He returns to the same NFL team, but he has a new number.
Josh Jacobs is back with the Las Vegas Raiders on a one-year, $12 million deal. He returns to wearing the No. 8 he sported for Alabama football after spending four seasons in No. 28. Jacobs won the league’s rushing championship in 2022 with 1,653 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Tulsa (Okla.) native was the engine behind the offense and his role may increase even more.

Mark Davis, the owner of the Raiders, is very ‘happy’ to have Jacobs in the silver and black again.
#Raiders owner Mark Davis happy @iAM_JoshJacobs returning, reiterates his feelings to me: “I love him, I love Josh. He’s phenomenal. He was the heart of our team. He came to play every day. Tough, tough, tough guy…If we had 22 Josh Jacobs…, with that mentality, amazing.”

Las Vegas Raiders regains the identity of its offense and looks to make some noise in the AFC West.
