Starting on Wednesday the free agent market will officially open its doors and let the signing begin.
When it comes to the outstanding running back, Lamar Miller will be on the free agent block and seeking a lucrative payday in the process.
Miller led the Dolphins with 10 touchdowns and had 1,269 total yards last season. With the two sides still at the negotiation process it looks like Miami is ready to release Miller to free agency.
The Dolphins will have to look elsewhere as they have depleted their running/tailbacks. Miami has an upstart rookie from last season in Jay Ajayi, who is waiting in the mist. I firmly believe if and when giving the chance, Ajayi can and will be a starting running back in the NFL.
In saying that, the Dolphins will have to sure up this position. Some possibilities that will be on the free agent block are, Tampa Bay’s Doug Martin, Matt Forte who is a former player under Dolphins new head coach Adam Gase, Washington’s Alfred Morris. Another former player of Gase’s is C.J. Anderson from the Denver Broncos, but he is a restricted free agent and more than likely would cost the Dolphins a draft pick.
With all these talented players in the mix and negotiations still looming between Lamar Miller and the Dolphins, I fear that come Wednesday (if not sooner) one of the aforementioned will be in a Miami Dolphins jersey this coming season and we will have to watch our workhorse Lamar Miller playing in a Texan or Cowboy jersey.
Good luck Lamar, wherever you end up. It has been a pleasure watching you grow from a rookie with the Miami Dolphins to a superstar running back of the future.
