Mack is one of many running backs still available in free agency. Some other notable names still looking for a home include Ezekiel Elliot, Dalvin Cook, Kareem Hunt, Mark Ingram, and Leonard Fournette.

Unfortunately for many of them, this offseason has not been particularly kind to running backs. This is currently on full display with the Jonathan Taylor/Colts drama.

As for the Cardinals, they already have their starter in James Conner. However, after Eno Benjamin did not exactly pan out as expected, Arizona has not found a consistent #2 man.

Currently, it is Keaontay Ingram, but Ingram averaged just 2.3 YPA in 2022 and did not have a single game where he was in for over 40% of the offensive snaps.

Meanwhile, while Marlon Mack did not see much playing time last season, the 27-year-old had a couple of impressive seasons with the Colts. In 2018 and 2019, Mack averaged over 75 yards per game and scored 18 touchdowns between the two years.

Stay tuned for further updates.
