Bidding Farewell: Raiders Say Goodbye to Star Running Back, Josh Jacobs

Antonio Pierce expresses deep disappointment over Josh Jacobs’ departure: “That really stings”

In 2023, the Las Vegas Raiders said goodbye to their star running back, Josh Jacobs. After five successful seasons with the team, he decided to leave and sign with the Packers as a free agent. Antonio Pierce, the head coach of the Raiders, expressed his disappointment at losing such a talented player.

Jacobs was a vital part of the team and had a strong connection to the Raiders. However, Pierce understood that decisions in the NFL often come down to business. The famous saying “money talks, BS walks” may have played a role in Jacobs’ decision to move on. Despite his disappointment, Pierce wished Jacobs well in his future endeavors.

The departure of Josh Jacobs was particularly impactful for the team. In 2023, he rushed for 805 yards and scored six touchdowns in just 13 games. The year prior, he had led the league with impressive stats, including 1,653 rushing yards and 2,053 yards from scrimmage. His talent and importance to the Raiders were clear, but ultimately, he made the decision to move on to greener pastures.
