When he entered the NFL, Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden was one of the most coveted young players available. Over five seasons in the NFL, he’s shown glimpses of his potential, but he’s yet to take off due to injuries and inconsistency. Now, as McFadden enters the final year of his contract, the running back told NFL.com that he is looking to put his past behind him and produce a big season for the Raiders. "There's always going to be things that gets your blood boiling," McFadden said. "But last year was last year. It's something I put behind me. We're moving forward, and I'm looking forward to a new season." McFadden was once again limited by injuries last season, as he was only available for 12 games. He’s now started only 19 contests over the past two years, and the most games he’s appeared in during a season over his five-year career is 13. As a result of his ailments and the struggles of Oakland’s offensive scheme, McFadden only averaged 58.9 yards per game, with 3.3 yards per rush. He had been solid in 2010-11, averaging over 5.4 yards per rush, and his best campaign came in ’11 when he finished the year with 1,157 yards rushing, 507 yards receiving and 10 total touchdowns.
