The Las Vegas Raiders retain another running back
The Las Vegas Raiders took care of their most important running back position earlier in the week. The Raiders assured Josh Jacobs would return next season as the team applied the franchise tag to him for this season. The Raiders signed another running back this week before the free agency period next week.
According to Aaron Wilson with KPRC, the Raiders re-signed Ameer Abdullah to a one-year deal for 2023. He made an impact on the Raiders’ passing game last season, as he recorded one touchdown and 211 receiving yards on 25 catches last season.

Abdullah didn’t contribute much to the Raiders’ running game last season. He ran four times for 20 yards in 2022. But the Raiders’ backfield is okay in the running department, as Jacobs led the NFL in rushing yards last season. The Raiders backfield still isn’t yet complete for next season. The Raiders have yet to find a quarterback to replace Derek Carr.
