Marshawn Lynch has expressed interest in playing for Patriots

Howe still believes that if Lynch were to come out of retirement for any team, it would be the Raiders - but if that doesn't work out, perhaps the Patriots become a real possibility.

Marshawn Lynch update: He has privately expressed interest in playing for Patriots if talks break off with Raiders. Michael Giardi of CSN New England reported that the defending Super Bowl champs are open to bringing Lynch under one condition. Whether that comes to fruition remains to be seen, but this latest report certainly adds another layer of intrigue to Lynch's situation.

The Seahawks signed Lynch to a 2-year, $24 million extension prior to the 2015 season, in what should have kept him under contract through 2017.

Following their great season, the Raiders were unable to strike a longterm deal to stay in Oakland and will be moving to Los Angeles in a few years. Marshawn unretiring to play for his home team before they leave for (likely) good is a more emotional story and one that seems more aligned with Marshawn's persona.

For free-agent running back LeGarrette Blount, it's all getting pretty simple.

As it now stands, the front offices of the Seahawks and Raiders still haven't revealed any negotiations in regard to the former Pro Bowl running back. So if he's taking less money than he wants, it makes more sense to take less with the Patriots. It is well known, his return is to play for the Raiders. It has opened the door for the current Marshawn Lynch to Patriots narrative as well, keeping Beast Mode on the front page of the National Football League for a bit longer.
