In the 2022 NFL season, Josh Jacobs was one of the few shining lights on a terribly poor Las Vegas Raiders squad. Jacobs appeared to be the only one who could guide the Raiders on the field on numerous occasions, but he might be using his skills elsewhere.
Josh Jacobs, who will become a free agent at the conclusion of the 2022 NFL season, stated that he still intends to remain in Sin City and play for the Raiders, assuming that an appropriate deal is put on the table, according to Paul Gutierrez of ESPN. In reference to a potential new contract, he remarked, “For me, it’s got to make sense, which means dollars and cents.”
But it’s clear that here is where I want to be. I recall talking about the Raiders organization and culture when I first arrived, sitting down with [defensive end] Maxx [Crosby] and all these guys, and wanting to be a part of the transition. I still have that feeling, so hopefully, I’ll return.
Cool to present #Raiders RB @iAM_JoshJacobs with the Craig Long Award, which is "presented annually to the player who best exemplifies professionalism and collaboration with the media at large." Follows in footsteps of @CrosbyMaxx, @Rackkwall83 and @CharlesWoodson. @RAIDERS_PR pic.twitter.com/DqCgjH4UPb

Josh Jacobs should be a desirable return for the Raiders, especially after the season he just had. With a career-high 1,653 running yards and 12 touchdowns on 340 rushing attempts over the course of 17 games in 2022, Jacobs led the NFL.
Josh Jacobs, who will turn 25 in February, may still be in the prime of his career at the age of 24, and the Raiders can continue to gain from his success by signing him to a sizable extension deal. If the Raiders were unable to retain his services through an extension, Jacobs is predicted to garner a lot of interest in free agency.
