Josh Jacobs From No.28 To No.8
The talented running back, Josh, recently made headlines by announcing his decision to change his jersey number.
Josh Jacobs seized the opportunity presented by an NFL rule change two years ago, which permitted players in specific positions to wear single-digit numbers.
He bid farewell to his No. 28 and opted to wear No. 8 instead. This means we will see Jacobs donning his iconic collegiate jersey number.
The Raiders have placed the franchise tag on their running back. However, Jacobs has reportedly not signed the franchise tag offer.
The franchise tag for running backs this upcoming season will pay him $10,091,000.
