WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

The Raiders are signing Jakob Johnson.

The Raiders just lost fullback Alec Ingold to the Dolphins, so Josh McDaniels is bringing in a player he coached with New England to help fill the role. Johnson should be a lead blocker for Josh Jacobs and company this season.

The Patriots are signing Jakob Johnson to a one-year deal.

Johnson was an exclusive rights free agent, so this was expected. The 26-year-old fullback has done well to stick around with the Patriots for a few years after coming over via the NFL's International Player Pathway Program in 2019.

The Patriots officially placed Jakob Johnson on injured reserve.

This was reportedly going to happen because of Johnson's shoulder injury suffered in last Thursday' game against the Giants. Johnson is the second Patriots fullback to be placed on IR this season, as James Develin was previously placed on IR because of a neck injury. It'll be interesting to see what New England does at the position, but they could pivot and use less of a fullback moving forward. Sony Michel and company having their third fullback in front of them is less than ideal. Johnson was an International Pathway Program signing by the Pats this offseason, and we hope to see him back on the field next season.
