The Miami Dolphins are likely going to need to sign, draft, or trade for at least one running back this offseason. Ricky Williams is all but gone, and Ronnie Brown could also be gone.
Because of that Miami will need a new running back. There have been a lot of names thrown around for the job, and let me add another name to the list courtesy of Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post:
Sproles is a small, quick back that could be able to split carries with another running back. He is also a great receiving back who has had more receiving yards than rushing yards in the past three seasons. He averaged 5.3 yards per carry when running the ball last year and 8.8 yards per reception.
Sproles could add a lot to the Dolphins. He is a great threat running the ball, and he adds another dimension as a receiving threat. The Dolphins could keep him and Ronnie Brown, and their two running styles would complement each other very well.
Sproles is very young at only 27 years old, so he has a lot of years left in him.
He is also a great kick returner, which is something Miami lacked last year. So, his value would be amplified even more if the Dolphins got him.
I want to know what you guys think. Would you like the Miami Dolphins to go after Sproles? Let me know with your comments.
Thanks for reading.
