These 16 running backs are free agents; could any of them replace Cam Akers?
By Kenneth Arthur@KennethArthuRS Jul 20, 2021, 2:02pm CDT

NFL: DEC 29 Cardinals at Rams
The following running backs are listed as free agents on Spotrac:

Todd Gurley, 27
Duke Johnson, 28
T.J. Yeldon, 28
Dion Lewis, 31
Chris Thompson, 31
LeSean McCoy, 33
Adrian Peterson, 36
Frank Gore, 38
Alfred Morris, 33
Tyler Ervin, 28
DeAndre Washington, 28
Le’Veon Bell, 29
Senorise Perry, 30
Kenyon Barner, 32
D’Onta Foreman, 25
Ito Smith, 26
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!

  I don't think it gets better than Peterson.

alyoshamucci34July 21, 2021 06:07PM

  In this case, his past makes a difference for me... (nm)

JamesJM15July 21, 2021 06:35PM

  IMO what we need is not so much Peterson to rip off...

  Ito Smith has a Raheem Morris connection

Rams Junkie21July 22, 2021 01:31PM

  Would rather see what Rams have on roster right now
