Raiders Plan To Use Franchise Tag On Josh Jacobs

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Las Vegas Raiders plan to place the franchise tag on RB Josh Jacobs if they don’t reach a long-term deal by the Tuesday deadline, per NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero.

The franchise tag for running backs in 2023 will cost $10.091 million. If the Raiders use the franchise tag, both sides will have until mid-July to agree to a long-term deal, or Jacobs would play on the one-year tenure.

Jacobs rushed for and NFL-leading 1,653 yards and 12 touchdowns this past season. He earned his second Pro Bowl nomination and the first All-Pro nod of his career.

Jacobs has finally looked like the running back the Raiders wanted him to be when they drafted him in the first-round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
