Raiders, Seahawks agree on Marshawn Lynch deal
- The Oakland Raiders have secured RB Marshawn Lynch and Seattle’s sixth-round pick in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the draft, with only a physical remaining to make Lynch’s return official.
- Lynch leads all NFL backs in broken tackles since 2013, despite retiring prior to the 2016 season and playing only half of 2015 due to injuries.
- Over his entire career, Lynch has broken a tackle once every 4.5 carries, a figure that would have led the league in 2016.
- Oakland’s backs in 2016 combined to break 52 tackles as a unit.
