Is there any chance the Dolphins are still interested in Chris Johnson

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Dolphins, and Bills, were close to trading for former Titans’ RB Chris Johnson prior to his release Friday. This backed up an earlier claim by Jon Clayton mentioning the Dolphins were a potential suitor for Christ Johnson. Per Schefter, the teams were so close that the Titans expected a deal to be done. The news seems a bit odd, considering the...

Moreno Gives Dolphins a Complete Back

Last week, the Miami Dolphins and running back Knowshon Moreno agreed on a one-year deal. While Moreno looks to certainly be an upgrade from the tandem of Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, Moreno makes the entire offense better and should be Miami's most complete back since the days of the Wildcat with Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown.As a member of the AFC Champion Denver Broncos...

Miami Dolphins: Why signing Knowshon Moreno is a big move

The Miami Dolphins had a very disappointing collapse down the stretch of the season last year, and one of their main holes was at the running back position. Lamar Miller was unable to have the breakout year that many expected, and Daniel Thomas was once again inconsistent. Knowshon Moreno was signed this past week in hopes that he can add some stability to the ground game. So why...

How Knowshon Moreno helps the Miami Dolphins run attack

With the pickup of Knowshon Moreno for Miami on Thursday with a one year deal, Dolphins fans should be ecstatic that this deal was done so soon. Most analysts towards the end of last week didn’t expect any deals with the Dolphins and a runningback until near or after the draft. Landing this deal lessens the absolute need to dedicate a 4th or 5th round pick to get a running back...
