Top Five Free Agent Running Backs

By February 14, 2013

Follow me on:

Emmitt Smith

Remember when Emmitt Smith signed for $8 million as a free agent with Arizona after 12 record-setting seasons as a Dallas running back?

He gained 1,193 yards with his new team - over two seasons.

Remember when Stephen Davis was signed by the Carolina Panthers as a free agent running back before the 2003 season? He gained 1,444 yards, made the Pro Bowl and finished third in MVP voting.

Then again, he limped through the next two seasons with injuries before being released.

Just shows to go you: Free agency can be boom or bust, especially with veteran running backs.

With free agency right around the corner, here are my top five free agent running backs for this year.
