The Oakland Raiders and Marshawn Lynch have agreed to terms of a deal. He is at the Raiders training facility on Wednesday to take a physical.

If he passes a physical, he’ll be returning to his hometown team. The Raiders and Seattle Seahawks, who own his rights, would work out a trade.

The agreement is a two-year deal, according to ESPN‘s Adam Schefter.

An official announcement is expected to be announced by the end of the day. The teams have agreed to trade 2018 picks in the package.

According to Pro Football Talk, he’s expected to make a $3 million base with another $2 million in incentives should he reach 1,000 rushing yards. His deal could officially max out at $8.5 million.

This means that Lynch, who last played during the 2015 season, is officially out of retirement. He’ll also be playing for his hometown team — and also could help the team do some public relations work as fans were not happy with their plans to move to Las Vegas in the future.

Lynch will replace Latavius Murray, who signed a free agent contract with the Minnesota Vikings.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie needed to know Lynch’s plans prior to Thursday’s NFL Draft in Philadelphia. If he did not meet their deadline, the team was expected to go in another direction during the draft.
