Raiders' Jalen Richard: Expected back on one-year deal
Fellow running backs Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin are slated to hit free agency, which could well lead to some changes in Oakland's 2019 backfield composition. Richard's ability as a pass-catcher is something the Raiders clearly value and prefer to keep in the mix. The 25-year-old was effective in that area in 2018, as Richard more than doubled his previous career high and recorded 68 total receptions. He also improved upon his ball security with three fumbles (two lost) over a career-high 412 offensive snaps. In 2017, three of Richard's eight fumbles were lost. All this played a role in the Raiders wanting him back for at least one more year, as any other suitors would have to surrender a second-round pick in order to sign the fourth-year back.
