Reports suggest that Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden has put a stop to contract talks with the team as he enters the final year of his current deal.

Darren McFadden has halted contract talks with the Oakland Raiders, according to

The running back is heading into the final season of his rookie deal with the AFC West side, having been a first-round draft pick in 2008.

The team's head coach Dennis Allen told the league's website: "Obviously, he never felt comfortable in what we were doing last year.

"That led to some questions about him, but if you watch practice, the guy's still explosive. He's still a threat to take it all the way. And he feels more comfortable. If you don't quite trust it, there's always that doubt."

The 25-year-old has missed 13 games in the last two seasons with injury.
