The agent of Marshawn Lynch is unsure if he will come out of retirement to join the Oakland Raiders.
The Seattle Seahawks own the NFL rights to Lynch and he'd have to petition the NFL to return and then be released or traded.
“Well, in all sincerity, Marshawn’s been in Canada,” agent Doug Hendrickson told KNBR Monday. “I’m due to see him this week. So he and I have not spoken about this at all. So it was the media who took the ball and ran with it. He’s one of the most unique guys I’ve ever been with in my life.
“Marshawn, it wouldn’t shock me if he says, 'Hey, I want to play.’ It wouldn’t shock me if he says, 'Nah, I don’t know where this came from. I don’t want to play.’ ”
According to Hendrickson, money won’t be the biggest issue with regard to a comeback.
“He doesn’t spend any of the money he’s made. He’s got a lot of money,” Hendrickson said. “He does miss football. No question. He loves the game of football. He’s 30. But until I meet with him this week, you know, I don’t know what his mindset is. He’s the kind of guy that can shift by the hour.”
