NFL Rumors: Miami Dolphins could pursue signing Maurice Jones-Drew


The Miami Dolphins are looking for a complete culture change thanks to the horrific bullying scandal that rocked their locker room, but they just generally need to improve their roster as well. Bullying scandal or not, this offseason was going to be spent improving what should be a much better roster and one player that could help the team is Maurice Jones-Drew.

According to ESPN.com scribe James Walker, the Dolphins could take a look at Maurice Jones-Drew in free agency.

Running back should be a priority for Miami, but not at the top of the list. So don’t expect a big-ticket item like Ben Tate from the Houston Texans to join the Dolphins. But the Dolphins could go the cheaper route and get a second-tier running back. I tend to think Maurice Jones-Drew could still have something in the tank if he stays healthy. Otherwise, the draft has a few quality options, as well.

This would be an intriguing option, especially if the Dolphins pair him with a back from the draft. Miami won’t be jumping out and buying high on a running back early in free agency, but it’s clear that they’ll at least be kicking tires.

    come on Josh! LOL. You are better than this and you know it. Again, NOT A RUMOR but someones opinion. Take the time to write why it would make sense from YOUR opinion instead of passing it off as a rumor. This isn’t BR man and I know for a fact you do better reporting this. I’ve seen it. The rest of the title would have been fine if you dropped the “NFL Rumor” part of it. :)
