Raiders sign RB Devontae Booker (1 year, $1.05 M)

Recommended Posts

We needed another RB to pair with Jacobs and Richard. Would have preferred a bigger bruiser but Booker seems like a good receiving option at the least.

He is good at catching the ball out of the backfield and decent catching it at the second level. Once he catches said ball, he might as well sit down on the field because he does nothing. And he may be the slowest running back that I have ever seen coming out a hole. Its almost like watching someone play with weights in his shoes. As long as he is RB3, he is passable if the offense uses runners as pass catchers alot.

Good blocker & decent 3rd down receiving option. He’s not the greatest pure runner but that’s probably not why they signed him.

Should look a tad better behind the Raiders OL

Roster fodder. Thought he’d be good in the NFL, swing and a miss.

not a pure runner, still dont see him as a direct RB2 type to fill in the early down work adequately if jacobs misses time. another passing down guy

Apparently Raiders spoken to Shady McCoy before signing Booker. I think shady would have paired up nicely with Jacobs
