The Miami Dolphins were rumored as a team interested in signing Maurice Jones-Drew earlier on Monday but it turns out those reports may have been a bit premature. Despite the need for a running back and the fact that MJD already plays in state, it appears that the Dolphins interest in Jones-Drew simply isn’t there.
According to the Miami Herald, there may indeed be interest in signing Maurice Jones-Drew but if there is it hasn’t been made abundantly clear.
Dolphins have not talked to Maurice Jones-Drew about a visit or his desire to play in Miami, much less a contract. So if that’s interest …

The Jets, Steelers and Patriots were also mentioned in the same report as teams interested in Jones-Drew but they may also be on the same level as the Dolphins in terms of interest. There’s a chance that Jones-Drew ends up in Miami but he’s not to the point in his career that he needs to take just any old job that comes along and going to the Dolphins might be a low on his list of options.
