Report: Raiders, Maurice Jones-Drew agree to deal

Veteran running back Maurice Jones-Drew traveled out to the West Coast on Thursday night for a meeting with the Oakland Raiders, and many believed that a deal was going to be coming in the near future.

As it turns out, a deal is reportedly already done.

According to, Jones-Drew has agreed to terms on a contract with the Raiders and the deal will be signed and official if Jones-Drew is able to pass his physical with the team.

This is the same situation we had with Mark Sanchez and the Philadelphia Eagles a day ago, so it appears all but certain that a deal will fall into place.

Jones-Drew will now be finishing out his professional career with his hometown team.

    Oh great run dmc and mdj together on the same team.I predict that both will play a combined 9 games, opening the door for L.murphy and kory sheets

      Its Murray not Murphy. The fact that they can rotate between the two of them more frequently will definitely decrease their chances of injury and I’m sure Murray and Sheets will be solid too. The competition heating up in Oakland is only a good thing.
