It seems Bruce Irvin isn’t the only Oakland Raiders’ player trying to help with player recruitment as punter Marquette King is trying convince Marshawn Lynch to come out of retirement.
Following the pattern of Irvin’s free agency Tweets trying to attract free agents to come play for the Raiders, King has taken it up a notch with the current frenzy on whether Lynch would actually come out of retirement.
Via his Twitter account, King has made it public he wants Lynch on his team and has posted Tweets attempting to convince him to come back to play for his native Oakland.

Mr. King has quite the sense of humor suggesting Lynch would carry his pads in practice, all in good fun I’m sure. Judging from Raider Nation’s reaction to King’s Tweets many share his enthusiasm in trying to lure “Beast Mode” to the Silver and Black; the current trending hashtag of #BeastModeInOakland is proof of this.

We all remember Lynch’s official retirement Tweet that went viral depicting his cleats literally getting hanged from an electrical pole’s cables, obviously King has done his homework on this one.
