Josh Jacobs remains without a long-term extension after the Las Vegas Raiders placed the $10.1 million franchise tag on him earlier this season, and whatever is going on behind the scenes is not making Jacobs happy at all.
Not too many teams in the league want to invest a ton of money in the position these days and Jacobs is finding that out the hard way.
The Raiders used the franchise tag on Jacobs back in March. The two sides now have until July 17 to negotiate a long-term extension.
The star running back alluded to things not going well with his below tweet:
Jacobs also quote-tweeted a video earlier this month from the I Am Athlete podcast that talks about running back being the most disrespected position in all of sports.
His former teammate, four-time Pro Bowl left guard Richie Incognito, showed his support for him:
The franchise tag would pay him just north of $10 million, which is $6 million less than what Christian McAffrey makes with the San Francisco 49ers.
Jacobs put together the best season of his career in 2022 with 1,653 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns in 17 games. He was also a threat in the passing game as he caught 53 passes for 400 yards. It marked the third time in his four-year career that he rushed for at least 1,000 yards.
If both sides cannot come to terms on a long-term extension, it’s possible the Alabama product sits out the 2023 campaign.
