Josh Jacobs Backs Love To Be ‘Next Superstar In This League’

RB Josh Jacobs is excited to join the Green Bay Packers, or just relieved to have left the Raiders.

Josh Jacobs (26) signed a four-year, $48 million contract with Green Bay in free agency. While he didn’t explicitly trash the Raiders, his comments hit at some frustration.

Josh Jacobs says he’s excited to ‘catch the ball more’ in Matt LaFleur’s scheme. He even said Green Bay has him ‘running real routes’.

“I honestly think the sky is the limit in this offense,” Jacobs said

“Obviously, with having a special guy in Jordan Love, you know, and having a good offensive line and some good receivers out there makes it a lot easier for me, but just to be able to see the game plan and things that they want me to do this year, the things that they’re allowing me to do, I just think it’s going to be a special year.

“Just to be able to come out and actually show that I can catch the ball more,” Jacobs said. “Not just that but trusting me enough to be able to pick up protections. It’s just so special when you got a guy like Jordan Love back there, and you can’t really just load the box every play, and you make defenses decide what they want to stop. I think that’s going to be the biggest help for me this year.”

“To me, just from what I’ve seen, he has all the traits and all the tools to be a superstar in this league,” Jacobs said. “I think that as he keeps continuing to play and gets experience and becomes more confident in his abilities and what he can do, he’s going to be the next superstar in this league, for sure.”
