Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

1. Saquon Barkley, RB, Giants. Age: 27.
Signed with Eagles (3 years, $37.8 million)

Saquon Barkley is one of the most talented running backs in the NFL, but he has a checkered injury history.

2. Aaron Jones, RB, Packers. Age: 29.
Signed with Vikings (1 year, $7 million)

The Packers releasing Aaron Jones doesn’t make much sense, as they were so much more potent offensively with him last year.

3. Josh Jacobs, RB, Raiders. Age: 26.
Signed with Packers (4 years, $48 million)

Josh Jacobs wasn’t as great last year as he was in 2022, but he’s still a terrific three-down back who is only 26.

4. Tony Pollard, RB, Cowboys. Age: 27.
Signed with Titans (3 years, $24 million)

Tony Pollard was an electric play-maker prior to 2023. He struggled last year, but was coming off a broken leg and may not have been 100 percent.

5. Derrick Henry, RB, Titans. Age: 30.
Signed with Ravens (2 years, $20 million)

Derrick Henry is not the elite runner he once was, but he is still capable of being a powerful runner for a team.

6. Austin Ekeler, RB, Chargers. Age: 29.
Signed with Redskins (2 years, $11.4 millon)

Austin Ekeler struggled mightily last year, but likely because he suffered an injury following his brilliant season-opening performance against Miami. Ekeler could bounce back in 2024, but his age is becoming a concern.

7. Devin Singletary, RB, Texans. Age: 26.
Signed with Giants (3 years, $16.5 million)

Devin Singletary was one of the surprises of 2023. He struggled in Buffalo, but really found a home in Houston as a big upgrade over Dameon Pierce.

8. D'Andre Swift, RB, Eagles. Age: 25.
Signed with Bears (3 years, $24 million)

D’Andre Swift is an electric running back, but has some obvious durability issues.

9. Zack Moss, RB, Colts. Age: 26.
Signed with Bengals (2 years, $8 million)

Zack Moss was a surprise performer last year with some dominating performances when Jonathan Taylor was hurt.

10. Antonio Gibson, RB, Redskins. Age: 26.
Signed with Patriots (3 years, $11.75 million)

Antonio Gibson is a quality receiver out of the backfield, but provides very little as a runner.

11. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Patriots. Age: 29.

Ezekiel Elliott played well in favor of an injured Rhamondre Stevenson. He’s an effective receiver out of the backfield.

12. Cordarrelle Patterson, RB, Falcons. Age: 33.
Signed with Steelers (2 years, $6 million)

Cordarrelle Patterson saw too many touches on offense, but he’s still an electric kickoff returner.

13. D'Onta Foreman, RB, Bears. Age: 28.
Signed with Browns (1 year)

D’Onta Foreman has been a journeyman backup throughout his career, but he has run well when given the opportunity.

14. Gus Edwards, RB, Ravens. Age: 29.
Signed with Chargers (2 years)

Gus Edwards is a tough, but unspectacular runner who has gotten lots of action recently because of J.K. Dobbins’ poor durability.

15. J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ravens. Age: 25.

J.K. Dobbins is a talented runner, but he’s been injured so often over the years that it’s impossible to rely on him.

16. Joshua Kelley, RB, Chargers. Age: 26.
17. Matt Breida, RB, Giants. Age: 29.
18. Ameer Abdullah, RB, Raiders. Age: 31. — Re-signed with Raiders

22. Salvon Ahmed, RB, Dolphins. Age: 25. — Re-signed with Dolphins (1 year)
23. Rashaad Penny, RB, Eagles. Age: 28.
24. Kareem Hunt, RB, Browns. Age: 29.
25. A.J. Dillon, RB, Packers. Age: 26. — Re-signed with Packers

28. Damien Harris, RB, Bills. Age: 27.

30. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Chiefs. Age: 25.
31. Craig Reynolds, RB, Lions. Age: 28.
32. Alexander Mattison, RB, Vikings. Age: 26. — Signed with Raiders (1 year)
33. Cam Akers, RB, Rams. Age: 25.
34. Marlon Mack, RB, Cardinals. Age: 28.
35. Eno Benjamin, RB, Saints. Age: 25.
