OAKLAND (KRON)– The Oakland Raiders have officially announced Wednesday that the team has acquired Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch is coming out of retirement after agreeing on a two-year deal with the Raiders that paved the way for a trade to his hometown team in Oakland.

Lynch passed a physical Wednesday and agreed to a restructured two-year contract. Those were the final steps needed before Seattle could trade his rights along with a 2018 sixth-round pick to the Raiders for a 2018 fifth-rounder.

Lynch also must apply to the NFL for reinstatement from the retired list before he can play with the Raiders.

Lynch joins the Raiders after nine seasons with the Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills.

After attending Oakland Technical High School, Lynch played three seasons at UC Berkeley (2004-06), leaving ranked second in school history with 3,230 rushing yards in 35 games. In 2005 and 2006, he posted consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons and was named the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year in 2006.
