Marshawn Lynch, 33, and the Seattle Seahawks reunite after the two sides agree to terms on Monday. The contract terms are for the remainder of this season only. The deal came in lite of the injuries to the Seahawks backfield after Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise suffered season-ending injuries.
Lynch rushed for 376 yards and three touchdowns in six games with the Raiders last season. He has not been on a roster this season but had yet to file for retirement.
“He’s had plenty of time to be working and get ready in case something came up, and I’m anxious to see him when we get him here,” Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle earlier on Monday. “There’s a lot of history here that’s great history. There was nobody that ever amplified the kind of mentality and toughness that we like to play with, so if we get a chance to get the Beast back on the field, we’ll see how that works out.”

Lynch spent six years of his career with Seattle where he rushed for 6,347 yards, 57 touchdowns and won a Super Bowl with the team in 2014.
Seattle also signed former running back Robert Turbin Monday to help aid the injury-filled backfield. Seattle prepares for their showdown against the San Francisco 49ners for a chance for No. 1 seed in the NFC.
