Las Vegas Raiders: Likely destinations for Josh Jacobs in 2023
No. 1: Philadelphia Eagles
Looking at the 2022 NFL landscape, no team has surprised in a good way like the Philadelphia Eagles have. The Eagles went out and got AJ Brown to complement Devonta Smith on the outside, and it has led to an MVP-caliber season for starting quarterback, Jalen Hurts.
Current Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders is having a terrific season, rushing for over 1,100 yards and finding the end zone 11 times on the ground. However, Sanders is also a free agent next offseason, and when you compare him to Jacobs, the current Raiders running back would be an upgrade.
The truth is, Jacobs is going to be a top back this offseason, as he and Saquon Barkley are likely to find new homes after strong starts to their NFL careers. If he can land with any of these three teams, he will be in a position to win on a weekly basis, something he is used to from his time at Alabama.
