Marshawn Lynch gets it done, in non-contact* practice

Will this candor with the media be the start of a new, cooperative Beast Mode in Oakland?

When he signed with the Raiders prior to the draft, it was evident from his expression that he was living a childhood dream. But when we're talking a getting glimpse of Marshawn Lynch joining his new Oakland Raiders team, that constitutes legitimate hype.

As many of you know, Lynch grew up in Oakland, played his college ball at Cal, and wanted to play for the Raiders before they relocate to Las Vegas in 2020. That reasoning seems a bit odd until he explains it.

"Marshawn Lynch said coming back and playing in Oakland was in part because he knows the kids in Oakland will be losing the Raiders", NFL Network's James Palmer wrote on Twitter during Lynch's press conference.

Now in Oakland, Lynch recently generated a play that looks similar (absent the grabbing of the ding ding), if the play is viewed while squinting and acknowledging that multiple defenders opted not to aggressively attempt to stop Lynch from getting to the end zone.

A replacement for Colon in the starting rotation is expected to be announced in a couple of days, manager Brian Snitker said. Philadelphia logged nine hits with Howie Kendrick going 3-4 with a solo jack while Odubel Herrara driving in a pair.

Lynch said he feels the support of the city and its residents.

"To be honest, it was heartfelt, but then, at the end of the day, I still walk outside, so besides the billboards and all of that, I really just get out with the people", Lynch said.

The Raiders will remain in Oakland for at least the next two seasons while their Las Vegas stadium is built. The team's 12-4 record last season and the recent addition of Lynch has fans believing the Raiders have a real shot at the AFC championship in the 2017-2018 season. His team is much larger. "I've got all of Oakland behind me", Lynch said.

Lynch also added that while playing at home is a big deal, the urge wouldn't likely have been there if the team was staying. that if the Raiders were staying, he probably wouldn't have come back.

"It aint like, I'm coming to y'all city and I'm riding with y'all". You are born and raised and bred ... running down them alleyways ... "So every home game I get to come to this [expletive] I'm probably going to be riding with the whole town".
