2011 Free Agent Rankings....Running Backs & Fullbacks

The most important factor used to compile the free agent rankings is the
player’s ability and performance on the field. Next is the age and time factor,
especially players over the age of thirty. We then look at durability and injury
issues with the older veterans. Lastly, we evaluate the intangible areas (i.e.:
attitude, work ethic, and off-field troubles) as those red flags often follow a
player to his new team. Restricted free agents rarely move. The players are
ranked in order of their value. Keep in mind that maintenance of this list is
ongoing. Minor errors or omissions are possible. For example, when a player
signs during the season, his new contract’s expiration date is sometimes unclear.
It is likely that a few players are even now negotiating new or extended contracts
with their team.The following signings are as of March 14, 2011.
F – Tagged by current team as a Franchise Player
T – Tendered by current team
S – Signed by current team
UFA – Unrestricted Free Agent
URF – Unsigned Restricted Free Agent
ERF – Exclusive Restricted Free Agent
CC – Cap Casualty/New Team
