Josh Jacobs won’t be the only running back sticking around Las Vegas in 2023.

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

Abdullah was a key special teams contributor for Las Vegas last season, averaging 20.9 yards on 26 kick returns. But he also ended up playing 50 percent of the Raiders’ special teams snaps.

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.

  1. Now that Josh Jacobs got paid, he’ll have a different ailment every five minutes that keeps him out. This is a good signing. He’ll probably play more than Jacobs.

  2. My Lions cannot draft in the second round. AA has cobbled together a respectable career, but not 2nd round material. Glad to see he’s still plugging away.

    Highly doubtful, although he will fumble more.

  4. Ok cool like I said when they announced the Jacobs tag… who is handing him the ball?

    This signing puts them over the edge……..Super Bowl here we come!
    It looks like you haven’t a clue about special teams needs.

  6. It’s hilarious how many anti-Raider people post daily on the Raider news. They live for it Lol

  7. Good special teams player. It’s a value some of you clearly cannot comprehend.
