"It's going to feel good for him," Peters said of Lynch playing for the Oakland Raiders, per Jimmy Durkin of the Mercury News. "It's going to be a good feeling, It's going to be a good feeling for Oakland."
However, the good vibes also came with a warning.
"But when we come here, we're going to beat the dog s--t out of him," Peters added.
Lynch, who retired at the end of the 2015 season, returned to the NFL this offseason so he could play for the Raiders. The veteran running back grew up in Oakland and went to school at the University of California, thereby building plenty of roots in the Bay Area.
While his addition provided a boost to the city before the franchise leaves for Las Vegas, Peters will apparently only support him for 14 games next regular season.
The Raiders host the Chiefs on Oct. 19 for a Thursday night game and will travel to Kansas City on Dec. 10.
He will also have a friend-turned-enemy in quarterback Josh Johnson when the Raiders face the New York Giants on Dec. 3.
"It's going to be great for the organization," the Oakland native said. "But when they see us, that's another story though."
