OMAR KELLY: FINS TO PART WITH LAMAR MILLER
Jordan Cameron Reworks Contract to Give Cap Relief
Sun Sentinel beat writer Omar Kelly is reporting that the Miami Dolphins will not resign Lamar Miller and instead let the star running back explore free agency. Miller, who at 24 is in his prime and considered to be a premiere back is said to be looking for top dollar (in excess of $5M) and a featured role. Two teams have emerged as the front runners both from Texas, The Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Texans are in the hunt with most feeling Dallas will be the spot. However, with the trade of Demarco Murray from the Eagles to the Titans, Philadelphia could be in the mix too. What is apparent is that Lamar Miller won't be a MIami Dolphin in 2016.
This leaves the Miami Dolphins with Jay Ajayi as the heir apparent at the running back position. The second year back out of Boise State has flashed signs of great talent but has ongoing concerns about a suspect knee. With free agency and the draft ahead you have to figure Miami has a plan. One can only imagine what it is when you let four of your top players leave the roster.
