In season of change, Raiders will have stability in one key offensive group

Raiders will have stability in RB room

After 9 years the Las Vegas Raiders will look different at starting quarterback after moving on from Derek Carr. However, in 2023, the running back room should look very similar to 2022. The Raiders have recently franchised tagged Josh Jacobs and resigned backup running back Ameer Abdullah.

 In 2022, Jacobs lead the NFL in Rushing for the 1st time in his career. The Raiders declined the 5th year option on Jacobs before the season which he strongly responded to. The tag will cost the Raiders 10.09 million dollars and both sides are hopeful they reach a long term deal by mid-July.  

 The Raiders resigned Abdullah to a 1-year deal. Abdullah caught 25 passes for over 200 yards and one touchdown a year ago. Abullah will compete for snaps with 2nd year running back Zamir White. White performed well in the preseason and averaged over 4 yards a carry in limited action in 2022.

 With a backfield anchored by Josh Jacobs in 2023, whomever the quarterback is should have a reliable option to turn around and handoff to.
