Could First-Round Pick RB Josh Jacobs Be a Camp Holdout?

The Raiders have just one unsigned pick from this year’s draft class, RB Josh Jacobs.

Jacobs is expected to be a featured part of the club’s revamped offensive attack in 2019, but according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic, negotiations between player and team are not going well, Rory Parks of ProFootball Rumors reports.

Tafur adds that there is a growing belief that Jacobs will not report to training camp on July 23, when rookies are scheduled to arrive.

Of course, since the 2011 collective bargaining agreement, rookie holdouts have become quite rare, given that the contract values and signing bonuses are predetermined.

Some first-year players have taken issue with offset language, but Jacob’s concerns apparently involve the payment schedule of his signing bonus.
