Josh Jacobs is not happy with his team’s recent roster moves. The NFL rusher posted a message of displeasure on his Twitter account following the Raiders’ latest trade.
That tweet has now gone viral, leading many football fans to post their reactions.
On Tuesday, Las Vegas announced its decision to trade tight end Darren Waller to the Giants for a third round draft pick.

This comes after the franchise released starting quarterback Derek Carr earlier in the offseason. He’s since landed with the Saints.
Josh Jacobs has grown frustrated with the Raiders’ vision of the future, and he vented those frustrations online.

Fans and media quickly commented on that remark. Most seem to agree with the tailback.
As a Las Vegan, I wholeheartedly agree.

Some are saying Josh Jacobs should leave Las Vegas. Unfortunately, he may not have that option as the Raiders recently used the franchise tag on the rusher.
LEAVE THAT TEAM YOU DESERVE BETTER

Hey, maybe there’s a positive side? He’ll see no shortage of usage in the Raiders backfield next year.
Sorry Josh but you may get 450 touches next year

Last year, Josh Jacobs led the NFL in rushing with 1,653 yards. He also tied a career-high with 12 touchdowns on the ground.
We’ll see if he’s able to have the same type of success with some of his top playmakers on their way out of Sin City.
