The market for experienced running backs has shifted considerably. That should be enough to persuade Josh Jacobs to accept his franchise tender.
He can presently get $10.1 million in 2023 by simply telling the Raiders, "I'll take it." With Ezekiel Elliott signing a one-year deal worth up to $6 million with the Patriots
and Dalvin Cook accepting a one-year deal worth up to $7 million with the Jets (with up to $1.6 million in incentives),
Jacobs should recognize he's not going to get any better than what the Raiders are providing.
Indeed, the new market move may make the Raiders even more inclined to cancel the offer.
As previously said, Jacobs is aware that he would struggle to find $10.1 million for 2023 on the open market.
He is unconcerned. If the Raiders remove the franchise tender, he'll take whatever he can get.
He is still angry with the Raiders for not picking up his fifth-year option and then not providing him a long-term contract after stepping up and leading the league in rushing.
