Josh Jacobs is still gone from the Las Vegas Raiders as training camp begins, unlike Saquon Barkley, who avoided a holdout.
If he wants the $10.1 million the franchise tag guarantees him, he must play.
“Because Jacobs cannot sign a multiyear contract until the offseason, the Bills can acquire him in a sign-and-trade scenario,
adding the 2022 rushing champion on a one-year, $10.1 million deal or a modified contract with incentives and signing bonus similar to Barkley’s deal with the Giants,” Moton wrote.
LeSean McCoy's 1,138 yards in 2017 were the Bills' last 1,000-yard season. Jacobs led the NFL with 1,653 running yards last season. Buffalo has BetMGM's third-best NFL Super Bowl odds.
A star running back would improve their prospects. Since the Raiders only received a 2024 third-round pick from the Giants for Darren Waller, Jacobs may be available.
