In a recent tweet by the NFL Network, Brooks emphasized Jacobs’ importance:

NFL Network: “‘Outside of Jordan Love, I think he’s the biggest piece to this offense.’ @BuckyBrooks sees the importance of @iAM_JoshJacobs to the @packers offense.”

Brooks’ statement reflects the multifaceted value Jacobs brings to the Packers. While Jordan Love, the young quarterback waiting in the wings, is certainly a crucial piece for the future, Jacobs’ impact on the immediate success of the offense is undeniable.

The Raiders Years

Josh Jacobs had already cemented his place as one of the best running backs in the storied history of the Raiders. In five seasons with the Raiders, he rushed for an impressive 5,545 yards, ranking third in franchise history for rushing yards. His average of 76.0 rushing yards per game topped even the legendary Bo Jackson’s record. Jacobs’ resume speaks volumes: he was a first-round pick in 2019, finished second in NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year voting, and earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2020. However, despite his individual success, the Raiders had only one winning season during his tenure. The emotional rollercoaster of close calls and missed opportunities left Jacobs hungry for more.

Josh Jacobs’s New Beginning in Green Bay

 

Now, Josh Jacobs finds himself in Green Bay, donning the iconic Packers jersey. His arrival is met with high expectations, and rightfully so. The Packers paid a lucrative price for him, recognizing his league-leading rushing title in 2022 and his impact on the Raiders’ offense. But Jacobs isn’t content with individual accolades; he’s focused on leaving a lasting legacy in the NFL.
