The Dallas Cowboys have many running back choices coming into the 2022 season. However, they’re bringing in a veteran to offer some depth to their ranks.
According to NFL source Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys have agreed to terms with running back Ryan Nall. Nall has spent the previous three seasons with the Chicago Bears, mainly on special teams.
The Bears didn’t get much out of Nall as a running back. In three seasons, the former undrafted free agent from Oregon State recorded nine receptions for 71 yards and a score and 12 rushing yards.
When all is said and done, Nall may serve the Cowboys as a special teams player. He has played more than 60% of special teams snaps in each of his three seasons. Nall has nine tackles and a fumble recovery in his career.

The Cowboys now have seven running backs on their roster, thanks to the arrival of Ryan Nall. They have Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard, Rico Dowdle, and JaQuan Hardy at halfback as their top two possibilities. Fullbacks Sewo Olonilua and Nick Ralston have been assigned to the team.
Nall will have to stand out from the pack to gain a spot in the running backs room coming season. However, having a few more options isn’t a bad thing.
