Raiders Extend RB Jalen Richard on a 2-Year Deal

Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders have signed their third-down running back, Jalen Richard, to a two-year deal. The organization announced the extension on Wednesday.

Richard joined the team as an undrafted free-agent following the 2016 NFL draft. Now, after four seasons in black and silver, the running back will receive a deal worth $7 million over the next two years. NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported the signing with more details Wednesday afternoon.

 

Since joining the Raiders, Richard has become an important piece to the team’s offense. In 64 games over the past four seasons, the running back carried the ball 233 times for 1,170 yards and three touchdowns. To add, the back became a reliable pass catcher, totaling 160 receptions for 1,380 yards and three touchdowns.

In 2018, Richard proved his worth by leading the team in receptions with 68. As a result, the running back earned head coach Jon Gruden’s praise. “[Richard] might be MVP of our team,” Gruden stated in regards to his third-down back.

Now that Richard has signed a $7 million dollar deal, he and the Raiders will be debuting in Las Vegas for the 2020 season.
