The Oakland Raiders re-signed running back Darren McFadden on Saturday.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but the deal is for one year according to the San Jose Mercury News.

McFadden has spent all six of his NFL seasons with the Raiders after being selected in the first round of the 2008 draft. The 26-year-old appeared in 10 games (seven starts) last season and rushed for 379 yards and five touchdowns on 114 carries. He also caught 17 passes for 108 yards.

"I am really excited to be back in Silver and Black," McFadden said. "There is no place I'd rather be. I want to prove to the team that drafted me that I am a top running back in this league, and I really want to help this team win. I'm happy to be back in Oakland."

The Arkansas product's best season came in 2010, when he rushed for 1,157 yards and seven touchdowns while amassing 507 yards and three more scores as a receiver.
