Las Vegas Raiders Sign Young Running Back


The Las Vegas Raiders are dealing with a major contract dispute with arguably the best running back in the NFL in Josh Jacobs, and with no guarantee that he turns up at training camp at all, they've now gone ahead and added some insurance.

On Friday, the team announced the signing of Super Bowl Champion and former Chiefs running back Damien Williams, who will add plenty of depth and experience to this team as they await a resolution with Jacobs. 

In 98 games at the NFL level, Williams has tallied 1,397 rushing yards and 14 Touchdowns, while adding another 1,209 yards and 11 Touchdowns as a receiver, and with this opportunity, he could break out into a solid backup behind Jacobs, or a starter if needed.
