Darren McFadden prefers to stay with Oakland Raiders

What can we expect from Darren McFadden in 2013?

The Oakland Raiders probably are wondering the same thing. The running back is coming off a dreadful season in which he averaged 3.3 yards per carry in an offense that didn't play to his strengths.

Now McFadden enters a contract year. He'd like to stay with the Raiders, though he acknowledges the team hasn't reached out for extension talks.

"I love being a Raider," McFadden said Tuesday, via CSN Bay Area. "As long as they want to bring me back and have me here for as long as they want to have me -- I love being a Raider, and I'm here."

The Raiders might have the opportunity to lock up McFadden with a team-friendly deal, but a wait-and-see approach probably makes more sense. Oakland has had plenty of patience in its would-be franchise star.

Now it's prove-it time.
