Marshawn Lynch will be rocking his familiar No. 24 when he suits up for the Raiders in the fall.
The former Seahawks running back even got the blessing of Raiders great Charles Woodson, according to Lynch's mother.
Marshawn Lynch officially will wear No. 24 with the Raiders. Charles Woodson approved the jersey assignment, Lynch's mother told @957thegame— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) April 26, 2017
Woodson donned the No. 24 jersey during both his stints with the Raiders for a collective 11 seasons until he retired in 2015.
Even though the Raiders technically don't have retired numbers, Lynch will be the first player in Oakland since Woodson to wear No. 24.
Lynch wore No. 24 during his six-year tenure with the Seahawks and No. 23 with the Bills, who drafted him in 2007. In Seattle, his former teammates kept the No. 24 jersey off limits during the 2016 season out of respect for Lynch, by order of wide receiver Doug Baldwin.
