Ameer Abdullah has agreed to a new deal with the Raiders, according to multiple reports.

Offensively, Abdullah caught 25 passes for 211 yards with a touchdown. He also had four carries for 20 yards.
A Lions second-round pick in 2015, Abdullah has 1,594 rushing yards with six rushing touchdowns plus 144 catches for 1,076 yards with eight TDs in his eight-year career.
Abdullah has also spent time with the Vikings and Panthers.
