Marshawn Lynch and Seahawks agree to deal, ESPN reports

RENTON, Wash. (KGO) -- The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a deal with former star running back Marshawn Lynch, according to ESPN.



ESPN Senior NFL Insider Adam Schefter tweeted Monday night that the deal is for this year only which is the last regular-season game and the postseason.

Coach Pete Carroll said earlier that reports are Lynch is in good shape.

Lynch has not played in more than a year. His last game was Week 6 of last season with the Oakland Raiders.

Lynch spent parts of six seasons with the Seahawks before spending the 2017-18 seasons playing for the Oakland Raiders.

Just over a week ago the Oakland native was handing out tequila shots at the tailgate for the Raiders last home game, according to fans on Twitter with photo evidence.
