On the Raiders podcast with Tony R:

The Raiders running back Josh Jacobs was designed by former Raider head coach Jon Gruden to be that first second down back and have quarterback Derek Carr throw on third down and open up the pass.

When Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels was using multiple backs to catch passes out of the backfield McDaniels had different backs when he was offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots.

Your going to see a lot of touches from Jacobs in these next three pre season games. If the Raiders decide to keep him they don’t have to pay him a bunch and if they don’t want to keep him and they think they can get that job done with a lower paycheck I could see Jacobs being traded by the Raiders.
