lynch on.

In addition to the Raiders, Lynch has also been linked to the New England Patriots.

Seahawks Have Steep Asking Price For Richard Sherman

Apr 12, 2017 8:37 AM

The Seattle Seahawks are open to trading Richard Sherman, but they have placed a steep asking price on the cornerback.

The Seahawks are looking for a first-round pick and potentially a good player on a cheap contract, according to a report.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported Tuesday that Seattle is looking for something huge.

"We're talking Darrelle Revis Jets-to-Buccaneers type of deal," Garafolo said. "That's what's going to get this thing done."

Just prior to the 2013 NFL Draft, the Jets traded Revis to Tampa Bay in exchange for the No. 13 overall selection and a conditional 2014 fourth-round pick.

Richard Sherman Requested Trade From Seahawks

Apr 7, 2017 1:07 PM

The Seattle Seahawks somewhat unusually confirmed that they had discussed a trade involving Richard Sherman.

The reason for the Seahawks' transparency may be because Sherman was the one that approached him about a trade.

"It has been my understanding all along that Richard Sherman was the one who initiated this. He was the one that wanted to be traded initially," said Adam Schefter. "The Seahawks were obliging him and his request."

Sherman had an outburst at Pete Carroll on the sidelines during a game in December this season.

John Schneider confirmed the Seattle Seahawks have discussed trading Richard Sherman.

"What you've seen lately in the news is real," Schneider said on the "Brock and Salk" show on 710 ESPN Seattle. "That's on both sides. It's just open communication. He knows what's going on. We know what's going on.

"I don't know if anything would ever happen. But like I tell people all the time, 98 percent of the things we're involved with, we don't follow through with. But at least we've opened that door, gone down the road and seen what's behind door A or door B."

Schneider said he's spoken to Sherman about the situation.

"This isn't a secret like it just came out of nowhere," Schneider said. "People find things out, and we're not going to lie to each other. We're not going to BS each other. It's going to be all laid out."
