According to reports, running back Darren McFadden has signed a 1-year, $4 million deal to stay in Oakland. In what is really the first surprising move of the day (if you had been paying attention for the past week), the Oakland Raiders have reportedly re-signed Darren McFadden to a 1-year deal. Many assumed McFadden would be let go when his contract expired last season, however Reggie McKenzie apparently saw enough in McFadden to bring him back for one more season. Interesting to note the one-year deal considering Oakland did draft Latavius Murray last season, but he missed the whole season with an injury. This could be a temporary stop-gap until they see what they have in Murray. Since being drafted by Oakland in 2008 with the 4th overall selection, McFadden has waffled between impressive and injured. In six seasons, McFadden has played in just 67 games — with 13 appearances being a career high (in 2008 and 2010).
