If the Oakland Raiders want Darren McFadden, Darren McFadden wants to be a Oakland Raider.
According to Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com, McFadden expressed his desire to remain with the Raiders after his contract expires at the end of the season.
“I love being a Raider,” McFadden said. “As long as they want to bring me back and have me here for as long as they want to have me – I love being a Raider, and I’m here.”
McFadden says the Raiders have not reached out about an extension as of yet, so for now McFadden is playing for his next contract.
McFadden’s biggest issue has been staying healthy. He’s missed 16 games over the last three season alone. If he can stay on the field and produce for the Raiders this season. The contract should end up taking care of itself.
“It’s all about playing football,” McFadden said. “If I take care of my business and do what I’m supposed to do, everything else will fall in line.”
