What Will The Miami Dolphins Running Back Position Look Like Next Year?

For those of you who don't know, there is a strong possibility that both Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams won't return to the Miami Dolphins next season.

Ricky had a "rant" of sorts complaining about Tony Sparano and his coaching style, and he said that he thought it was time to move on from the Dolphins organization. It would be a shock to me if he does end up playing for Miami again, and we might as well consider him gone.

Ronnie didn't have a rant, but all signs are pointing to him not playing with the Miami Dolphins next season. He never directly said that he wanted to leave Miami, but he does seem to be considering playing for other teams, too.

There are a few other running backs that could be available if they don't return to their teams. Two players that I would love Miami to get are Deangelo Williams and Cedric Benson. Williams is already all but gone from Carolina. Benson still has a chance of returning to Cincinnati, but it there is still a good chance he will be leaving.

Miami could also look in the draft and get a player like Mark Ingram in the first round, but I would prefer them not to because they should use their early draft pick to find a quarterback.

They could try and search for gold late in the draft and find a runner with huge potential, but I am not too confident in Miami's ability to find a player like that late in the draft. After all, we aren't the Patriots. We don't have an immaculate ability to find the perfect players late in the draft like Bill Belichick and his staff, so it might be better to just go after a proven player.

Like always, we will see what happens. Thanks for reading, and let me know who you want Miami to get next year.
