ALAMEDA, Calif. – 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.

“At some point you’d like to know and prior to the draft is that point,” McKenzie said Friday. “You would like to know that. But our door is open and we’re not shutting the door until that time pretty much. Who knows after that? We’re not going to ever say never. But the door is still open.”

The Seahawks still hold Lynch’s rights but would be unlikely to want to pay his $9 million salary for this year if he decides to come back. They gave the Raiders permission to talk directly to Lynch, who met with coaches and front-office officials a few weeks ago about joining his hometown team.

“Every indication I got is he was excited to play for the Oakland Raiders,” Coach Jack Del Rio said.

BILLS: Buffalo claimed safety Trae Elston off waivers.

The Bills were awarded Elston a day after he was cut by Cleveland. Listed at 5-foot-11 and 193 pounds, Elston spent part of last season on the Browns’ practice squad. He was then signed by Cleveland to a reserve/future contract in January.

He has yet to play in an NFL game. Elston initially signed with New Orleans last year.

WASHINGTON: Running back Chris Thompson re-signed with the team.

He was a restricted free agent.

JAGUARS: Coach Doug Marrone said he’s had no contact with Branden Albert since the veteran left tackle decided to skip voluntary workouts.

Albert, tight end Marcedes Lewis and running back Corey Grant were the only players not in attendance for the first week of Jacksonville’s offseason conditioning program that began Monday.
