HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Josh Jacobs, who led the NFL in rushing last season, has received the franchise tag from the Las Vegas Raiders, a person familiar with the situation said Monday.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the move had not been announced. An announcement was expected to come later Monday, the person said.

NFL Network first reported the Raiders’ decision.

Jacobs would earn $10.1 million next season under the franchise tag. The parties negotiated a long-term agreement, and if they reach an agreement by July 15, the Raiders would withdraw the tag.

Jacobs said on Pro Bowl week he had no interest in playing under the franchise tag, saying he would be a “hero turned villain.”

If Jacobs doesn’t agree to a long-term deal, he would play under the terms of the franchise tag or sit out and lose his salary. That’s what Le’Veon Bell did when the Pittsburgh Steelers placed the tag on him in 2018.
