Maurice Jones-Drew traveled to Oakland on Thursday, and he reportedly won’t be leaving without a contract.

Jones-Drew has agreed to terms on a contract with the Raiders and will sign it if he passes his physical today, CSNBayArea.com reports.

Jones-Drew met with Raiders G.M. Reggie McKenzie on Thursday and will now join a backfield that also features Darren McFadden, 2013 sixth-round pick Latavius Murray and former CFL star Kory Sheets.

The 29-year-old Jones-Drew grew up in Oakland and is now coming home to play for his hometown team. The Raiders hope that after back-to-back disappointing seasons, Jones-Drew can show he still has something left.

    Well MJD, it was a good run! Have fun becoming invisible.

  2. thevikesarebest says: Mar 28, 2014 7:25 AM

    I guess he ready to retire with money.who hell would go to that laughable team.mdj couldn’t even get too APs level.SKOL

    The Oakland Raiders – Where player careers go to die.

  4. punkyqb says: Mar 28, 2014 7:28 AM

    So the great MJD had to settle for Oakland. LOL
    I guess he’s not quite what he thinks he is or is worth what he thinks he is.

  5. monctonvike says: Mar 28, 2014 7:28 AM

    Really good signing, I think they might have the best one, two punch backfield. They might want to add depth on the line. I think somewhere in the draft they need a wr and some help on D.

    The Raiders seem to have had a great off-season so far.

  6. shackdelrio says: Mar 28, 2014 7:29 AM

    If this was 2009, Oakland would be legit.

  7. pencilmonkeymagic says: Mar 28, 2014 7:31 AM

    Good move for the Raiders. If they somehow acquired Evans or Watkins in the draft, things could get interesting. About time they had something go their way.

  8. marty2020 says: Mar 28, 2014 7:32 AM

    Good luck to him. He gave the Jaguars everything he had. If he can return to form, the Raiders will have a great running back.

  9. dudermcrbohan says: Mar 28, 2014 7:33 AM

    from one crap franchise to another.

  10. monstersofthemidway545051 says: Mar 28, 2014 7:36 AM

    Report: MJD is holding out for a new, larger contract.

  11. kurtg928 says: Mar 28, 2014 7:37 AM

    A formidable two headed monster emerging in Oakland this year. Maybe if they slip the Reps they can keep each other healthy all year long.

  12. Stiller43 says: Mar 28, 2014 7:37 AM

    Good!! Glad not to see him in pittsburgh. Hes broken down

  13. heyguru1969 says: Mar 28, 2014 7:38 AM

    Because Oakland has a history of rejuvenating 29 year old running backs.

  14. raidernut says: Mar 28, 2014 7:41 AM

    mehhh….insurance for McFragile. but our new o-line should help!!

  15. raiders85 says: Mar 28, 2014 7:43 AM

    Why?

  16. northshorejag says: Mar 28, 2014 7:44 AM

    After all that, the Ray-duhs??

    Good riddance.

  17. dfwhawkguy says: Mar 28, 2014 7:44 AM

    Between the Jags and Raiders this guy could play his entire career and never have a winning season to show for it.

  18. i10east says: Mar 28, 2014 7:44 AM

    Thanks for all of the great years in Jax Mojo. Godspeed in Oakland.

  19. raiderufan says: Mar 28, 2014 7:45 AM

    I like it. We get stability at the RB position with McFadden and MJD while not putting to much on Murray right away.

  20. raiders85 says: Mar 28, 2014 7:46 AM

    Although if they keep showing him laying that roid freak merriman out i can handle him until camp starts and they cut him

  21. oriolesvsravens says: Mar 28, 2014 7:47 AM

    So who’s the starter? MJD or DMC? Both have something to prove.

  22. packfntk says: Mar 28, 2014 7:48 AM

    Gross.

  23. Raider Jon says: Mar 28, 2014 7:50 AM

    Welcome home, MJD. Unfortunately this stable of RB’s doesn’t inspire a lot of hope for our running game.

  24. scoboscobs says: Mar 28, 2014 7:50 AM

    Going from the Jaguars to the Raiders, huh….what a magnificent career this guy’s had.

  25. daltongang1 says: Mar 28, 2014 7:51 AM

    Good signing, he should be a nice 3rd down back, but nothing else.

  26. gizz88 says: Mar 28, 2014 7:52 AM

    Way to flush what’s left of your career down the toilet!

  27. berniemadoffsides says: Mar 28, 2014 7:53 AM

    I would like to see him have one more big year, but it ought to be he and McFadden on the Questionable list every week.

  28. grogansheroes says: Mar 28, 2014 7:54 AM

    Welcome to NFL oblivion!

  29. ravenswhat says: Mar 28, 2014 7:56 AM

    Oh yeah, he’s going to all of a sudden have a career resurgence on the Raiders. Anyone wanna buy a bridge?

  30. goraidersgospurs says: Mar 28, 2014 7:56 AM

    Nice move if DMc goes down you have MJD & vice versa!!!

  31. GenoAtkinswillnotbestopped says: Mar 28, 2014 7:57 AM

    For as bad as they’ve sucked, for as long as they’ve sucked, you have to hand it to the raiders for being able to land free agents. Must be the weather.

  32. bettis3636 says: Mar 28, 2014 7:58 AM

    A team of has beens… and NOT like their SB team… these are the has beens that are washed up!

  33. howintensive says: Mar 28, 2014 8:01 AM

    Honestly, I’m more excited about Kory Sheets. That guy can ball. The Roughriders will definitely miss him.

  34. dirtysouthironmen says: Mar 28, 2014 8:03 AM

    Good Luck MOJO, wish you could have stayed in the Teal and Black.

  35. raiderrob21 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:09 AM

    Welcome back home MJD! Cant wait to see you tear it up in the Black Hole.

    RAIDER NATION!!!!!

  36. acousticphan says: Mar 28, 2014 8:10 AM

    Wait…a good player willingly goes to the Raiders?

    Are we living in some sort or Bizarro world?

  37. PeterKingLovesCoqAVin says: Mar 28, 2014 8:11 AM

    Shame he couldn’t sign with a contender.

  38. stoogy says: Mar 28, 2014 8:14 AM

    nothing bad about this!

  39. mrneto72 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:14 AM

    Nice!!!!!. ..let the negative comments begin in 4, 3, 2, 1……

  40. jeremycrowhurst says: Mar 28, 2014 8:15 AM

    That’s just awesome. It gives the Raiders a solid alternative at RB in case McFadden gets injured. Or maybe it’s McFadden that gives them a solid alternative in case Jones-Drew gets injured.

    I mean, hey, all the time these guys have spent in the trainer’s room the last two years, what are the odds that both will be injured at the same time? Law of averages, right? Doesn’t one of them have to be healthy, eventually?

  41. kosarkid says: Mar 28, 2014 8:15 AM

    He was just on the wrong side of 30 to get signed by the Steelers.

  42. jatfly73 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:18 AM

    NICE! Once again Reggie is bringing in quailty guys that everyone else is writting off. We are actually gonna win some games this year!!

  43. uglydingo says: Mar 28, 2014 8:18 AM

    Great player who contributed a lot on a lousy team. The big question is how much gas does the pocket Hercules have left in the tank? Raiders may have got a bargain in MJD.

  44. joemontanawasthegreatest says: Mar 28, 2014 8:20 AM

    Raiders…you don’t spend the cap cash it rolls over to the next year. You don’t HAVE to spend it.

  45. saintsstillwillwin says: Mar 28, 2014 8:24 AM

    Decent signing for them. The Raiders will definitely have a veteran’s presence this year.

  46. jagsfan1 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:26 AM

    He has some mileage on him – but those “disappointing” seasons were due to injury and also playing on perhaps one of the worst offenses in NFL history over the last few years.

    The talent levels, play calling, and coaching under Mularkey and even through 1st half of last year with Gus were absolutely SUB NFL caliber.

    He still has something left. Dude was a warrior and we will miss him.

  47. irishinyourface says: Mar 28, 2014 8:26 AM

    once McFragile and MJD get hurt, they’ll need to sign another back

  48. wishingtonredslur says: Mar 28, 2014 8:27 AM

    Taken 105th in FA but at least he beat Josh Freeman.

  49. bmorepositive123 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:27 AM

    I was hoping he’d go to a contender. I’d like to see him win a ring

  50. sf546 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:28 AM

    Oakland. Still the place where old vets come to die.

  51. thos222 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:33 AM

    This one doesn’t make the best sense. Jones-Drew is old, very old by running back standards, with a lot of miles and a severe decline in yards per rush last season. It does buy them time to develop (after they find) a young back. Also, one would hope this guy carries the load and McFluff is only used as a change of pace back to catch the defence off guard. McFadden is not and never was an every down back.

  52. vstyle23 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:38 AM

    Man the raiders have made a lot of moves, wow. The only question is are they creating a Legends team, …….of the past. Do these guys they picked up have anything left?

  53. 44mpo says: Mar 28, 2014 8:38 AM

    I sure hope he can be the back he was a couple of years ago.

  54. zombiepatriot says: Mar 28, 2014 8:40 AM

    Hopefully this means Sheets is one step closer to returning to the Roughriders as they return to the field to defend their championship season.

  55. footballfan12289 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:45 AM

    Meet the Raiders new Running Back! Because we all know that McFadden wont last 4 games. Congrats MJD!

  56. andyr2120 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:47 AM

    His disappointing seasons were due to injury and his cause was not exactly helped by playing for the Jags. He should do well in a limited role.

  57. kayakattack says: Mar 28, 2014 8:47 AM

    so you could actually “pay someone” to play in Oakland.. market must be really bad

  58. floratiotime says: Mar 28, 2014 8:48 AM

    Fool … money … soon parted.

  59. jkirby317 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:49 AM

    Makes sense… no starting QB so you will need hella RB’s.

    (M. Schaub does not count as a starting QB)

  60. orivar says: Mar 28, 2014 8:50 AM

    Where careers go to die.

  61. wryly1 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:51 AM

    We just saw the Super Bowl won by the team whose starting QB passed the least, an offense that relied on power running and a dogged defense. Yes, league rules are trying to make it more of a passing and scoring game for TV ratings, but on the field, players and coaches know that running and defense still dictate.

  62. floraiders says: Mar 28, 2014 8:53 AM

    Run DMC until he gets hurt, bring in MJD until he gets hurt, finish up the season with Murray and Sheets… All are healthy for the playoffs !

  63. handsofsteelhartofstone says: Mar 28, 2014 8:53 AM

    why would you ever, EVER play for the Raiders? What the jags weren’t terrible enough for him?

  64. God Waves His Terrible Towel™ says: Mar 28, 2014 8:53 AM

    LOL

  65. mikeanthonymirabella says: Mar 28, 2014 8:54 AM

    Looks like the Raiders picked up a decent kick off return specialist and a short yardage and good runner in the open field.

  66. raiderej says: Mar 28, 2014 8:54 AM

    We may be competitive this year. Go Raider Nation! The original and ONLY nation.

  67. rdrrandyrocker43 says: Mar 28, 2014 8:54 AM

    Well i love it when they sign guys from cali,just hope he’s not done.Raiders backfield Mc faddy-2013 hurt__Murry 2014 hurt__Drew 2014 hurt__Sheets 2014 Grey cup hero.Well at least one guy was healthy

  68. God Waves His Terrible Towel™ says: Mar 28, 2014 8:55 AM

    Absolutely pathetic signing.

  69. jtbsteeler says: Mar 28, 2014 8:56 AM

    Being mentioned as having interest from the Steelers will get you paid. Contrast that with Eugene Monroe who was a lower tier player. The Ravens outbid themselves for him.

    I guess he doesn’t care about winning.

  86. darthr8er says: Mar 28, 2014 9:35 AM

    Raiders not signing players who are falling in their careers, more like players with chips on their shoulders trying to prove people like you who think their done

  87. darthr8er says: Mar 28, 2014 9:39 AM

    Reggie’s plan is perfect too bad you people cant comprehend it

  88. chad504boy says: Mar 28, 2014 9:39 AM

    The Raiders are becoming a destination of winners. This franchise will turn the mediocrity corner this year and take 9 games by storm. AFC West, this is your official warning.

  89. El Pollo Loco says: Mar 28, 2014 9:40 AM

    When nobody else wants you you sign in Oakland

  90. pekkle007 says: Mar 28, 2014 9:42 AM

    From Jaguars to Raiders. Does anybody know if MJD is allergic to winning?

  94. hardrockfootballfanatic says: Mar 28, 2014 9:59 AM

    I have always enjoyed watching MJD play. However, he can’t stay healthy. This is one of those times where I would have preferred a player to retire and to have only played for one team.

  95. jviva77 says: Mar 28, 2014 10:02 AM

    So many people saying the Raiders where players go to die and such. If I’m not mistaken he is coming from Jacksonville no? Nothing is a step down from that.

  96. darthr8er says: Mar 28, 2014 10:08 AM

    If pats or steelers signed him “OMG!! MJD will take them to the top and he still one of the top backs in the league WoW!!!!
    When raiders signed him ” HAHA MJD is washed up, what a joke”

  97. dublindemonszfl says: Mar 28, 2014 10:16 AM

    Career’s over, he should’ve gone to Pittsbugh.

    Oakland~ where NFL careers go to die!

  100. jagmankane says: Mar 28, 2014 10:23 AM

    Love all the Jags hate. And ignorance. When was the last time Oakland won a playoff game? Jags were there in 2007 MJDs 2nd season.

    He wanted to get paid knowing his career is almost over and Jacksonville in the middle of a rebuild wasn’t over paying a broken RB, Oakland likely over paid, good for him, but he’s done for. He won’t ever be a 1k yard back again and we in Jax saw he lost a step and a bit of speed. You raider fans that think he is your saving grace are delusional.

  101. saynt614 says: Mar 28, 2014 10:29 AM

    The Raiders quietly have been building a very solid run blocking O-Line.

    MJD running behind this line will generate a lot of 20+ yard runs.

    He ran for 800 behind a very bad o-line last year, if he stays healthy… I could see him running for 1000 yards next season with The Raiders.

  102. natelan69 says: Mar 28, 2014 10:29 AM

    “The Raiders hope that after back-to-back disappointing seasons, Jones-Drew can show he still has something left.”

    I think you meant “back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back” disappointing seasons.

    11 straight seasons without a winning record!

  103. johnnyjagfan says: Mar 28, 2014 10:41 AM

  105. gburr75 says: Mar 28, 2014 10:48 AM

    I get he grew up in Oakland and wanting to play for your hometown team….but he obviously doesn’t want to win. Ya think he’d want a shot with a contender! Good luck MJD!!

  106. steelcurtainn says: Mar 28, 2014 11:01 AM

    He could of played for a contender. Now he gets to be a loser the rest of his career. All to fittting since he played for the Jaguars.

  107. richmondbolt says: Mar 28, 2014 11:10 AM

    Back to back disappointing seasons? Try back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back disappointing seasons. And counting….

  108. robgilman says: Mar 28, 2014 11:15 AM

    Imagine looking at this Raider roster 2 years. I like all these fans that have already written off this team. Maybe theyre right. Maybe all these guys have come collect a paycheck and end their careers…

    But I have a feeling that Bronco/Chief/Charger fans are starting to feel a little nervous. These are players that have worked hard for years to get where they are and still have something to prove. Reggie needs to come up big on draft day. ONE NATION welcome home MJD!

  109. razzlejag says: Mar 28, 2014 11:16 AM

    Desperate times called for desperate measures.

    For those knocking the Jaguars- they outdrew the Steelers the last 2 years, haven’t had a blackout since 2008, have new ownership, GM, and coach. They graded an A in Free Agency amd have 11 picks coming up in a deep draft.

    They are building the world’s largest video boards pus pools, cabanas and palm trees into the stadium.

    So long, MJD, thanks for the great work and thinks for the stupid holdout.

  110. aldavis4president says: Mar 28, 2014 11:20 AM

    It’s funny how teams like the jags,Vikings,Brown’s,chargers,Broncos,chiefs all get like 7comments per team post. The raiders even at their worst continue to be the talk to the town! Everyone secretly wants to be a RAIDER! Love the move, all these people saying he’s not gna be our saviour, well you’re right! We don’t need him to be! Dmacc, James jones, mjd, tuck, Woodley, Smith, cwood, I love it!

  111. raiderlyfe510 says: Mar 28, 2014 11:22 AM

    MJD = Instant Offense. DMAC = Most explosive runner in the NFL .

    Just need a WR to back the Safeties up and we ‘re in business.

  112. cougarts76 says: Mar 28, 2014 11:26 AM

    Oakland…where NFL careers go to—wait a minute, there have already been 27 comments that said that. Please people…think of something original and/or intelligent. That is neither.

  113. drunkadamschefter says: Mar 28, 2014 11:28 AM

    Raiders pulling more bodies off the scrap heap. Justin Tuck, Lamar Woodley, James Jones, Matt Schaub and now MJD?

    Don’t get what they’re trying to accomplish here. And I’m a Browns fan.

  114. jcjaguar says: Mar 28, 2014 11:29 AM

    joetoronto….

    who will have more wins in 2014….Raiders or Jags?

  115. raiderluv72 says: Mar 28, 2014 11:31 AM

    Hate all you want, but you gotta admit that MJD + DMC = a very talented back field. MJD will help keep DMC healthy…book it!

  116. bbrophy1 says: Mar 28, 2014 11:31 AM

    I would love to be objective and be excited for the Raiders moves but MJD, Tuck and Woodley are 3 guys who are always nicked up and clearly on the decline. I hope these deals amount to 1 year contracts to plug holes and McKenize gets some young talent in from the draft. If you keep doing things the same way you will have the same result. They are duplicating the strategy of signing Warren Sapp, Richard Seymour and Jerry Rice long after they gave everything they had to give to football.

  117. dadsource says: Mar 28, 2014 11:32 AM

    Signed on the basis of past performance alone. He will at BEST give you 600 yards if McFadden gets hurt. Runs with a rough crowd and will sucker punch the fan base if you get in his way, then get off on all charges. (St. Augustine, bro?)

    Never gives ‘his all’ and is always about himself. No leadership skills. Buh-byyye!

  118. raidermike34 says: Mar 28, 2014 11:34 AM

    I love it .. All the Haters who have no sense of a football IQ. Lyle Alzado, Romanowski, Plunkett, Etc. all revived their careers to the fullest in Oakland. Just the thought that we are showing love to a guy who grew up a RaiderFan and want to prove his worth to the very same that are voicing now, only makes this a pitch perfect scenario to shut you all up!

I was a little interested in what Oakland would do with all their cap money before free agency, and they elected to let their talented guys walk (Veldheer, Houston)…brought in used garbage (Schaub, Tuck, MJD) and will continue to blow draft picks (Hayden, McClain, Heyward-Bey, Russell)

    Not even slightly worried about Oak. They’re irrelevant in the NFLs landscape today.

    Signing of over the hill players nobody else wanted proves McKenzie is desperate .Raider fan since the 60’s and Mckenzie needs to go and stop collecting a check for producing a 4-12 team .Next year 2-14 or 0-16.

    GO RAIDERS!!!!

    The Raider fan base’s delusion is somewhat worrisome. Just because this joke of a franchise finally has a little bit of cap space to sign some FAs, does not mean it’s all going to magically get you into the playoffs.
    Denver Broncos notable FA acquisitions of the last few years:
    QB: Peyton Manning
    WR: Wes Welker
    CB: DRC & Aqib Talib
    S: TJ Ward
    DL: Demarcus Ware
    Oakland Raiders notable FA acquisitions of late:
    QB: Matt Schaub
    WR: James Jones
    DL: Justin Tuck & Lamaar Woodley

    John Elway, still killing the Raiders even when he doesn’t suit up.

    Commitment to excrement. Just lose baby. I would comment on the consecutive non-winning streak, but I’ve actually lost count.

    Gosh, Big Reg has really used the cap space money on garbage! Is he channeling Al Davis?

    If 3 yards per carry is the goal, the fade are set up nicely.

    Have fun MJD! Oakland, where players and careers go to die.

    The EBT Nation should get ready for a Super Bowl Run, great pickup.

    Signed

    San Francisco 49ers

    PS

    Jim Drukenmller is making a comeback, Reggie” Ted Thompson” Mc Kenzie should give a look.

    Hate on Haters…..we love the hate and jealousy…

    Home Sweet Home…welcome back MJD!

    Go Raiders…Go Reggie….

  132. vegasgreek says: Mar 28, 2014 1:05 PM

    All the jealous haters got it wrong ! The Raiders signed all of these older players for leadership in the locker room and to contribute to forming a winning foundation. MJD will be an excellent part time player in Oakland and provide leader ship in the locker room. DJAX just got released . If the Raiders sign him and draft WR Sammy Watkins , WATCH OUT !

    Sometimes you have to spend a season in semi-pro football to get healthy and earn your way back to the Show. Hope to see MJD back in the NFL after his stint with the Raiders…

  136. spankmarley says: Mar 28, 2014 1:28 PM

    Hey Charger, Chief and Bronco fans… As bad as the Raiders have been lately you guys, we still own the AFC West. Check the stats and yes history is a part of the game! So while you sit there and post your nonsense remember even after all these years of being “irrelevant” your teams cant even sniff our legacy! Thanks for the daily laughs!!! 15 division titles and 3 Super Bowls, suck it losers!!!

  137. screenpass says: Mar 28, 2014 1:44 PM

    15 starts, over 1,100 all purpose yards, 43 catches, 5 TDs.

    If MJD has another “disappointing season” like this one next year I’m sure the Raiders will be able to live with it.

  138. andreboy1 says: Mar 28, 2014 2:11 PM

    This is the worst signing of them all.

    RB’s fall of a cliff right about his age and he’ll just hold back younger talent that they can develop.

    This whole offseason is a complete disaster and an extremely short term fix.

    And if it’s a three year deal then that makes Reggie certifiably insane.

  139. raiderraffeal says: Mar 28, 2014 2:29 PM

    Wow, so many Raider-Haters on here… I love how you people say these FA are “Washed-Up” or are on a “Money Grab” when they sign with the Raiders. From what I have read, all the FA contracts have been cap friendly deals that do not support the “Money Grab” theory and the whole “Washed-Up” thing is a joke. I’m sure your teams QB won’t think Justin Tuck is “Washed-Up” after he’s just had his head bounced off the turf from a Justin Tuck sack. RAIDER NATION!!!!

  140. whyuknowdat says: Mar 28, 2014 2:35 PM

    Doesn’t it get tiresome to hate on a team coming off back 2 back 4-12 seasons? What 11 or 12 losing seasons? Not worried about what my team is doing but let’s go see what Oakland is doing. Hahaha I love it haters.

  141. razzlejag says: Mar 28, 2014 2:44 PM

    I don’t hate the Raiders (except for the bogus call on Ray Sugar Bear Hamilton back in ’76 but the Tuck Rule made that even) but I don’t really understand what your GM is doing.

    He let 2 talented guys walk in FA and brought in the over the hill guys. #confusedI am

  142. rawdog2013 says: Mar 28, 2014 3:04 PM

    MJD, McFadden, Reece and RB in draft = great job reggie. This the most excitement in years

    “The Raiders hope that after back-to-back disappointing seasons, Jones-Drew can show he still has something left.”

    I think you meant “back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back” disappointing seasons.

    11 straight seasons without a winning record!
    ——————-
    48 straight seasons without a Super Bowl victory. I’ll take 11 straight losing seasons over that any day.

    Then it must seem odd to you that the Giants keep signing those guys.

  145. racerx1225 says: Mar 29, 2014 7:41 AM

    Great signing. We have 4 talented RB’s now and much better, significantly improved OL, WR and QB.

  146. completefan says: Apr 1, 2014 3:23 PM

    MJD will end up third on the depth chart behind McFadden and Sheets.

  147. SAV says: Apr 2, 2014 9:08 AM

    whats the obsession with playing for crap teams MJD? Oh, they pay the most lol
