The Las Vegas Raiders are re-signing RB Theo Riddick to a one-year deal that includes $50,000 guaranteed, according to Field Yates

Theo Riddick

This comes just a few hours after the Raiders agreed to terms on a two-year deal with RB Kenyan Drake.

Riddick, 29, is a former sixth-round pick of the Lions back in 2013. He was in the third year of his four-year, $12.3 million contract and set to make base salaries of $2.7 million and $3.2 million over the final two years of the agreement when the Lions released him. 

The Broncos later signed Riddick to a contract, but he was placed on injured reserve with a shoulder injury coming out of the preseason. 

Riddick signed a one-year deal with the Raiders last year and was on and off of their roster. 

In 2020, Riddick appeared in four games for the Raiders and rushed for 14 yards on six carries (3.5 YPC) to go along with five receptions for 43 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
