Report: Star Running Backs Meet To Talk Contracts

(Undated) — NFL running backs are fed up with the current system. According to ESPN, several star ballcarriers took part in a Zoom call Saturday to discuss the depressed market for players at their position. Among the participants included Cleveland Browns back Nick Chubb, Saquon Barkley from the Giants, Tennessee’s Derrick Henry, the Niners’ Christian McCaffrey and Josh Jacobs from the Raiders. The meeting was organized by the Chargers’ Austin Ekeler, who has been outspoken about NFL running backs not being paid their true worth. The players kicked around ideas during the call, but no major plans emerged from the meeting. Barkley and Jacobs received the franchise tag from New York and Las Vegas respectively, but were unable to agree to long-term contracts before last Monday’s deadline.
