Darren McFadden’s agent claims his client accepted less money to re-sign with the Raiders, according to the Contra Costa Times.
“We did have real interest from four or five other teams — one offered more money,” said Ian Greengross, McFadden’s agent. “Darren wanted to stay a Raider. He felt like he still had something to prove in silver and black.”
My guess is that the other team’s offer wasn’t that much more. He only got just over a million from Oakland.
