If you’re looking for an argument against signing veteran running backs in free agency, look no further than Toby Gerhart.
The Jaguars cut Gerhart today, bringing to an end a disappointing tenure in Jacksonville that began when they signed him to a three-year, $10.5 million contract two years ago.
As it turned out, Gerhart made $7 million for his two years in Jacksonville, and in that time he totaled 370 rushing yards and averaged 3.06 yards a carry.
Now the Jaguars have signed running back Chris Ivory, so Gerhart is expendable. The Jaguars have to hope Ivory proves to be a better signing than Gerhart. He could hardly be worse.
