Marshawn Lynch's agent shares complex message on the RB's potential return

Marshawn Lynch's agent discusses the running back's desire to return to football.

Marshawn Lynch retired after the 2015 season, but rumors have circulated surrounding Lynch's possible return for the 2017 season.

Lynch's agent, Doug Hendrickson, said Lynch "does miss football," but he isn't sure if Lynch will return to the field next year.

"He's one of the most unique guys I've ever been with in my life," Hendrickson said Monday. "Marshawn, it wouldn't shock me in three days 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.'"

Hendrickson said Lynch is set financially, and it's difficult to tell whether he really wants to play again.

"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."

The Oakland Raiders have expressed interest in Lynch, and they would need the Seattle Seahawks to either release him or trade him since they own his rights. The Raiders lost starting running back Latavius Murray to the Minnesota Vikings, so they are in need of a running back.

Lynch will be 31 next season, but he might be worth the risk if the Raiders can sign him to a team-friendly deal. The Raiders were among the best teams in the AFC last season, and they will be expected to be among the top teams in the league again next year.
