Oakland Raiders have re-signed premier running-back Darren McFadden today on a one-year deal.
The deal is said to be worth $4 million, and it's understood that the contract will act as a make or break deal for the injury prone 26-year-old.
Adam Schefter tweeted, "Raiders re-signed RB Darren McFadden to a one-year, $4 million deal, per source."
McFadden has only started 51 games in his six seasons in the NFL, which proves how injury prone the back is.
During his career so far he has averaged 8.5 games a season and the decision to sign him to a $4 million deal certainly won't go down well with some Raiders fans.
He has been reported to be gaining interest from other NFL teams before free agency began today, but the Raiders have quickly quietened any speculation with their move.
McFadden has all the potential, but he has only managed one 1,000 yard season in his career.
In 2010 and 2011 he enjoyed great periods of play, as he averaged offer five yards a carry in those season.
However, in the last two years he has only gained 3.3 yards a carry, which means this new deal will definitely be make or break for McFadden.
