Top 5 Free Agent Runnings Backs For 2015

Sam Spiegelman ranks the top free agent running backs available this offseason and where they may be headed.

DeMarco Murray

3. Shane Vereen

One of the Super Bowl heroes, Vereen has often been heralded for his ability as a receiver out of the backfield. That was the difference as he continued to move the chains on third-down against the Seahawks earlier this month. Perhaps doing it with a national audience has other NFL teams chomping at the bit to add his skills to their offense.

While New England utilized Vereen mainly as a pass-catcher, he does have the ability to be a true running back. It’ll be interesting to see if other teams view him in the same light.

Vereen has never carried the ball 100 times in a season yet in four years, but does boast a 4.2 yard per carry average. Perhaps his next team will allow him to prove he’s no one-trick pony.
