Doug Martin to re-sign with Raiders, per report

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

It was reported on Wednesday that Oakland Raiders running back Isaiah Crowell tore his Achilles. With him set to miss the entire 2019 NFL season, the Raiders are reportedly re-signing running back Doug Martin, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.

This move makes perfect sense considering Martin had a fairly productive season when he took over the lead rushing duties following Marshawn Lynch’s season-ending injury in 2018.

Look for Martin to potentially compete with rookie Josh Jacobs — whom the Raiders selected in the first round — for the starting role in the upcoming months.
