Kansas City Chiefs cornerback and Oakland, CA native wishes new Raiders’ running back Marshawn Lynch well. That is when he’s not playing Peters’ Chiefs of course.
Marcus Peters, cornerback for the Kansas City Chiefs, is glad that his fellow Oakland native, running back Marshawn Lynch, will be donning the silver and black of the pair’s hometown football team in 2017.
Lynch, who played the first nine seasons of his NFL career with the Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks, came out of his 2015 retirement this year to play for the Oakland Raiders, returning to his Bay Area roots. The running back grew up in Oakland and attended the University of California, making him quite familiar with the Golden State.
“It’s going to feel good for him. It’s going to be a good feeling, It’s going to be a good feeling for Oakland,” Peters noted of Lynch’s Oakland return according to Jimmy Durkin of the Mercury News. However, that was when the division rival in Peters kicked in, following his statement up with: “But when we come here, we’re going to beat the dog s–t out of him.”
The Raiders host the Chiefs on Oct. 19 for a Thursday night game in the season’s first meeting. Oakland will then travel to Kansas City on Dec. 10 for the two clubs second meeting. Peter’s comments will add some more intrigue to the matchup between AFC West foes.
