Josh Jacobs expresses confidence in his future and says he’s not worried about it

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs did not officially re-sign with the Raiders until August 26, which meant he did not attend the offseason program and training camp. Despite this, he still managed to lead the league in rushing yards in 2021. However, in 2023, he battled injuries and rushed for just 805 yards with six touchdowns in only 13 games. With a new General Manager in Tom Telesco, there is no guarantee that Josh Jacobs will be back with Las Vegas next season.

In an interview this week, Josh Jacobs said that he was not stressing about his future and instead put his trust in God’s plan. He also announced that he plans to stay away from social media and avoid discussing contract negotiations publicly. With a one-year renegotiated deal worth $11.8 million, Josh Jacobs made more money than Zamir White, who filled in for him when he was injured this season and will make just $950,000 in 2024.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding his future with the team, Josh Jacobs expressed confidence in the direction of the organization under new head coach Antonio Pierce and General Manager Tom Telesco. He feels that the team is poised to have a successful season and make it to the playoffs. “I trust the system and the guys that they’re putting together,” Josh said. “I know that the guys that they’re gonna bring back and the guys that they’re gonna bring in are going to be fully bought in.”
