Speaking on KIRO-AM in Seattle on Wednesday, Seahawks general manager John Schneider said moving Lynch to Oakland would go "in a smooth manner", due to his relationship with Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie, via the Seattle Times' Bob Condotta.
However, ESPN reported in March the Raiders were considering acquiring Lynch's rights from the Seahawks. The Black Hole was the most incredible atmosphere I ever played in.
The Raiders are in need of a running back after losing Latavius Murray to the Minnesota Vikings in free agency. The Seahawks would have to trade or release him.
Lynch, who turns 31 later this month, announced his retirement from professional football on February 7, 2016.

Westbrook had the first ever flawless triple-double and the most points ever in a triple-double by the end of the month . Unlike Harden or Leonard, James is working with a rookie head coach and still delivering on expectations.
Luckily the Raiders have two complementary running backs in Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington. He has rushed for 9,112 yards and 74 touchdowns in nine National Football League seasons, though injury limited him to seven games in 2015, when he averaged 3.8 yards per carry.
Last week, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said that he recently met with Lynch and talked about the idea of him returning to the NFL.
While the report that Lynch has stated his intentions to unretire is a significant development in his possible comeback, quite a bit would have to happen before it becomes a reality.
The caveat to the pairing would be Lynch's ability to remain healthy after taking a year away from the NFL. Under his current contract, he'd be due a $9 million salary this year, which would make him the highest-paid running back now under contract in the NFL.
