Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs may be on the move.
Jacobs will be a trade candidate if a long-term contract extension is not reached before Week 1.
Despite being given the franchise tag, Jacobs may still be on the move if the Raiders deem a long-term deal unlikely.
“Technically he’s locked in for 2023 under the franchise tag. However, that doesn’t mean the Raiders wouldn’t field — or solicit — interest in the event a future long-term deal is unlikely. Coach Josh McDaniels, remember, hails from the Patriots system that deploys multiple backs, even if he did lean heavily on Jacobs in 2022. And the veteran teased dissatisfaction with the current regime after Darren Waller’s exit this offseason. Moving the 25-year-old workhorse would instantly save Vegas $10M.”
Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports lists the Bills, Cardinals, and Seahawks as potential landing spots for the 2022 rushing champion. Jacobs offers a significant boost to the Bills who have not had a 1,000-yard rusher since 2017.
With 1,653 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, Jacobs will make a difference in a potent Buffalo offense led by Josh Allen.
