Report: Jacobs, Raiders not close to extension ahead of Monday's deadline

The Las Vegas Raiders and running back Josh Jacobs aren’t close to striking a long-term deal ahead of Monday’s deadline for franchise-tagged players to ink extensions, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports.

Jacobs’ status for training camp and Week 1 is uncertain if the two sides don’t agree on an extension. The running back has yet to sign his franchise tag, worth $10.1 million.

A former first-round pick in 2019, Jacobs enjoyed a breakout campaign with the Raiders last season. He led the NFL with 1,653 rushing yards, while his 12 rushing scores also tied a career high.

The 25-year-old exceeded 1,000 yards on the ground in three of his four seasons.

The deadline for franchise-tagged players to sign long-term deals is Monday at 4 p.m. ET.
