It was just last week when retired NFL running back Marshawn Lynch told the Oakland Raiders that he eventually planned to un-retire so he could play for the team.

On Thursday, he began the process of delivering on that promise, according to Ed Werder of ESPN.com. He also stated that he could be interested in teaming with Richard Sherman elsewhere if the star Seahawks cornerback is traded.

Lynch would carry a $9MM cap hit for Seattle if reinstated.
