Gruden ‘comfortable’ with Doug Martin as 3-down back, Jacobs has got to beat him out

Last Thursday, the Raiders made Josh Jacobs the top back selected in the draft at 24 overall in the first round. They touted him as the complete package who could stay on the field all three downs due to his ability to block and catch passes out of the backfield as well as be a power runner.

The Douggernaut is back!

Literally ten minutes after putting out a list of potential running backs the Raiders could sign to replace the injured Isaiah Crowell — which included Doug Martin — the Raiders have re-signed the 2018 team starter, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garaffolo. The #Raiders are bringing back RB Doug Martin, sources tell me and @wyche89. Martin ran got 723 yards with Oakland last year.
