DONE DEAL: Green Bay packers Signed Former Raiders Star $49m Joshua Jacob on a Veteran 5years deal sealed

The Green Bay Packers have made a significant move by signing former Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs to a four-year, $48 million contract. Jacobs, known for his powerful running style and versatility as a pass-catcher, joins the Packers after a successful stint with the Raiders, where he accumulated over 5,500 rushing yards and 46 touchdowns in five seasons.

Jacobs, who led the NFL in rushing yards and scrimmage yards in 2022, experienced a dip in performance last season due to injuries, but still managed to post respectable numbers with 805 rushing yards and six touchdowns in 13 games. The Packers are banking on a bounce-back season from Jacobs as they transition from Aaron Jones, who was released and subsequently signed with the Minnesota Vikings【6†source】【7†source】【8†source】.

The addition of Jacobs is expected to rejuvenate the Packers’ backfield, providing a dynamic dual-threat option for quarterback Jordan Love. Jacobs’ ability to find creases and run through tackles makes him a valuable asset in Green Bay’s offensive scheme. His signing is also seen as a strategic move to get younger and more cost-effective at the running back position while retaining a high level of production【9†source】【10†source】.

This acquisition marks a new chapter for both Jacobs and the Packers, as they aim to leverage his talents to push for a successful season.
