Retired Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has agreed to contract terms with the Raiders, according to a tweet from sports journalist Michael Silver.

The trade with the Seahawks has not yet been completed.

Seahawks writer Brady Henderson said on Twitter that the Seahawks still hold Lynch's rights.

"Re-worked deal is presumably a precursor to a trade as his contract includes a $9M base salary for 2017," Henderson wrote.

Earlier this month, Lynch reportedly told the Raiders that he intends to un-retire and play again, according to an NFL insider.

League sources told ESPN in mid-March that the Raiders were trying to acquire Lynch.

Seattle, which has Lynch under contract for another two years, could decide to release Lynch and allow him to sign with Oakland, according to ESPN. The sports network reported that Lynch has considered coming out of retirement, and playing for his hometown team could influence his decision.

Though Lynch himself has yet to publicly announce or deny his intention to return to the NFL, he fueled the rumors that he wants to come out of retirement.

Amid the March ESPN speculation of his return, Lynch retweeted:

Lynch is from Oakland and has said in the past he’d like to play for his home team. Lynch famously announced his retirement with a tweet showing a picture of cleats over a phone wire with a peace out emoji.
