2012 NFL Free Agents: Running Backs

Despite being a free agent this offseason, don't expect to see Ray Rice in anything except a Baltimore Ravens uniform in 2012.

The 2012 NFL Free Agency period begins in 24 days. Today we continue our look at players expected to become free agents on March 13. This list, as with the free agent quarterbacks list before it, does not project players that could get the franchise tag (Ray Rice), nor does it anticipate players who could be released by the team. This is simply a list of players with expiring contracts.

Today's list takes a look at the free agent running backs
