Report reveals where Josh Jacobs, Raiders stand in contract negotiations

Josh Jacobs and the Las Vegas Raiders have yet to make progress on a long-term contract and it looks like it could continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

The deadline for teams to work out long-term deals with franchise-tagged players is Monday afternoon. According to Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, it is believed that the gap between the Raiders and Jacobs is too important to bridge ahead of time.

Jacobs is not expected to go to training camp if he doesn’t have a long-term deal. The next question is whether he will play in Week 1, and has talk about him being able to sit out.

Though he raced for 1,653 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, Jacobs plays in a position that has depreciated in recent years. In theory, the 25-year-old would fit into a huge contract, but he and another star running backwards trying to make new trades in a down market.

Jacobs, 25, made more than $12 million on his rookie contract with the Raiders. He will only make over $10 million in 2023 on the franchise card if he signs the tender. It doesn’t look like he’ll give up on checking the game by sitting out the regular games of the season.
