Darren McFadden will wait until after the season to talk about an extension with the Raiders

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network,  running back Darren McFadden wants to wait until after this season to talk about a new contract with the Raiders.

 McFadden is entering a contract year, and the team has checked in with him about an extension. But McFadden wants to return to his old self and be in a position to command big dollars after the season, rather than talk now. The reality is, that’d be a win-win for both sides.

There’s no doubt that McFadden has the talent to be one of the NFL’s top running backs, but he’s had a hard time staying healthy.  Now that he’s in a contract year he has to prove that he can stay on the field in order to try and cash in during the offseason.
