Raiders Re-Sign RB Abdullah

The Las Vegas Raiders have reportedly agreed to terms with running back Ameer Abdullah on a one-year contract, according to Aaron Wilson of KPRC. 

Abdullah, who was initially drafted as a second-rounder by the Lions in the 2015, has spent his eight seasons in the NFL on four different teams including; Detroit, Vikings, Carolina Panthers, and the Raiders. 

Although the 29-year-old traditionally came out of the backfield as a runner in his career, he was more so utilized as a pass-catcher for the Las Vegas club last season. He only had four carries for 20 yards, but caught 25 passes for 211 yards, and one touchdown in his 2022-23 campaign. 

Abdullah was also a key special teams piece for the Raiders last season averaging 20.9 yards on 26 kick returns.
