This outcome draws parallels to the situation involving New York Giants’ running back Saquon Barkley earlier this offseason. Barkley, who also received the franchise tag, opted for an $11 million contract supplemented by incentive clauses.
As the 2023 NFL season approaches, Josh Jacobs’s impact on the field is poised to play a pivotal role in the team’s quest for success.
