Jim Irsay is slowly making the RB market worse

The NFL running back market has been on a roller coaster the last few weeks. Owner of the Indianapolis Colts Jim Irsay has added some fuel to the fire in his latest comment, sparking some tension with his franchise running back Jonathan Taylor.

“NFL Running Back situation,” Colts owner Jim Irsay declared on Twitter. “We have negotiated a CBA, that took years of effort and hard work and compromise in good faith by both sides..to say now that a specific Player category wants another negotiation after the fact, is inappropriate. Some Agents are selling ‘bad faith’..”

It’s not even Taylor that is the peak of the problem. In fact, he is the most just out of all the running backs in this situation. Saquon Barkley, fellow running back for the New York Giants, even threatened to sit out before he signed a new deal.

I’ll try to list as many examples as I can, but I’m sure I’m missing some. It’s becoming tiring and someone needs to put an end to this cry fest. Miles Sanders is complaining about being a running back while being paid handsomely. Austin Ekeler complains every half hour about being underpaid on a contract that nobody forced him to sign.

“Yesterday, Tony Pollard, Saquon Barkley, and Josh Jacobs all failed to sign contract extensions after being hit with the franchise tag this offseason. Barkley is even threatening to sit out! Because that worked out so well for Le’Veon Bell! The same guy who admitted today that he acted like a fool when he left for the Jets. It’s the biggest regret of his life.” Via Vendetta Sports Media.

Where do you stand on the running back market? Is it good that the players are finally taking a stand against agents and owners? Let us know in the comments down below.
