It doesn’t sound like Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider is going to stand in the way of Marshawn Lynch joining the Oakland Raiders.

With the retired running back reportedly visiting the Raiders on Wednesday, Schneider confirmed on ESPN 710 radio that Lynch and Oakland are “trying to figure things out,” according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.

Some speculated that the Seahawks wouldn’t be so willing to let the Raiders take their former power back, but because of the team’s relationship with Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie, Schneider says the move would go “in a smoother manner.”

The Seahawks gave permission to Lynch and the Raiders for Wednesday’s visit, according to Condotta.
