"With me being from here and continuing to be here, it was my opportunity to get to see somebody that actually did from where they from and for the team that they probably idolized".
Just to play in Oakland is a dream come true or something like that.
While most assumed that Lynch's return was as much about a championship as it was to play for his hometown team, Lynch made it clear that his decision was "more about Oakland", during media availability Tuesday, before going on to explain what made his decision final was "when [he] found out [the Raiders] were leaving". "I mean, you'd understand why it's so big for me to come and play".
Will this candor with the media be the start of a new, cooperative Beast Mode in Oakland? The Raiders are scheduled to relocate to Las Vegas in 2020, but they could leave earlier. He was drafted 12th overall by the Buffalo Bills in 2007 and joined the Seahawks in 2010. "That's good what they've got going on... but I have a whole new Oakland behind me, though".
Lynch continued to stress the importance of being a symbol of hope for the city of Oakland, allowing the people there to watch somebody perform from the area. "The billboards are for the commercial people, but when you get outside, and you walk in the cracks, you get to find out what's real".
And to hear Lynch tell it, returning to Oakland was the biggest factor in ending a one-year retirement, even more so than a potential Super Bowl run with an up-and-coming team.
I don't think it's no different. "At the end of the day, I still walk outside".
Asked by a reporter what he thought about joining a good team that's "ready to take the next step", Lynch began his response by saying how he has the whole city behind him. He had double digits in touchdown runs every season from 2011 to 2014, and his 51 TDs on the ground are the most in the National Football League since 2011 even though he played just seven games in 2015 and was retired last season. Prior to that he was one of the game's top running backs with more than 1,200 yards rushing in each of the previous four seasons. But I got a whole new Oakland behind me.
