Raiders re-sign RB Ameer Abdullah to 1-year deal

It looks like the Raider are working through their upcoming free agent roster one position at a time. Starting with running back.

This week the team locked in Josh Jacobs with the franchise tag. And today they have brought back Ameer Abdullah on a one-year deal as first reported by Pro Football Chase and later confirmed by Aaron Wilson of KPRC Houston among others.

Abdullah’s return is a bit of a surprise considering he was not utilized quite as much last season as expected.

He caught 25 passes, but many of those were dumpoffs on third-and-long with little expectation he would convert it.

To Abdullah’s credit, he also returns kicks and averaged over 20 yards per return.

Most likely, it was a matter of being affordable. If his contract on a return is an easy one, it gets done quickly and keeps him off the market. It doesn’t guarantee he has a spot on the 2023 season roster. If all goes well, he will be have some strong competition for snaps.
