According to multiple NFL and Oakland Raiders sources, the team agreed to a trade with the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday that will bring Oakland native and retired running back Marshawn Lynch back to the silver and black.

The deal will cost Raiders a couple late round picks in this year’s draft, however, details of the deal were not available at the time of publication. Lynch is currently in Haiti with some of his former Seahawk teammates who are building schools and houses, according to statements from the Seahawks.

Lynch will have to pass a physical by a Raiders team doctor when he gets back in order to finalize the deal. Lynch hasn’t played in a game since Jan. 17, 2016, which was a loss to the Carolina Panthers in the playoffs. Lynch originally visited the Raiders Alameda facility on April 5, according to multiple ESPN analysts; however, the two sides didn’t agree to terms until earlier this week.

Lynch is an Oakland native who opened a retail store on Broadway in downtown Oakland last year and also attended school in the Oakland Unified School District.
