Marshawn Lynch??

In general, yes it is. Bell won't be, though. My real worry with Bell is that while you get an undeniably very good RB, you probably don't get particularly good value for money when you sign him as he's going to be the highest paid back in the league.

I do agree that Martin fits our offense in general better than Lynch does, but I do have worries about Martin from a ball security standpoint.

At this point, I'm pretty flexible on what we do at the RB position. Of all the options available, I can get behind any of them really. If it's Lynch, I'd be ok with it, but not ecstatic. Exact same feelings with Martin. Even with LeVeon Bell, while he would play at a higher level than the other two, his salary would bother me. I think RB is one of the lesser worries we have, and there's no definite yes or no moves that we could make at it from all the options available, imo.

His value won't be what he thinks it is!

It will be if somebody with lots of cap room decide they really want him, and there's always someone out there overpaying the big FAs. I hope it's not us. I don't think it will be either.

Martin ran hard and looked good in spurts but the fumbles will kill us. He is replaceable. Keep Richard and draft rb in 4th and sign rb

Considering we want to look long term, I say move on. Lynch was amazing for us. He broke more tackles than anyone else. But we need a pass catching back. Either resign martin cheap or draft a day 2 back. I'd rather not spend a draft pick on a RB who I don't think can be special. Josh Jacobs and Montgomery are the 2 backs next year who are truly dynamic for me.

Sounds like Lynch could still be in play for next season. Thoughts?

Pass. The position needs a face lift. Move on from these aging backs. Rebuild the right way

I think “if it works out” means if we’re still in Oakland. I love the guy but I do think we need a more explosive and versatile back. I love lynch, probably one of my favorite players of the last decade, but I agree with bp. As good as he looked last year, it’s time to move on.
