Ever since reports surfaced on Friday that the Raiders were strongly considering acquiring retired running back Marshawn Lynch, punter Marquette King has been leading the recruiting pitch.
On Sunday morning, the Raiders punter made his latest attempt to luring the Oakland-native.
King tweeted a photo of himself taking a pair of cleats off a telephone line with the caption: "Aye
@MoneyLynch I got your cleats back 4 ya brah..."
On Friday, King sent two messages to Lynch.
Yoooo @MoneyLynch you kno you wanna kick it wit ya boy for a season 👀 stop playin!!!— Marquette King (@MarquetteKing) March 17, 2017
News of the Raiders' interest in Lynch was reported by ESPN. The former Cal star is still under Seahawks control through 2018. In order for the Raiders to acquire Lynch, they'd have to work out a trade with Seattle or have the Seahawks release the 30-year-old running back.
Lynch turns 31 in April. He compiled 9,112 rushing yards and 72 touchdowns in 10 NFL seasons. He struggled with injury in his final season, playing just seven games in 2015.
The Raiders are in need of a veteran running back after Latavius Murray signed with Minnesota last week.
