Report: Raiders agree to deal with Devontae Booker


The Raiders missed out on signing Frank Gore, but have found some younger backfield help.

(Though, that would apply to any running back they’d sign).

According to Sean Cunningham of KXTV in Sacramento, former Broncos running back Devontae Booker plans to sign with the Raiders.

Booker put up solid numbers as a rookie (877 combined yards), but the 2016 fourth-rounder’s role gradually decreased, and the Broncos let him walk.

The Raiders drafted Lynn Bowden in the third round to back up Josh Jacobs, and have a reasonably deep group in the backfield.

  1. Depth, plain and simple, no guarantees to even make the team

  2. How much money are these guys paying Jon Gruden to finish in the bottom third of the conference?

  3. Booker won’t make the team as more than a tackling dummy on the practice squad.

    Should’ve kept DeAndre Washington. Better player


    Washington’s primary sin was that he was a serviceable player from the previous Raiders coaching regime. Gruden is finishing up his purging of such players.

  5. Comment on video with Amy Trask…..she predicted that Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas will have a significant number of visiting team fans, far more than in Oakland. I’m wondering, if this is true, where will those visiting fans buy their tickets. The stadium PSLs are sold out to season ticket holders. I would assume that these were purchased predominantly by Raiders fans, and some by ticket brokers. So unless a huge amount of PSLs were purchased by ticket brokers, which I would think the team would try to discourage……then many Raiders fans would have to resell their seat tickets on ticket broker websites. Do you agree? What percentage of PSL holders do you think are Raiders fans? Of those, how many games per year do you think the average Raiders fan season ticket holder will attend?

  6. better fit derek “captain checkdown” carr than their first round pick

  7. Booker is another solid addition. The Raiders have added 7 or 8 really good free agents, and had another great draft. The team will be loaded with talent. My biggest reason to be hopeful is the fact that Jon Gruden is one of the few coaches who have won a super bowl without a superstar QB. Gruden has a shot to join the elite group who have done it twice.

  8. It’s rather amusing to see Raider fans praising this signing. They must have fond memories of Booker trampling the Raiders twice a year. Hopefully he can give you the same production he gave the Broncos.
