Latest Miami RB rumors

The News
The Dolphins are going to give Sammy Morris more looks in the preseason finale in case shaky starter Travis Minor continues struggling. They are also still pursuing outside help. According to the Miami Herald, the team is not interested in trading a third-round pick to the Browns for James Jackson, and they are now looking at former Dolphin Lamar Smith, who will likely be released by the Saints after their game on Friday. Other possibilities include Verron Hayes or Dante Brown of Pittsburgh, or free agent Skip Hicks.
Our View
The Dolphins are almost certain to add a running back to their backfield before the regular season begins. Unless the Browns drop their asking price for Jackson, which is not out of the question, it may end up being Smith. Smith flourished in Miami in 2000 and 2001, when he averaged over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns. He had limited success with the Panthers in 2002 before being relegated to backup status with the Saints in 2003. Should he get the call, he will likely still split carries with Minor and Morris in what is shaping up to be a backfield-by-committee.

Yeah, what ferris said ... bad enough I got Booker (early draft, when he was still a Bear), but I wouldn't go near that backfield.

I'm avoiding Miami altogether. I already traded away Chambers for K-Rob and I'm trying to trade the Miami D.

We have got to start spreading a few Barry Sanders rumors. Too bad it isn't April! ;-)
