The NFL running back market is a tricky one because there’s not a ton of value at the position anymore, and even the biggest stars have short careers compared to just about any other position on the field. Still, teams continue to look to upgrade their roster at every position, and running back is no different.

Some of the top notable free agency signings through March 20th include Cordarrelle Patterson sticking with the Atlanta Falcons and James Conner re-signing with the Arizona Cardinals. The Miami Dolphins landed Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert this offseason.

Below is a look at some of the best running backs available for teams to sign as they look to upgrade their running back room for 2022.
