Former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch wants to play for the Oakland Raiders, a source told The MMQB's Peter King.

King's report comes days after ESPN.com reported that the Raiders were strongly considering acquiring the five-time Pro Bowler.

Lynch retired in May 2016, but the Seahawks still own Lynch's rights after he was placed on the reserve/retired list. Any NFL team interested in signing him will have to acquire him or wait for his release.

“He [Lynch] really wants to play for the Raiders,” the source told King. “He also wants to do good things for his foundation in the area. This is a great chance to accomplish both things.”

Lynch, 30, last played in the NFL during the 2015 season with the Seahawks and appeared in seven games.
