Marshawn Lynch's return to the National Football League after a 20-month absence could be finalized as soon as Wednesday. His retirement from the game will not last long after all.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (24) sits on the bench during the fourth quarter of a 29-13 Seattle victory against the San Francisco 49ers at CenturyLink Field. Instead, he will be playing for a different team for the first time in years. Then he got permission from the Seahawks to talk to the Raiders about that comeback.

While coach Jack Del Rio said that he's positive that Lynch will join the Raiders, the team is willing to walk away from a potential deal if no deal is made in the coming days, according to Albert Breer of The MMQB.

In February, the company said it hired NASA aircraft engineer Mark Moore to work on Uber Elevate, its flying vehicle initiative . It said initial networks would be set up in the U.S. city of Dallas and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Before Lynch can be traded, his salary has to be re-negotiated and the Raiders have to come to a deal with the Seahawks, who now own his rights. They have apparently been able to clear that up.

According to NFL.com, the Seattle and Oakland head offices have agreed to compensation in order to make a trade happen between the two sides.

Earlier this month, Lynch visited Oakland's training facility and reportedly told the team he wanted to come out of retirement.

To acquire Lynch, Oakland dealt its fifth-round pick in the 2018 draft and received the Seahawks' 2018 sixth-round pick in return. Tafur said Lynch is "balking at taking less than half". Rapoport reported that Lynch is expected to return to Oakland on Wednesday to complete his physical.

If Lynch doesn't stop yanking McKenzie's chain, he's going to find that he not only will not be earning $4.5 million this year, he won't be earning $3 million from the Raiders either.

Lynch, 30, is an Oakland native, and Bay Area fan favorite after attending and staring for Cal from 2004-2006. He may not get to play in Las Vegas with the team. The Raiders now have Taiwan Jones and DeAndre Washington in the backfield. He had a few things to say, "He's one heck of a football player, and I hope to play with him". "... Of course, anyone would want Marshawn Lynch, any quarterback in the NFL. If we can add another back, we will".
