NFL Stars Who Will Play For New Teams Next Season

Josh Jacobs

The Raiders entered 2022 with three former first-round picks entering the final year of their deals. One is already gone (Jonathan Abram), and the other was a healthy scratch in Week 10 for a 2-6 team (Clelin Ferrell). Josh Jacobs is the last man standing among Raider 2019 first-round picks. The former Pro Bowl running back is having his best season to date, and enjoyed a string of three-straight 140-yard performances during Vegas’ only positive stretch of the year.

Before the season began, some wondered about the new regime’s thoughts on Jacobs. The four-year pro was given extensive work throughout the preseason after the team declined his fifth-year option. A Raider team filled with gaps across the roster, it might not be best suited for GM Dave Ziegler to invest significant cap space towards a running back. Now, Jacobs is set to hit the open market and should have plenty of suitors. Lining him up next to MVP candidate Jalen Hurts would give the Eagles the most dynamic power-run duo in football.
