Matching NFL Top Free-Agent Running Backs to Best Team Fits
It’s mid-February, and the NFL’s version of the hot stove league is starting to warm up a bit.
Over the last week or so, we have seen players get cut due to salary-cap reasons as clubs look to open up room to re-sign their own or get ready to make a major acquisition.
Here, we take a look at the top 10 running backs who will be available (or, in the case of one player, available immediately). If you’re looking for a complete list of players at the position (one that could change daily), Spotrac has the skinny.
Keep in mind that most of these running backs aren’t available until March 9 at the earliest and in the case of some may never see free agency at all. We will decide which player fits best with which team based on needs and (of course) finances. We’ll also point out those who we figure won’t leave their current clubs anytime soon.
The following 10 players are listed in alphabetical order and not in order of preference. We’re here to make your NFL shopping experience is as straight forward as possible.
