Marshawn Lynch is in Play - Raiders wants to interrupt his Retirement

Marshawn Lynch

Marshawn Lynch is being lured out of retirement, allegedly by the Oakland Raiders.  Lynch has enjoyed a single season of retirement and is 31-years-old and has 9,112 career rushing yards.  A successful return would place him in rarified space with some of the greats. 

A reputable source has dropped a dime on Lynches career opportunities.  He retired from the Seahawks at the close of the 2015 season averaging 4 yards per carry and pretty beat up body.  He is still under contract with the Seahawks and the club would have to decide to keep him, cut him, or trade him and any deal except keep him would clear the books for $9 million for the season.

If he decides to return it is predicted – his jersey would sell off the shelves providing he breaks 10,000 yards rushing.

Floyd Mayweather announced that he was officially out of retirement and urged, Conor McGregor “make this sh** happen quickly.  Let’s get it on in June.  Mayweather, turned the world on its ear when he retired at 49-0, winning championship belts in five separate categories. 

He has recently pushed to get into the ring with UFC Champion Connor McGregor in a boxing match he recently said, “You’re the B side, I’m the A side. We’re not here to cry about money. I’m tired of all this crying about money and talking about you want to fight. You blowing smoke up everybody’s ass. If you want to fight, sign the paperwork, let’s do it.”

Floyd also admitted that part of this is to call what he perceives as a bluff from the Irishman, meaning we shouldn’t even get our hops up according to recent reports.

The LA Lakers now have the second worst record among the 30 teams that make the National Basketball Association.  While they are in rebuild mode, they are not going anywhere fast. 

The Phoenix Suns unwound the Lakers their conference mates on Thursday night 122-110 with D’Angelo Russell knocking down 28 points.   The loss leaves the Lakers with a winning percentage of .308 – and a record of 20-45, not impressive for a legendary franchise.

Coach Luke Walton said, “I think teams feel like when they play us right now, that we’re kind of a soft team, that they can come in and get their offensive numbers against us.”

Interestingly, Byron Scott said the same thing two years ago. 

Just recently, Magic Johnson got the call to head Basketball Operations, with the promise to bring change to the organization.

The Dallas Cowboy’s 11 game win streak is broken.  On Sunday, the New York Giants snapped the longest running streak in professional football with a 10-7 win over their divisional rivals. 

In a much-needed win over ‘America’s Team,’ the Giants are proving to have what it takes to bring home the big wins.  Despite offensive woes Eli Manning had this to say, "We know we still have a long journey ahead. We're still fighting for a playoff spot. We have some tough games ahead."

Wunderkind Dak Prescott threw two interceptions in Sunday night’s game while Manning dittoed the effort with three turnovers of his own. 

New York has a lot to improve upon on the offensive side of the ball, but the Football Gods smiled in the Giants Sunday keeping hope alive for the 9-4 giants, pushing the Cowboys to 11-2 for the season.
