Before adding Marshawn Lynch on Wednesday, it looked like the Raiders were going to go into the 2017 season with a running back depth chart that consisted of an undrafted free agent (Jalen Richard), a former fifth-round pick (DeAndre Washington) and a guy named Taiwan Jones.

Sure, the Raiders could’ve also added someone in the draft, but there’s no guarantee a rookie would’ve been able to contribute right away in Oakland. What I’m saying is that it was pretty clear the Raiders really needed Lynch, and it appears his new teammates feel the same way, too.

After the Lynch deal was announced, several Raiders players dropped what they were doing and went straight to Twitter to let everyone know how excited they were to see Oakland beef up its depth chart at running back with the addition of Beast Mode.
