Simply put by Josh Jacobs himself on X: "I'm back." With those words Jacobs confirmed reports that he is returning to the Las Vegas Raiders after a holdout that lasted the entire preseason camp.

Jacobs refused to sign the team's franchise tag for $10.1 million and will instead receive $12 million for this season. Jacobs was the leading rusher in the NFL last season and had more than two-thousand scrimmage yards.

There was a report that the Miami Dolphins were interested in making a trade for Jacobs, but the Raiders wanted no part of it.

Head coach Josh McDaniels told the media after Saturday's preseason loss in Dallas that he's elated Jacobs will be back. He said he "loves the player and the person." McDaniels wants Jacobs in camp as soon as possible. "The goal will be to get him in and get going and we'll do the right thing."

On the Raiders television broadcast, GM Dave Ziegler said he is looking forward to have Josh Jacobs on the field in the opener on September 10.
