Raiders Come to Terms with Free Agent RB Crowell, LB Marshall

The Raiders free agency purge continues, as Thursday they came to terms with running back Isaiah Crowell and linebacker Brandon Marshall.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter states that Crowell will earn up to $2.5 million on a one-year deal, while Marshall’s deal is worth up to $4.1 million.

Crowell last year with the Jets rushed for 685 yards, six scores, and he put up 4.8 yards per carry.

He set a franchise mark with 218 rushing yards in a week five win over the Broncos, which accounted for a lot of his yards on the season.

The Jets released Crowell when they signed free agent Le’Veon Bell.

The 29-year-old Marshall had spent the last six seasons with the Denver Broncos, and was on the roster when the team won Super Bowl 50.

Denver decided not to exercise their team option with two years left on his contract, allowing Marshall to become a free agent.

Last season he played in 11 games, putting up 42 tackles.
