The Raiders are bringing back Darren McFadden for 2014.

The club and McFadden have reached a one-year, $4 million contract, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Tuesday.

According to Joel Corry of, $2.25 million of McFadden’s compensation is in “unlikely to be earned incentives.”

With Rashad Jennings likely departing in free agency, McFadden would likely be the clear-cut starting back entering 2014. Latavius Murray, Kory Sheets, and Jeremy Stewart are the other backs on the Raiders’ roster. It’s also possible Oakland could add a back, what with McFadden signed through 2014.
