The Dolphins core tailback tandem of second year man Jay Ajayi and rookie Kenyan Drake became a viable NFL threesome today with the addition of a proven do-it-all veteran in Arian Foster.
Foster has accrued 6,472 rushing yards with a 4.5 career average and 54 touchdowns in seven seasons while in three of those years he participated in eight or fewer games. As a receiver out of the backfield he's covered 2,268 yards with 14 touchdowns.
Arian a 2009 Houston Texan un-drafted rookie with 6 games played became superstar material in 2010, 11, 12, and 2014. Foster played in just eight 2013, and four 2015 games due to injury. His most recent injury (achilles) came in week seven of 2015 versus the Miami franchise at which he now resides.
Miami signed 6-1, 227 Arian Foster (30 in August) to a one year deal at 1.5 million with another 2 million worth of incentives on the table. At his best he's a proven threat in every phase of the game and will easily earn such incentives. At the very least he offers proven veteran leadership! Along with the leadership aspect. Foster (once 100% healthy while working out for the Dolphins on numerous occasions during the process) has the superior skill-sets and all-around game which didn't exist in the (break glass in case of emergency) scenario of Damian Williams, Daniel Thomas, or Isaiah Pead.
Training Camp begins in TEN DAYS on July 28th.
The Miami Dolphins will play 2016's first pre-season game at the N.Y. Giants 15 days later on August 12th.
