Draft a big nasty right tackle and I'll be looking forward to seeing thunder and lightning.

    Booker played pretty well for us. I thought we'd bring him back. I Just hope we get the same output from him.

    terrible signing. Paying Drake #1 money when RB isn't one of our biggest needs. They can give a backup RB 14 million but they couldn't give Long a starter we need 5 million????? They could have easily drafted a rb late in the rounds and save 12+ million.

    I mean we sign 2 starting guards already with Good and Incognito.

    Also its not 14M. If he reaches 14M that means he played both years and hit every incentive.

    1ts 5.5M per season with incentives.

    I like the addition. Speed to burn and compliments Jacob’s very well.

    It seems that you have to keep repeating that the base salary is $5.5mil. According to sportrac.com Drake's market value is $8.4 mil per year. so for us to get him at $5.5 mil is a bargain for his production history and comparable RBs.

    If you don't like this signing, your not taking in consideration what makes this offense work. This offense spreads you sideline to sideline. Attacks you in the run game that makes TE's crucial in RPO and play action. It all revolves around the run game.

    Raiders was 6-3 when Jacobs got banged up and then lost 5 of 6 games with less than about 50 yards a game. He is not here to be a back up..... He is here to be part of a one two punch.

    Oh ya.... dude will block too.

    And for anyone that complains this money should have been spent on defense... I believe that is what we did. We just got another 3-4 minutes a game in time of possession. Don't ask me how I came up with that stat, cause I made it up but you got my point.

    LOL can you tell I like to run the ball?

    #Raiders RB Kenyan Drake's two-year, $11 million deal pays $3M in 2021 and $8M in 2022, including a $5.5M roster bonus next March that's fully guaranteed at signing. A creative way to keep cap, and cash, down this year. The deal maxes out at $14.5M with incentives.

    That is creative.

    Even better! Drake's contract is only 3M this year and 8M next year if we keep him (which we probably will since the cap will go up), and 5.5M if we don't. Everyone keeps saying it is 11M guaranteed, but it looks like it is actually only 8.5M guaranteed.

    Yup... we’ll be paying him less than Jalen Richard would have been making, once he’s cut.

    Kenyan Drake said Gruden expressed “head and shoulders more interest than any other team” and he “jumped at the opportunity” to play with @iAM_JoshJacobs. “Roll Tide.” #Raiders

    Drake said the Raiders plan to use him at RB and WR.

    Still annoyed that they didn’t use DMac in a variety of ways, the way Drake will be.

    What a waste of potential.

    My guess is Richard will go the way Deandre Washington did
