RENTON Unlike with Marshawn Lynch’s will-he/won’t-he saga, there is no upcoming deadline for the Seahawks to trade Richard Sherman or else move on. That time has already passed, Seattle general manager John Schneider says. He said Monday that Sherman reported to team headquarters along with fellow defensive backs Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas for the first time this offseason for the conditioning phase of Seahawks workouts, and that the oddly open trade talk the GM has had about his three-time All-Pro cornerback is pretty much done. “Right now, we’ve kind of moved past it,” Schneider said, moments before Seahawks owner Paul Allen walked through the front door here at the Virginia Mason Athletic

One idea they’re considering is moving their home clubhouse into the space that currently serves as the Raiders locker room, which would more than double the current space they have.

McKenzie left several doors cracked during a Friday pre-draft presser, saying Lynch’s presence wouldn’t stop him from drafting a rusher, not having the Oakland native wouldn’t guarantee it, and
Just a month after Las Vegas learned that it'll welcome its second professional sports franchise, the Oakland Raiders, a recent interview with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred has people talking about a third organization. The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Manfred is open to moving either the Oakland Athletics or Tampa Bay Rays to Las Vegas if either team can't negotiate new stadium deals. “If we were looking at relocation,” Manfred said, “Las Vegas would be on the list.” The move doesn't solely rely on relocation. There's the possibility of the MLB adding an expansion team in the future and Las Vegas would be on their short list of cities. “Until the Tampa Bay and Oakland situations are settled,
Oakland general manager Reggie McKenzie would like some resolution before the draft next week on whether running back Marshawn Lynch wants to come out of retirement and be traded to the Raiders. Lynch retired following the 2015 season and still has a contract with the Seattle Seahawks. Lynch met with the Raiders earlier this month to talk about a possible return but nothing has been finalized.
