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.

4. C.J. Spiller

Like Vereen, Spiller is more of a pass-catching threat out of the backfield. He’s most dangerous when he’s in space. In 2012 he put forth a career year, rushing for more than 1,200 yards and adding more than 450 yards as a receiver.

That 2012 season was under the tutelage of former Bills coach Chan Gailey, now the Jets’ offensive coordinator. Gang Green will likely be in the market for a change-of-pace back, assuming they part ways with Johnson.

Spiller has had back-to-back down years in 2013 and 2014 under Doug Marrone, so his value may be low entering free agency. Still, at 27 with that range of skills, he’ll generate a market.
