How Much Does a Running Back Make Per Year? Average Running Back Salary

Running backs are a very important part of every football team, and their salaries reflect that. The average annual earning of a running back is estimated to be around $900,000. Famed footballer Ladianian Tomlinson is reported to be making about $7,000,000 per year as the top-paid running back to date. A running back takes the ball from the quarterback in a game. It is regarded a prominent position in that a running back takes the ball up the field on offense. He can also pay the role of a receiver on passing routes or stay back to block defenders. However, running backs tend to have one of the shortest careers in the National Football League, and that puts a premium on their salaries.
