Rashad Jennings to sign with Giants, Darren McFadden to re-sign with Raiders

Between free-agent running backs Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings, it seemed more likely that the Raiders would retain Jennings and that McFadden would leave via free agency.

Instead, it's the opposite.

Per Fallon Smith of CSN Bay Area, it "looks like" McFadden will sign a one-year offer from the Raiders.

In six NFL seasons, McFadden has played a total of 67 games and has never played more than 13 games in any season.

When healthy, he was productive in 2010 and 2011, but he has had underwhelming production over the past two seasons.

Over the past two seasons, he has 330 carries for 1,086 yards (3.29 yards per carry) and seven touchdowns in 22 games. In addition, he has 59 receptions for 366 yards and a touchdown during that span as well.

With McFadden's durability concerns, Latavius Murray, their sixth-round pick last year, will be a sleeper in fantasy drafts later this year with plenty of upside.

Meanwhile, Jennings tweeted that he will be a Giant:

Jennings was highly productive in November and December. In his final eight games of the season, he rushed for 593 yards (4.67 YPC) and added 24 receptions for 195 yards while scoring a total of six touchdowns.

Earlier today, the Giants re-signed Peyton Hillis to a two-year deal.

While Andre Brown is an unrestricted free agent, the Giants expect/hope that David Wilson will be able to play again this season.
