    Getty Josh McDaniels of the Las Vegas Raiders. Now that the dust has settled from the Las Vegas Raiders‘ first preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, more information has come to light regarding a possible Josh Jacobs trade. The Pro Bowl running back surprisingly played in the game’s first two drives. Starting running backs don’t typically see any snaps in the preseason, especially ones with injury histories like Jacobs. It was deduced that the Raiders were shopping the running back and that’s why he played. The team drafted Zamir White in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft so it’s clear they might not have plans for Jacobs past this season. However, it doesn’t look like Las Vegas is ready to move on quite yet. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has reported that the Raiders aren’t shopping Jacobs and head coach Josh McDaniels shut down any trade rumors. “No,” McDaniels said of the trade rumors on Monday. “J.J.’s a guy that, obviously, we know what he’s done. And as I said after the game, I really do believe...
    Getty Eagles WR Jalen Reagor made a leaping 21-yard catch in Week 12, but he dropped two potential game-winning touchdowns. Jalen Reagor has been flying under the radar and grinding it out at Philadelphia Eagles training camp, mostly working with the second-team offense. The expectations have been lowered as trade rumors swirl. The former first-round pick has flashed at times this summer (see: 50-yard bomb from Jalen Hurts in double coverage, plus some nice back-shoulder catches). But no one knows what to expect. Head coach Nick Sirianni told reporters that Reagor is fighting for a roster spot. That’s a huge reality check for a guy who started 13 games in 2021.

    Getty Josh Jacobs of the Las Vegas Raiders. The most notable things to come out of the Las Vegas Raiders‘ first preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars surprisingly had to do with Josh Jacobs. The former Pro Bowler and first-round pick played the first two drives of the game, which is not something you’d typically see from a starting running back. Jacobs looked good as he averaged 6.0 yards a carry and didn’t get hurt. Despite the strong performances, many decided that he was on the trade block due to his playing time. The Raiders drafted Zamir White in the 2022 NFL Draft and he figures to eventually be the bell cow. Why not trade Jacobs now and get something for him before he walks in free agency after the season? While it’s difficult to fault people for thinking the running back could be traded, it doesn’t appear likely to happen. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Raiders have no interest in trading Jacobs. “My understanding is the Raiders are not trying to trade Josh Jacobs and...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels. There weren’t too many surprises from the Las Vegas Raiders‘ preseason opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The offensive line predictably struggled, many of the top players sat out and Josh McDaniels looked in control as a playcaller. The biggest thing that stuck out involved running back Josh Jacobs. The former Pro Bowler and first-round pick started the game and played in the first two series. Teams don’t usually have key starters play a lot of snaps in preseason games, especially when a lot of other players are out. This has led to some suggesting that Jacobs could be on a different roster when the season starts. A few analysts pointed out that they believe that the Raiders played Jacobs in an effort to gauge trade interest in him around the league.

    Getty Josh Jacobs of the Las Vegas Raiders. The Las Vegas Raiders got off to a strong start in the preseason with a 27-11 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Many of the starters sat out, including Derek Carr, Davante Adams, Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night involved running backs. Many were taken aback to see Josh Jacobs on the field for the first series of the game. What was even more surprising was when he went back on the field for the second series. The former first-round pick had five carries for 30 yards and two catches for 14 yards. It was a productive day for the projected starter. The fact that Jacobs was out there was taken as a bad sign of his status with the new coaching staff. However, head coach Josh McDaniels explained his thought process behind the decision. “I always think it’s good for backs to carry the ball in the preseason,” McDaniels said after the game. “There’s a lot of things that happen when you’re getting tackled...
    HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs acknowledges this is a big year for him. Big as in when the team didn’t exercise Jacobs’ fifth-year option, it meant 2022 would be an audition. Taken 24th overall in 2019, Jacobs leads all rushers drafted since then with 3,087 yards. He’s also caught 107 passes for 752 yards. By exercising its option on Jacobs’ contract, Las Vegas would have committed to paying him about $8 million in 2023. Instead, the 24-year-old carries a base salary of roughly $2.1 million into this season. But rather than dwell on it, Jacobs used the situation to fuel him as he learns a new system under first-year coach Josh McDaniels and gels with what’s become an expanded running backs room with the addition of several others. Unseen during OTAs and mandatory minicamp last month, Jacobs said he didn’t have anything “too crazy” going on in terms of injuries, and “was just getting my body right” in time for training camp. “I’m a firm believer in the work that you put in is...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs. Josh Jacobs is entering a pivotal year with the Las Vegas Raiders. The team didn’t pick up his fifth-year contract option earlier in the offseason so he’ll be a free agent after the season. The former first-round pick has been a key piece of the team’s offense since getting drafted in 2019 but his consistent injury issues have hurt his value. A big thing working against him is the fact that the Raiders hired head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler in the offseason. They both come from the New England Patriots, which is a team that is known to not pay running backs. Obviously, Jacobs would like the security of having another guaranteed year on his contract but he’s taken it in stride. He hasn’t talked about the contract situation until now and is using it as motivation. “I had to be here either way … gave me more of a reason to come in every day and gel with the guys,” Jacobs told reporters. Jacobs was a...
    Getty Derek Carr with Josh Jacobs. It hasn’t been a great offseason for Josh Jacobs. The former first-round pick saw his fifth-year option declined and the Las Vegas Raiders draft his possible replacement in 2022 fourth-round pick Zamir White. After his rookie season, Jacobs looked like the next great NFL running back. He was robbed of the Rookie of the Year award and broke 1,000 rushing yards. His sophomore season was also solid as he broke 1,000 rushing yards again and was named to the Pro Bowl. 2021 was Jacobs’ weakest year since entering the NFL. He finished with just 872 rushing yards and was banged up for much of the season despite only missing two games. With Jacobs entering a contract year, he needs to show that he can return to rookie form for the Raiders to consider re-signing him. According to quarterback Derek Carr, Jacobs is taking this offseason very seriously. He believes the running back will single-handily help the Raiders win games. “Josh is someone I’m very excited for,” Carr said on NFL Network. “He’s...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs. It’s been an exciting offseason for many Las Vegas Raiders players as the team has added a lot of talent and handed new contracts to Maxx Crosby, Derek Carr and Hunter Renfrow. One player who can’t be too happy with how the offseason has played out is running back Josh Jacobs. The 2019 first-round draft pick had his fifth-year option declined this offseason and the Raiders drafted his possible replacement in Zamir White. Jacobs is likely in his last year with the team unless he proves to be an irreplaceable asset this season. Las Vegas has finished up OTAs and mandatory minicamps so players have a bit of free time before training camp. Jacobs raised some eyebrows among Raiders fans when he was seen hanging out at MetLife Stadium, which is where the New York Giants and Jets play. Josh Jacobs is currently at MetLife Stadium.

    Getty Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs. New Las Vegas Raiders general manager Dave Zeigler has shown commitment to a number of players who were members of the team before he was hired. Derek Carr, Hunter Renfrow and Maxx Crosby all received contract extensions this offseason. One Pro Bowler who noticeably got bad contract news was Josh Jacobs. The 2019 first-round pick did not have his fifth-year option picked up and will become a free agent at the end of the season. That move came as a bit of a surprise considering Jacobs’ status as a first-round pick. However, Ziegler and head coach Josh McDaniels come from the New England Patriots, which is a team that is known not to pay running backs. Jacobs didn’t participate in mandatory minicamp practices due to injury, which will only hurt his chances going forward. He’s expected to be the No. 1 running back this season but that’s not a guarantee. The Athletic’s Vic Tafur believes that Jacobs will likely be gone after the season and that rookie fourth-round pick Zamir...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels. Outside of a handful of players, most on the Las Vegas Raiders roster will be auditioning for their futures with the team this season. Head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler have no allegiances to players brought in from the previous management. They made that clear when they declined the fifth-year options for Clelin Ferrell, Josh Jacobs and Johnathan Abram. Ferrell and Abram not getting a fifth year wasn’t a surprise but there was a chance that Jacobs could. McDaniels had some strong praise for the Pro Bowl running back getting the job and the extra year would’ve only cost $8 million. However, McDaniels comes from the New England Patriots, which is a team that is known to never pay running backs good money. The Raiders decided to draft Zamir White in the fourth round of the recent draft. If he impresses in training camp, the team might not see a need to have Jacobs on the roster. Alex Ballentine of Bleacher Report believes the Raiders could consider...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake. Based on the Las Vegas Raiders‘ offseason, it’s clear that Josh McDaniels plans to use a lot of running backs. The team currently has six on the roster, including two recently drafted rookies. During McDaniels’ days with the New England Patriots, they never paid running backs big money. It’s clear that he plans to take that same approach in Las Vegas. 2019 first-round pick Josh Jacobs had his fifth-year option declined, which likely means this is his last year as a Raider. One move McDaniels would’ve never done was giving Kenyan Drake a two-year contract worth $11 million like Jon Gruden did last offseason. Drake is a good running back but the Raiders already had one in Jacobs and there was no reason to pay him that kind of money. McDaniels will most likely need to figure out a role for Drake as most of his contract is guaranteed this season. However, Ian Wharton of Bleacher Report believes that the running back is the best player on the team who could...
    Getty Josh Jacobs of the Las Vegas Raiders. It’s been a chaotic week for the Raiders as they make big roster moves but roster transactions aren’t the only news coming out of Las Vegas. Last year, the NFL started allowing running backs, wide receivers and tight ends to wear any number between 1 and 49, and any number between 80 and 89. That led to many players across the league changing their numbers. However, players are financially responsible for any unsold jerseys with their old number. For big-name players, that could cost a pretty penny. That doesn’t look like it’s going to stop Raiders running back Josh Jacobs. The 2019 first-round pick originally raised eyebrows when he issued an apology to the Raiders fan base and just said “you’ll see why soon.” Ima just going to go ahead and apologize to #RaiderNation you’ll see why soon ???? — Josh Jacobs (@iAM_JoshJacobs) March 16, 2022 Read More From Heavy Bet $5, Win $150 Whether Your Team Wins or Loses During March Madness This time of year, there are so...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs. One of the biggest moves of the 2021 offseason was when the Atlanta Falcons traded wide receiver Julio Jones to the Tennessee Titans. The seven-time Pro Bowler has long been considered one the premier wide receivers in the NFL and was supposed to form a formidable duo with A.J. Brown. Instead, Jones only played in 10 games due to injury last season and had a career-low in receiving yards with 434. It figured to just be a down season but the Titans aren’t confident he’ll turn things around and have decided to release him, per ESPN’s Dianna Russini and Adam Schefter.

    Getty Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs. After having a lackluster running game in 2021, the Las Vegas Raiders should improve greatly in that area under new head coach Josh McDaniels. The Raiders were 28th in rushing yards last season while the New England Patriots ranked eighth under McDaniels. It wasn’t due to a lack of talent. Josh Jacobs is a former first-round pick and made the Pro Bowl in 2020 while Kenyan Drake was supposed to be a great No. 2 before getting hurt. Jacobs picked things up towards the end of the year and was a big reason the Raiders fought their way to the playoffs. However, he wasn’t productive for most of the season and suffered injuries throughout. The Raiders have to decide if they’re going to pick up his fifth-year option worth $10.1 million this offseason. At the NFL Scouting Combine, McDaniels was asked about the running back’s contract and gave some insight. “I am excited to have the opportunity to coach this guy,” McDaniels said, via Vic Tafur of The Athletic. “It’s funny,...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs. The Las Vegas Raiders have their next head coach and general manager. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the team has finalized contracts with Josh McDaniels and Dave Ziegler. The momentum was building towards those two coming over to Las Vegas and it’s now officially happening. McDaniels has had a ton of success as the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots and had a chance to be a head coach in the past with the Denver Broncos. While his stint in Denver didn’t work out, that was a decade ago and the Raiders believe that he’s learned from past mistakes. However, owner Mark Davis has taken a major risk here. The Raiders players loved interim head coach Rich Bisaccia and believe that he earned the permanent job after leading the team to the playoffs. Running back Josh Jacobs had a bit of a concerning reaction after the news broke. He simply tweeted out a grimacing face and then quickly deleted it.

    Getty Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs. It’s been a tough year for Josh Jacobs. The 2020 Pro Bowler is having his worst season as a pro and has been injured for much of the year. Also, the Las Vegas Raiders aren’t playing well right now as they’ve lost four of their last five games. Jacobs certainly isn’t in the mood to deal with rumors and gossip about his personal life. An article from Black Sports Online emerged on Tuesday alleging that Jacobs currently has eight children with eight different women and a ninth one is incoming. Considering the running back is only 23-years-old, that is certainly a notable claim. However, there’s little evidence to believe that it’s true and Jacobs isn’t happy about the story. While he didn’t directly address the story, he posted on Twitter that people “will say anything for some clicks and likes.” He also suggested that a lawsuit could be incoming and said his lawyers are about to “have a field day with this one.” Lawyers abt to have a field day with...

    Getty Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs. It seems as if every time Josh Jacobs’ body is feeling good, he suffers a setback. Heading into Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Las Vegas Raiders running back expressed that he was feeling as healthy as he ever had this late in the season. Unfortunately, he got hurt during the Eagles game and was forced to leave early. He’s already missed two games due to injury so this latest one was certainly frustrating. On Monday, interim head coach Rich Bisaccia said that Jacobs suffered a chest injury but it wasn’t too serious. However, there’s apparently more to the story. Jacobs posted on Instagram early Tuesday morning stating that he does not “have a chest injury.” He also said, “stop the” and inserted a blue emoji. That translates to “stop the cap,” which means “stop lying.” Essentially, it appears that Jacobs is accusing Bisaccia and the Raiders of lying about his injury. Josh Jacobs posted on his Instagram story that he doesn’t have a chest injury, despite head coach Rich...

    Getty Josh Jacobs with Darren Waller. The bye week is coming just in time for the Las Vegas Raiders. The team is red hot right now and coming off a dominant 33-22 win over the Philadelphia Eagles but they are banged up. On Friday, it was revealed that star tight end Darren Waller was questionable for Sunday’s game after suffering a freak ankle injury in practice. He ended up not suiting up against the Eagles. Luckily, Foster Moreau stepped up and caught six passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. However, the Raiders will want their star tight end back sooner rather than later. According to Moreau, Waller shouldn’t be out for too long. “Darren’s minor, Darren will be back,” Moreau said of Waller’s injury after the game. “I’m not too worried about that.” There’s no specific return date for Waller to return but based on Moreau’s comments, it’s hard to imagine he isn’t back after the bye week.

To say that Gruden and interim head coach Rich Bisaccia have different demeanors would be a gross understatement. The former made a career out of being one of the most eccentric characters in the entire NFL. He was a fiery leader that led his team with passion. Bisaccia is plenty passionate but he doesn’t wear his emotions on his sleeve. That was evident in Week 6. Running back Josh Jacobs revealed that there was a major difference on the sideline against the Broncos. “Man, the sideline was just so, it was like, it wasn’t no anxiety,” Jacobs said of the vibe on the sideline during Sunday’s game. “It was weird. It was like everybody was calm, you didn’t have somebody cussing at you, or going crazy at the refs. None of that. Something bad happened and it like, ‘OK, next play.’” Whether he means it...

Running back Josh Jacobs insists that the poor performance had nothing to do with the email controversy. “I don’t think it had anything to do with (Gruden’s email),” Jacobs said after the loss. “I think it’s just kind of how the guys came out — the last couple of weeks, we’ve been coming out flat starting out early in the game.

    INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Running back Josh Jacobs is back in the Las Vegas Raiders’ lineup for their visit to SoFi Stadium to face the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday night. Jacobs missed the past two games with an ankle injury, but the third-year starter is back in uniform as Las Vegas (3-0) attempts to remain one of the NFL’s two unbeaten teams. Fullback Alec Ingold is also active despite a shoulder injury. Starting cornerback Chris Harris Jr. is out with a shoulder injury for the Chargers (2-1), likely forcing Tevaughn Campbell to assume most of his responsibilities as the slot defensive back again. Harris was a model of durability during his tenure with the Denver Broncos, but he is missing his third straight game and his 10th overall since signing with the Chargers just 20 games ago.

    Getty Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs. During Week 1’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, it was clear that Josh Jacobs wasn’t 100%. He was commonly seen wincing in pain and limping off the field. Despite that, he toughed it out for the Las Vegas Raiders and even scored a key touchdown. Injuries have become a common theme regarding Jacobs. He’s missed four games in two seasons and is set to miss Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. That’s not even taken into account all the injuries he’s played through. He’s as tough as they come but his body is clearly having a difficult time dealing with the rigors of the NFL. Fans can be a brutal bunch and many are writing off Jacobs as an injury-prone player who can’t stay on the field. A day after the news dropped that he wasn’t playing on Sunday, Jacobs posted a cryptic tweet just featuring an emoji of a pencil writing on paper. ???? — Josh Jacobs (@iAM_JoshJacobs) September 18, 2021 Based on this tweet, it seems that the...

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs will miss this week’s game at Pittsburgh with injuries to his toe and ankle. Jacobs didn’t practice all week for the Raiders after rushing for 34 yards and two touchdowns in a season-opening 33-27 win in overtime against Baltimore on Monday night. Coach Jon Gruden said Friday that Jacobs won’t play Sunday against the Steelers. The Raiders gave free agent Kenyan Drake an $11 million, two-year contract this offseason to give the team another option out of the backfield with Jacobs, but Gruden said Friday that Peyton Barber also will take a big load. “We really like Barber,” he said. “We think he’s a heck of a back. … I like the way he runs and catches and picks up blitzes. Kenyan will continue to play a role in our system no matter who the other back is, and we’re excited about this opportunity to see what we have.” Whoever runs the ball will be doing it behind a makeshift line after starting right guard Denzelle Good went on injured reserve this week...
    Getty Josh Jacobs of the Las Vegas Raiders. The Las Vegas Raiders had a great start to the season with a win over the Baltimore Ravens but things are already getting tough. The team has lost defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and starting right guard Denzelle Good for the season. The injury issues aren’t stopping there, unfortunately. Starting running back Josh Jacobs has missed practice all week with toe and ankle injuries. Head coach Jon Gruden announced on Friday that Jacobs will not be playing on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. That’s bad news for the Raiders as the Steelers have led the NFL in sacks in each of the last four seasons. Having a strong rushing attack would mitigate that threat. Jacobs was clearly hobbled for much of the game against the Ravens so it’s not a surprise that he’s not ready to go on a short week. He’s been an elite running back for the Raiders when he’s on the field but has now missed games in each of his three seasons as a pro. He’ll need...

After jumping out to a 14-0 lead, the Ravens offense has stagnated. On a Jackson scramble, Jefferson punched the ball free as Denzel Perryman recovered to give the ball back to the Raiders at the Baltimore 41-yard line. Jacobs converted a third down and a check down to Kenyan Drake for 16 yards moved Las Vegas inside the red zone before Jacobs’ touchdown run brought the game back to level with 9:18 left to play.

Less than 24 hours ago, star Raiders running back Josh Jacobs was downgraded to questionable for his NFL Week 1 debut — and he’s already bounced back much sooner than expected. If Jacobs plays limited snaps tonight or doesn’t play at all, both Drake and Peyton Barber are expected to run against the Ravens.

    Getty Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs. Through two seasons in the NFL, Josh Jacobs has eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards twice. The Las Vegas Raiders running back has been a key part of their success on offense despite inconsistency on the offensive line. This year, the team has an offensive line that’s more tailor-made for the running game and should stay a lot healthier. The only thing that’s slowed Jacobs down in his career is injuries. He missed three games as a rookie and one game last year. With the 2021 season about to start, the running back is injured again. He’s either missed or been limited in practice all week due to a toe injury. The Raiders don’t seem too concerned so it could just be precautionary. Jacobs is a very important part of what the offense does so they need him healthy. He had a chance to talk about his status after Friday’s practice. “I feel good. I did everything today,” Jacobs said. “I feel good to go.” Based on those comments, it sounds like Jacobs...
    Country Singer Jillian Jacqueline Expecting First Baby with Husband Bryan Brown What stocks and sectors will benefit from the infrastructure bill? Josh Jacobs of the Las Vegas Raiders was a first-round pick during an era in which running backs are devalued. If you do take a running back in the first round, you need to get maximum value from him.  Jacobs has been good for the Raiders. Maybe not great, but he has still been a productive starting back. And with a chance to make Jacobs their unquestioned feature back, the Raiders made one of the most confusing moves of the entire offseason in signing running back Kenyan Drake.  That makes it harder to know what to expect out of Jacobs this season. It makes betting the over on his rushing yardage total prop a bit scary.  Can Josh Jacobs reach 1,000 yards? Jacobs has a rushing yardage prop of 1,000.5 at BetMGM. That's in roughly the same tier as unquestioned lead backs like David Montgomery (950.5), Antonio Gibson (1,025.5) and Aaron Jones (1,050.5).  Jacobs flashed as a rookie,...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs. As a rookie, Josh Jacobs was a revelation for the Raiders. He was one of the most productive running backs in the NFL and was very important for the team’s offense. While he was still very good in 2020, he didn’t take the leap that the team was likely hoping he would. He did increase his rushing touchdowns from seven to 12, but his yards per attempt fell from 4.8 to 3.9. Jacobs also went from rushing for 1,150 yards in 13 games to 1,065 in 15 games. Those are still solid numbers and he made the Pro Bowl, but don’t put him in elite company. He has to have a really big year in 2021 if he’s going to be worth the first-round pick the Raiders used on him. Luckily, it looks like he’s putting in a lot of work. A video of Jacobs working out with top wide receiver draft prospect Ja’Marr Chase started making the rounds on social media recently. Offseason grind for @iAM_JoshJacobs and @Real10jayy__ ????

    Getty Kenyan Drake with Kyler Murry. While there’s been some focus on the Las Vegas Raiders trying to fix their defense, they’ve also added some offensive playmakers. One of the more interesting players the team added was veteran running back Kenyan Drake. The former Arizona Cardinal should pair up very nicely with Josh Jacobs. When talking about players coming to the Raiders, people will often say “he would look good in silver and black.” It didn’t take Drake long to realize that it is a fact that most players look better in silver and black. He couldn’t even hide that fact before his introduction interview with the team.

    Alabama families escape minutes before tornadoes strike Schumer: New York’s ‘vaccine supercharge’ is underway, supply boosted to 1.65 million weekly The Patriots have re-made their offense, the Washington Football Team added a lot of excitement to its attack, and now the Dolphins have found a key piece to help build around Tua Tagovailoa. There are still some big names left to sign, and there are still some teams with big holes to fill heading into the weekend, but Thursday saw a few signings with some pretty serious ramifications for Fantasy, with Kenyan Drake joining the Raiders and Will Fuller signing a one-year make-good deal with the Dolphins. You should check out Thursday's emergency episode of the Fantasy Football Today podcast to hear the reactions of Jamey Eisenberg and Heath Cummings to both big signings from Thursday, but spoiler alert: They don't love them.  I'm a little more optimistic about Fuller heading to Miami, joining an offense that I think is ready to take a step forward this season. You can read my thoughts below, but first, here's what I think...
    The Las Vegas Raiders already had a great running back in Josh Jacobs, so of course, they signed former Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake in his free agency. Despite losing pretty much all their offensive linemen this offseason, the Las Vegas Raiders were able to sign former Arizona Cardinals running back Kenyan Drake in his free agency. He will be a high-priced backup to Josh Jacobs on his two-year deal worth $14.5 million. Few teams, if any, have had a stranger free-agency period than the Silver and Black. This is Jon Gruden’s fourth year back as head coach and the third he has been partnered with Mike Mayock as his general manager. Though the Raiders have drafted well, they continue to make questionable moves in free agency. Drake is a high-quality player, but they have other bigger needs to address.

    The Raiders have gotten Josh Jacobs some much needed help at running back. Kenyan Drake, who gained 955 yards and scored 10 touchdowns last season for the Arizona Cardinals, agreed to a free agent deal with the Raiders Thursday. The transaction was first reported by Drake’s agency on Twitter and confirmed by a team source. And if salary figures via ESPN are correct, Drake isn’t arriving to play just a series or three while Jacobs gets pounded into submission. Drake received a two-year deal with $11 million guaranteed that could rise to as much as $14.5 million depending on his performance. At 6-foot-1, 211 pounds, Drake is a no-nonsense runner that fits the mold Jon Gruden likes in his running backs, HIs 239 carries, 955 yards and 10 touchdowns were all career highs. In five seasons, Drake has 695 carries for 3,130 yards for Miami and Arizona and averages 4.5 yards per carry. With 169 receptions for 1,244 yards and six touchdowns and two seasons with more than 50 receptions, Drake can also operate choice routes as...
    LAS VEGAS (AP) — A traffic case involving Las Vegas Raiders player Josh Jacobs was closed Monday after he completed community service and paid a fine stemming from a vehicle crash in January near McCarran International Airport, his lawyers said. The 23-year-old running back mentored at a Boys & Girls Club and paid a $500 fine to resolve a failure to exercise due care traffic violation, said his attorneys, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld. Jacobs received several stitches for a cut forehead and was initially also charged with driving under the influence after the 2019 Acura NSX he was driving crashed early Jan. 4 into a tunnel wall at the Las Vegas airport. The DUI charge was dropped a week later because Jacobs’ blood-alcohol level did not reach the 0.08% level needed to pursue the case, his attorneys and a prosecutor said. Jacobs, who lives in Las Vegas, was alone in the vehicle after returning to Las Vegas from Denver, where the Raiders defeated the Broncos in their final NFL regular-season game less than 12 hours before the crash....

(Dustin Bradford/Icon Sportswire/Getty Images) Jacobs was involved in a single-car accident near McCarran Airport in Las Vegas just before 5 a.m. on Jan. 4, hours after the Raiders’ regular season finale win against the Denver Broncos, and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.  Upon further investigation, per the report, officials determined that Jacobs’ “blood-alcohol level was below 0.08 within two hours at the time of his driving.” Police were not able to conduct field sobriety tests on site, either, as Jacobs was receiving medical treatment for a “large gash” on his forehead.  He was...
    Raiders running back Josh Jacobs will not face any DUI charges stemming from his single-car crash in Las Vegas last week following the team’s season-ending victory, authorities said Monday. Jacobs was initially taken into custody on suspicion of DUI, but blood test results revealed his blood-alcohol level was below the 0.08% threshold needed to pursue drunken driving charges, Clark County prosecutor Eric Bauman said Monday. The Raiders’ Pro Bowl back will instead face a traffic violation charge of failure to exercise due care during a March 8 hearing, said Bauman and Jacobs’ attorneys, Richard Schonfeld and David Chesnoff. The 22-year-old Jacobs is charged with a misdemeanor count of “Duty of driver to decrease speed under certain circumstances,” district attorney Steve Wolfson said in a statement.

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs was never charged with a DUI and instead was charged with a misdemeanor traffic offense after a single-car crash last week near McCarran International Airport. The Clark County District Attorney's Office filed a complaint against Jacobs charging him for failure to exercise due care, his lawyers said in a statement published by the NFL Network on Twitter. At the time of the crash, KVVU, the FOX television station in Las Vegas, reported Jacobs was charged with DUI -- also a misdemeanor for a first-time offender -- after officers suspected he was under the influence.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas Raiders player Josh Jacobs won’t face a driving under the influence charge in his single-vehicle crash last week near McCarran International Airport, authorities said Monday. Blood test results showed Jacobs’ blood-alcohol level did not reach the 0.08% level required to pursue a drunken driving charge, prosecutor Eric Bauman said. Bauman and Jacobs’ attorneys, Richard Schonfeld and David Chesnoff, said the 22-year-old running back still has a March 8 court date on a failure to exercise due care traffic violation related to the crash. The attorneys had said that Jacobs would plead not guilty if he was charged with a crime in the Jan. 4 crash. Chesnoff declined further comment on Monday. Jacobs, who lives in Las Vegas, received several stitches at a hospital for a cut forehead after the 4:43 a.m. crash into a tunnel wall at the Las Vegas airport.
