Marshawn Lynch has passed a physical with the Oakland Raiders in advance of an official transaction that would land the running back with his hometown team, according to Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
The evaluation took place Wednesday morning after Lynch flew back into town from Haiti, where he was building houses and schools with former Seattle Seahawk teammates.
The physical – and Lynch officially filing for reinstatement into the league – were the only remaining hurdles for a deal that would see the Seahawks trade Lynch and a 2018 sixth-round pick to the Raiders for a fifth-round selection in 2018.
Lynch tweeted his excitement with joining the Raiders on Wednesday afternoon.
