Hughes is making a lot of money in the NFL, but his payday is likely the most lucrative he’s ever made.
In 2012, he signed a four-year deal worth $5.6 million with the Dallas Cowboys, which is about $5,400 per game.
Hughes has made $7.8 million the last two years.
In 2014, the same contract was worth $6.4 million, but the next year it was worth more than $9.8, which makes it one of the highest-paid contracts ever.
Hughes signed with the Seattle Seahawks and then the Kansas City Chiefs in 2015.
The contract was valued at about $13.7 million, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
Hughes is a free agent after the season.
If Hughes’ deal holds up, the Raiders could get to the $30 million-per-year mark for a running back next year.
He is the fourth-highest-paid running back in the league.
With a running game that was in shambles before the 2016 season, Hughes should get plenty of carries in Oakland next season.
He would be an upgrade at running back over the likes of Todd Gurley, Todd Gurle, C.J. Prosise and Frank Gore.
