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.
