The NFL free agent market is moving swiftly and the Oakland Raiders have made an addition. After watching offensive tackle Jared Veldheer leave for the Arizona Cardinals and Lamarr Houston bolting for the Chicago Bears, Oakland has re-signed veteran running back Darren McFadden.
Adam Schefter of ESPN passed along the report:
Raiders re-signed RB Darren McFadden to a one-year, $4 million deal, per source.

Multiple teams were expected to show interest in the free agent running back, but the small deal shows that most of the “interest” may have just been agent speak.
McFadden is one of the first running backs to sign a new deal in free agency.
