Troy Vincent, the executive vice president of NFL football operations tweeted Tuesday that the league is going to make it clear what celebrations are appropriate for players moving forward.
Player celebrations became a topic of discussion last season after several players were penalized and fined for their actions after scoring touchdowns or making big plays. Many players complained that they weren’t warned ahead of time of what’s right and wrong.
“It could really happen,” a source told ESPN.
The Seahawks still have rights to Lynch — he’s on their reserve/retired list — so his availability would come via trade or release.
Lynch, who turns 31 in April, has “thought about playing” and is “in shape,” according to NFL.com. Lynch grew up in Oakland, so the Raiders can present themselves as a tempting, convenient team on which Beast Mode can end his career.
Lynch would make sense for the Raiders in the same way free-agent Adrian Peterson would.
Wrote SN’s Vinnie Iyer about the possibility of Peterson in Oakland: “Not only would Peterson fit what the Raiders want to do on offense behind a powerful Cheap Jerseys Epl run-blocking line, but their depth at running back — DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard — means Peterson would not be needed as a contributor in the passing game, just as a power runner.”
Lynch, who is 13 months younger than Peterson, is a five-time Pro Bowler and a 2012 All-Pro selection. He rushed for 2,144 yards and 74 touchdowns in nine seasons with the Bills and Seahawks.
