The three time pro bowl running back from Oakland, California has decided that he will suit up in Black and Silver for the 2014 season if he passes his physical. The Oakland Raiders have been struggling for a long time trying to compete with other teams in their division because of the lack of talent on both sides of the football. It’s been 10 seasons since they’ve had a winning record or been to the playoffs. This past season, the Raiders finished the season 4-12 sitting at fourth place in the AFC West division. Hopefully, Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen makes some more moves in free agency because it’s been a while since the Raiders had a winning season.
The addition of running back Maurice Jones-Drew will give Oakland a solid running backs corps. Since current Oakland Raider running back Darren McFadden has been struggling with injuries since entering the league, Jones-Drew should be able to fill his role and give Oakland the ground attack they’ve been looking to have for years. Maurice Jones-Drew is a huge get for the Oakland Raiders and it could only get better for them. Not on;y has Oakland signed Jones-Drew at the running back position, they’ve acquired quarterback Matt Schaub from the Houston Texans and Defensive End Justin Tuck from the New York Giants. I expect the three time pro-bowler Maurice Jones-Drew to be productive and make an immediate impact for this Oakland Raiders football team in the 2014 season as long as the offensive line is doing their job.
