Seahawks, Raiders agree on Marshawn Lynch deal

Beast Mode will bring No. 24 with him to the Raiders, even though that was Charles Woodson's "retired" number.

Marshawn Lynch's representatives and the Raiders have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, and the Seahawks have nailed down the trade that will send the five-time Pro Bowler to Oakland.

The Raiders announced Wednesday they will also get Seattle's sixth-round draft choice in 2018 while sending their fifth-round pick in 2018 to the Seahawks.

Lynch tweeted Wednesday that "It's time" for him to head to his hometown.

The draft-compensation agreement comes after the Raiders and Lynch agreed to a 2017 contract that will pay him $3 million in base salary with a $2 million bonus if he rushes for 1,000 yards. Max value of the deal is $8.5 million.

The deal involving future picks came together, NFL.com reported, because both "teams didn't want any uncertainty surrounding this year's picks so close to the start of the draft."

Lynch also eventually must file papers with the NFL to "unretire."
