Raiders’ GM Reggie McKenzie doesn’t plan on trading Darren McFadden

About a month ago there was a rumor that the Oakland Raiders might dangle running back Darren McFadden on the trade market to see what they can get in return.  It looks like that’s not going to happen.

According to Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune, Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has committed to McFadden for the 2013 season.

“I’m confident Darren is going to play his last season regardless of what’s out there. We have no decision to do anything with Darren,” said McKenzie.

Next season is McFadden’s last under his current contract.  He’ll be a free agent in 2014.
