    Six NFL players ran for more yards individually than the Dolphins did as a team during the 2019 season, which makes the ground game one obvious area for the team to address this offseason.

    That effort is not waiting until free agency opens in March. Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Dolphins have worked out former Ravens running back Alex Collins.

    Collins led the Ravens with 973 rushing yards during the 2017 season and started the first 10 games of the next season before landing on injured reserve. He was arrested on marijuana possession charges last March after a car crash and was dropped by Baltimore hours later.

    Collins didn’t play last season, but worked out for the Seahawks, Packers and Bills late in the regular season. While unsigned, Collins served a three-game suspension related to his arrest.

    Hopefully we're starting at the bottom and working our way up...

    Collins was doing well in Seattle, he was expected to make the team but then they had injuries on the OL after cuts and had to cut him to bring in OL. If he's done what Marshawn says and taken care of his mentals, bring him to training camp.

    And WTF is it with RBs and weed anyway? I smoke like Bob Marley (well, like a fat old white Marley anyway) But for NFL money, no problem quitting. None. I quit for 2 years for a $25 hr job. Just drank more.

    NFL is going to stop testing for it come the new CBA I hope and pray.

    I imagine that we are starting a rookie in 2020. Possibly even an entirely new stable of backs altogether.

    Basent on the amount of draft picks we have, I bet we draft multiple RBs. I do not see the need for a pricey vet. Rookie production is usually pretty good for their age.

    Fun fact - I think that if our young backs look bad in camp, I would dial up the immortal one - Frank Gore.
