The Las Vegas Raiders plan to franchise tag running back Josh Jacobs if the two sides can’t agree to a long-term extension, sources told NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
The tag deadline is March 7.
Vegas currently has about $48.4 million in cap space, according to OverTheCap. The running back franchise tag is just over $10 million this year.
Jacobs led the NFL with 1,653 rushing yards this season. He also contributed 400 receiving yards and scored 12 total touchdowns.
The 25-year-old’s efforts earned him his first-career All-Pro selection and second Pro Bowl nod.
The Raiders selected Jacobs 24th overall in the 2019 NFL Draft. Las Vegas declined the back’s fifth-year option last offseason.
