DMAC blows off Raiders attempt to discuss extention



After several injury plagued seasons, and a season in which he he averaged a league low 3.27 yards per carry, Darren McFadden decided this is not a good time to discuss extending his career in Oakland when the Raiders reached out to him recently.

I myself was a little surprised to hear the team had made the move considering a second contract for a franchise running back can be dicey at best, but with a guy who has failed to play more than 13 games in any of his 5 seasons in the NFL , I kind of felt it was a huge leap of faith for the organization to reach out to him.

There is no doubt that McFadden can be a game changer when on the field, but for a guy with one 1000 yard season in five years, and a 60 million dollar contract, I was a bit surprised to see the Raiders get the cold shoulder after reaching out to a scheme dependent player they have just retooled their entire offense around.

Even if he manages to play 16 games this season I would be a bit leery about giving Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice type money to a player that waited till his contract year to play a full season.
