An Oakland native, Lynch was quickly welcomed by Raider Nation and it wasn’t just because of his roots with the city. During his tenure with the team, the Raiders had a 10-22 record, but it was hardly the running back’s fault. Quite the contrary, Lynch was one of the few bright spots.

In 21 games with the Raiders, Lynch had 1,267 yards 10 touchdowns and averaged 4.3 yards per carry. In his first year, the running back had 891 yards and a touchdown. A groin injury cut his second season short and the team opted not to not bring him back.
In spite of playing just two seasons with the Raiders, Marshawn Lynch will continue to be a Raider Nation favorite and deservedly recognized with his inclusion in the All-Decade Team Offense.
