Those tears that Knowshon Moreno shed before games may be making an offseason appearance, as the former Denver Broncos running back is about to cry some tears of joy. According to CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora, the Miami Dolphins are moving closer to a deal with Moreno that would make him their main back in 2014.
RB market coming into some focus. Moreno moving closer to deal w/Miami. Blount to visit PIT Thurs/Fri: NE interested in him as well …

Nothing is imminent and we’ve seen players seemingly agree to deals with a team, have them get reported and then ultimately back away from the deal. Emmanuel Sanders and Jared Allen did that earlier but Dolphins fans are hoping they don’t join that particular list.
Moreno had a breakout year in 2013 in Peyton Manning’s stellar offense and he’s now looking to cash in on a market that is painfully shallow. While there are names out there like Moreno, LeGarrette Blount and Maurice Jones-Drew, no one is jumping through hoops to sign them.
Hopefully for Moreno he can work something out with Miami and hopefully for Dolphins fans, Moreno works out.
