Signing with the Las Vegas Raiders in 2020 worked out pretty good for both wide receiver Nelson Agholor and running back Devontae Booker.

Shortly after Agholor agreed a two-year, $26 million deal with the New England Patriots, Booker agreed to terms with the New York Giants on a two-year, $6 million deal.

Both Agholor and Booker signed meager one-year deals with the Raiders last year. Both players enjoyed good seasons with Las Vegas.

Booker started the season hot, but cooled off as Josh Jacobs’ backup. Booker, who spent his first four seasons in the NFL with the Denver Broncos, had 423 yards rushing and averaged 4.5 yards a carry.

The Raiders will now need a primary backup for starting tailback Josh Jacobs. But backup running backs are easy to come by, so there is no rush.

In addition to Agholor and Booker, defensive tackle Maliek Collins also left the Raiders on Monday after signing a one-year deal. Collins, who had a poor season with Las Vegas, is headed to the Houston Texans,
