The San Francisco Chronicle reports the Raiders are offering Marshawn Lynch a $3 million salary.

Lynch wants closer to $5 million. It explains what’s been holding up talks between the sides. The Raiders expect to reach a deal with Lynch before the draft.
Apr 21 - 6:02 PM

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie implied that the draft is the team's deadline for signing Marshawn Lynch.

"At some point, you would like to know," said McKenzie. "Prior to the draft is that point." Coach Jack Del Rio said "every indication" is that Lynch is "excited" to play for Raiders, but the sides still have a few hurdles to clear before a deal is reached. Once that happens, the Raiders and Seahawks will have to agree on compensation. Talks should pick up in the coming days now that Oakland has established a firm timeline for signing Lynch.

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Seahawks GM John Schneider downplayed the chances of Richard Sherman getting traded.

"Right now, I don't think the odds are very good," Schneider said. "But if somebody comes cruising along and something happens, and we do something, it happens." Schneider is correct that a trade remains unlikely, but it's remarkable how openly the Seahawks continue to talk about dealing their star corner. We wouldn't rule anything out ahead of next week's draft.

Tyler Lockett (broken leg) believes he'll be ready for training camp.

It's an extremely aggressive timeline for Lockett's devastating Christmas Eve injury. Coach Pete Carroll has previously identified Week 1 as the goal. Even if Lockett is ready for camp, he could be held out of the preseason.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Raiders are "willing to walk away from a potential deal" with Marshawn Lynch.

This suggests the Raiders are only willing to sign Lynch on their terms and could help explain why the comeback has hit a snare. On the positive side, Breer reports the meeting between the two sides went well and the Raiders "were impressed with the shape [Lynch is] in." NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggested the draft is the deadline for something to happen, so we should know Lynch's fate within the next week.

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo reports "nobody has come close to meeting" the Seahawks' asking price of a first- and third-round pick for Richard Sherman.

Per Garofolo, were a trade to take place, it would likely be during the first or second night of the draft. The odds continue to be billed as low that Sherman gets dealt, but the fact that things have gotten and stayed this public suggests a fairly strong possibility.

Seahawks re-signed RBs Troymaine Pope and Terrence Magee.

Both players were exclusive rights free agents. A second-year UDFA, Pope carried the ball 11 times last season before suffering a high-ankle sprain. He'll try to nail down one of the final spots on Seattle's 53-man roster in camp.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports Richard Sherman will not attend the Seahawks' voluntary workouts this week.

This will be blown out of proportion because of the trade talk surrounding Sherman, but the reality is many veterans choose to skip voluntary work every year. Breer reports Sherman will report to the team in "early/mid-May, before OTAs" begin. Despite the noise, it still seems unlikely Sherman is traded.
Apr 18 - 12:54 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the draft could be the "real deadline" for the Raiders and Marshawn Lynch to work out a deal.

If the two sides cannot come to an agreement before the draft, Rapoport believes the Raiders could look to add help from this year's deep class of runners, which could end their pursuit of Lynch. It sounds like mostly conjecture from RapSheet, but considering how strangely this situation has played out so far, conjecture might be all we have. It still feels likely Lynch plays for the Raiders in 2017.

Dion Jordan's one-year deal with the Seahawks contains no guaranteed money.

The $640,000 deal contains a $25,000 workout bonus on top of a $615,000 salary. It is basically a minimum deal for the former first-round pick, and it will cost Seattle almost nothing to cut him in camp. This is a smart, low-cost move from the Seahawks.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia believes there's "absolutely an opportunity" for WR Paul Richardson to earn more snaps this season.

After Tyler Lockett went down with a season-ending injury in Week 16, Richardson became the biggest beneficiary as the No. 3 receiver. He played 66.9 percent of the offensive snaps the final four games of the season, including the playoffs, and caught 15-of-19 targets for 213 yards and two touchdowns in that span. Richardson will push Jermaine Kearse for snaps in three-wide sets.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Raiders have yet to reach a deal with Marshawn Lynch.

It's an update on an earlier report. PFT's Mike Florio says the sides are "not even close." The Raiders are in the process of working out terms in Lynch's contract. Seattle will get compensation for Lynch once a deal is reached.
Apr 14 - 5:31 PM

Sports Illustrated's Michael Silver reports the Raiders have reached a deal with Marshawn Lynch.

The Seahawks still hold Lynch's rights, so in order to join the Raiders, Seattle and Oakland will need to work out a trade. It may take a few days for the sides to agree on compensation, but Lynch to the Raiders is happening. The 30-year-old should slide in as the lead back for his hometown Raiders, but it's fair to wonder how effective he'll be after a year away from football. Lynch was tremendous in 2014 but struggled with injuries and was outplayed by rookie Thomas Rawls in 2015. Beast Mode makes for a high-risk, high-reward fantasy option.
Apr 14 - 3:50 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Marshawn Lynch's "short-term deal" with the Raiders will include "heavy incentives."

That's far from s surprise. No matter how badly the Raiders want Lynch, they understand he's a 31-year-old back (this month) who spent 2016 out of the league. Lynch also struggled through injury and bouts of ineffectiveness in 2015. His addition, while a big name, would be far from a slam dunk.
Apr 13 - 1:50 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Marshawn Lynch is expected to be traded to the Raiders.

RapSheet adds the trade is contingent on Lynch reworking his deal, but it all seems like a formality at this point. If it all works out, Lynch should be one of the more interesting fantasy discussion this summer. Considering Latavius Murray managed top-13 performances each of the last two seasons, Lynch's upside in a quality offense behind a great line is undeniable. That said, he will be 31 this month, did not play football last season, and sat out most of 2015 because of injury. The upside alone has to put him in the RB2 tier, but there is a good chance Lynch is over-drafted.
