The running back has agreed to terms of a contract offered by the Raiders, his hometown team which he has been adamant about playing for ever since hinting making a comeback.

Since Lynch is still technically a Seattle Seahawk, the only thing keeping Lynch from signing on the dotted line of a contract with a Raiders logo atop it is a release, or the more probable of the scenarios, a trade, from his former team.
It appears as if the cryptic tweet Lynch sent out Thursday night was Raiders fans had hoped it was.
I'm Thankfull!!!! Yes Lawd!!!!
