Breaking News: Another Las Vegas Raiders Star Opens Up About Raiders Departure

Many were astonished when the Las Vegas Raiders allowed All-Pro running back Josh Jacobs depart after he inked a four-year, $48 million contract with the Green Bay Packers at the beginning of free agency.

According to The Athletic, the team made the 26-year-old two-time Pro Bowler what they thought was a reasonable contract offer, though it’s unclear how much money they offered. Just two years after leading the NFL in running, Jacobs will now suit up for a different team.

Jacobs revealed that the organization handled his departure in an odd manner during a recent appearance on the podcast “Green Light with Chris Long.” He claimed he had no communication with general manager Tom Telesco and that there was no talk about how to keep him on the team.
Due to a bruised quadriceps sustained in Week 14 against the Minnesota Vikings, Jacobs was only able to play in 13 games last season, which was a decline from his previous campaign. He only ran for 805 yards and six touchdowns, and he also caught 37 passes for 296 yards.

Jacobs finished 2022 with 1,653 yards and 12 touchdowns in 17 games, making him the NFL’s top rusher. In his first four years, it was his third season with 1,000 yards. Following the release of 2023 starter Aaron Jones, who quickly joined with the Minnesota Vikings, Jacobs will now take over as the team’s top running back.

Along with Emmanuel Wilson and 2024 third-round selection MarShawn Lloyd, who rushed for 820 yards and nine touchdowns last season at USC, the Packers’ backfield also has A.J. Dillon, who over the last three seasons has carried for 2,186 yards and 14 touchdowns.
