2022 NFL Free Agency: Running backs tracker

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The new NFL league year begins in just over two weeks, a mark on the calendar that includes the start of the free agency period. While teams are still working through the franchise tag period and working on potential contract extensions for their own soon-to-be free agents, they are also building their internal plans on which free agents they want to target on the open market.

Yesterday, we took a look at (likely) the Miami Dolphins’ biggest area of need, the offensive line. We listed all the players expected to be unrestricted free agents when the league year begins unless they reach a new contract with their current team or receive the franchise tag. Today, we move to the list of soon-to-be free agent running backs.

As we did with the offensive line list, we have included only the expected unrestricted free agents or players who are already free agents due to being cut or not being on an active roster when the season ended. Restricted and exclusive rights free agents were not included in this list, simply because we have to wait to see who is tendered and who is not.

The list below includes the player, his current team, and his age.
