Mar 25, 2024

After five successful seasons with the Raiders, running back Josh Jacobs made the decision to leave the team and sign with the Packers as a free agent. Las Vegas head coach Antonio Pierce expressed his disappointment at losing the NFL’s 2022 rushing champion. He mentioned that Jacobs was a vital part of the team and had a strong connection to the Raiders, but ultimately understood that decisions in the NFL often come down to business.

Pierce acknowledged that the famous saying “money talks, BS walks” played a role in Jacobs’ decision to move to the Packers. Despite his disappointment, he wished Jacobs well in his future endeavors. The departure of Jacobs, who rushed for 805 yards and scored six touchdowns in 13 games in 2023, was particularly impactful for the team. The year prior, Jacobs had led the league with impressive stats, including 1,653 rushing yards and 2,053 yards from scrimmage, showcasing his talent and importance to the Raiders.
