on Apr 07, 2017 05:10 AM EDT
Two of the most talked about players this offseason are also part of today's NFL rumor roundup. The Seattle Seahawks finally reveal their asking price for star cornerback Richard Sherman while Marshawn Lynch moves closer to un-retirement.
Seahawks Have High Asking Price for Richard Sherman
According to NFL.com, the Seahawks have a really high asking price for Richard Sherman if teams want to acquire him. The Seattle front office is willing to talk if there is a first-round pick involved, as well as an additional draft pick and a very good player on a low contract.
The report also noted that the Seahawks are in no hurry to trade Richard Sherman and they do not necessarily need to deal him this offseason. The only good news for Seahawks fans is Sherman and the team still has a mutual respect for each other despite all the NFL rumors this offseason.
Marshawn Lynch Meets With Raiders, Head Coach Jack Del Rio
Jimmy Durkin of The Mercury News reported that Marshawn Lynch met with officials from the Raiders including head coach Jack Del Rio and star quarterback Derek Carr on Wednesday. Lynch informed his hometown team that he plans to un-retire and play for the Raiders.
"Beast Mode" is still under contract with the Seahawks despite retiring last year at Super Bowl 50. The Seahawks have to release or trade him so that he can suit up for his hometown team. Raiders fans should be thrilled that Seattle is open to dealing Lynch and they even gave him permission to meet Raiders officials.
Adrian Peterson to Meet With Saints Next Week
One of the biggest names in this year's free agency class is Adrian Peterson but he remains unsigned more than a month after the offseason officially started. Peterson already met with the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots but no offers were made.
According to NESN.com, the Saints will meet with Adrian Peterson sometime next week. New Orleans reportedly views "AP" as a complimentary starter to Mark Ingram. However, Peterson's age, injury history and his past child abuse case really affected his value in the market.
