A couple weeks back, we looked at the possibility of the Raiders trading Darren McFadden, citing that it would make sense in that he is entering the final year of his contract and it would help address other needs, but ultimately deciding it would be stupid for the Raiders to trade someone who is their best player when healthy and is only 25.
Speaking with reporters on Thursday, though, GM Reggie McKenzie put to rest any notion that he will be trading the running back. Via Jerry McDonald of BANG:
“I’m confident Darren’s going to play his last season, regardless of what’s out there,” McKenzie said. “We have no decision to do anything with Darren.”
A full transcript of McKenzie’s chat with reporters is here.
