Lynn Bowden will play running back for the Las Vegas Raiders, but he could take some snaps at quarterback, similar to what he did at Kentucky last season.
Las Vegas Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson hinted at Bowden possibly playing some quarterback for the Raiders this season.
“Right now, we have him working out of the running backs room,” Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson told reporters Tuesday. “He’s meeting with Kirby Wilson, the running backs coach, but also he’s had to learn a lot of things that we do at the quarterback position.”
The Raiders love the versatility of Bowden, who won the Paul Hornung Award last season, which goes to the most versatile player in all of college football.
“We believe that he can transition and be a running back, as well as do some of those plays at the quarterback position that he did in college.”
Don't be surprised to see @LynnBowden_1 under center at times this season. 🃏
