Quality running back market for 2024

The running back market in free agency will be the most bountiful in NFL history with none of the major backs being franchise tagged.

According to ESPN there will be no tagging of running back’s Josh Jacobs, Saquon Barkley, Derrick Henry, Troy Pollard or D’Andre Swift. It comes at a time when the NFL values the position on the low end of the scale.

Likely the biggest of these decisions was the Giants not tagging Saquon Barkley. Giants head coach Brian Daboll paid dodgy QB Daniel Jones $40-million+ per year last offseason in one of the bizarrest moves even seen, and now is dumping his franchise RB.

Last seasons Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor held out looking for a big deal, and while he eventually got it, it wasn’t quite as good as he hoped for. Of course, Taylor wasn’t a free agent which limited his options.

Running backs like Saquon, Henry and Jacobs are special

The interesting thing about this market is the quality of names on it. Derrick Henry, now on the downside of his career was once the greatest running back in the league. But for two ACL injuries Saquon likely would’ve been right up there with him.

Other RB’s to hit free agency this year include Devin Singletary, AJ Dillon, Zack Moss, JK Dobbins, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire.
