Todd Gurley and every other free agent running back as of November 2021

Did your NFL team just lose a running back?

NFL: DEC 29 Cardinals at Rams

The following running backs are listed as free agents on Spotrac (originally as of 7/20, updates as of 9/9, updated again on 11/1 following Titans signing Adrian Peterson to replace an injury Derrick Henry):

  • Todd Gurley, 27
  • Duke Johnson, 28 (Dolphins)
  • T.J. Yeldon, 28
  • Dion Lewis, 31 (retired)
  • Chris Thompson, 31
  • LeSean McCoy, 33 (said he retired)
  • Adrian Peterson, 36
  • Frank Gore, 38
  • Alfred Morris, 33
  • Tyler Ervin, 28
  • DeAndre Washington, 28
  • Le’Veon Bell, 29 (Ravens PS)
  • Senorise Perry, 30
  • Kenyon Barner, 32
  • D’Onta Foreman, 25 (Falcons)
  • Ito Smith, 26
  • Latavius Murray, 31 (Ravens)
  • Kerryon Johnson, 24
  • Peyton Barber, 27 (Raiders)
  • Devonta Freeman, 29 (on Ravens PS)
  • Corey Clement, (Cowboys)
  • Lamar Miller, 30 (Saints)
  • Brian Hill, 25

9/9 update: On Thursday, September 9th, the Ravens found out that Gus Edwards likely suffered a torn ACL and will miss the year. The news comes after both J.K. Dobbins and Justice Hill suffered season-ending injuries too. Baltimore will turn to practice squad VETERANS Le’Veon Bell and DeVonta Freeman.

9/11 update: The Titans are placing Derrick Henry on injured reserve with a broken foot and have signed Adrian Peterson to replace him on the 53-man roster. The list of FA running back only gets shorter and Todd Gurley remains on it. This could make any RB on the trade market that much more valuable.

Which of these players would interest you the most? Anyone who we should be taking a closer look at for potential Cam Akers replacements?

Obviously there has already been a ton of chatter about Todd Gurley, but he has played poorly for at least the last two seasons and no team has bitten the bullet on giving him a contract. Adrian Peterson is a future first ball Hall of Famer, but can he still play?

Earlier on Tuesday, we wrote about Akers injury, as well as 16 potential trade targets, and why the Rams shouldn’t worry about their Super Bowl odds following the bad news on his Achilles. Curious who is already on the roster after Darrell Henderson? Look here!
