A trade still needs to be worked out between the Seahawks and Raiders, but coming to a contract agreement is a big step in the process. The two sides figure to be able to work out a deal, which will clear the path for him to join the Raiders.

Lynch last played in the NFL in 2015, when he started just seven games. He battled a hamstring injury and sports hernia that year, which limited his production to only 417 yards on 111 carries.

He fills a need at running back with Latavius Murray gone, but it remains to be seen how effective he'll be as the starter. After all, he hasn't played a snap in more than a year.
