Marshawn Lynch will be back on the Raiders for the 2018 season, the running back in line to receive a $1 million roster bonus Sunday, NFL Network reports.
The Raiders signed former Buccaneer Doug Martin on Thursday, but Lynch figures to be Oakland’s primary ball carrier for the second straight season.
Marshawn Lynch will remain a member of the #Raiders. Sources say he is receiving his $1M roster bonus on March 18, a clear sign he’ll be their feature back… if there was any question.
“Looking at the film in a game that I broadcasted on Christmas night, there’s no question he’s still a beast,” Gruden said, per the San Jose Mercury News. Lynch had 95 yards on 25 carries in Oakland’s 19-10 loss at the Eagles in that game. Over the 2017 season, Lynch carried the ball 207 times for 891 yards and seven touchdowns and caught 20 passes for 151 more yards.
Rays: Tampa Bay Rays placed 2B Brad Miller on the 10-day DL because of a strained left groin and selected RHP Ryan Weber’s contract from Triple-A Durham. … CF Kevin Kiermaier was in a walking boot and out of the lineup after bruising his right foot on Sunday.
Rays: LHP Blake Snell (0-1, 5.00 ERA) looks to bounce back after getting roughed up for five runs in 3 1/3 innings by the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

“The dog video, there’s a lot that goes into it, right? It was a crazy situation. I haven’t fallen into peer pressure my whole life, and they peer pressured me to go out here and get attacked by this dog.”
Ingram explained that he went through this activity with the dog several times, but on his final attempt he tried to put a spin move on the dog. He said the dog then horse-collared him to the ground.
But Ingram was fine in the end, and he said he got back up “like a champ.”
Meanwhile, that dog has proven it can tackle NFL athletes. Someone should definitely draft that dog, and that’s why we created a scouting report for it.
