He is back with the franchise as he agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth $12 million.
NFL insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero broke the news. Jacobs led the league in rushing last season with 1,653 yards and 12 touchdowns. He earned first-team All-Pro honors and made his second Pro Bowl. Jacobs won the inaugural Jim Brown Award, which goes to the league’s rushing champion. Las Vegas has its guy back into the fold and it is ready to get to work.
