The Dolphins have the greatest home-field disadvantage in NFL history this season, and running back Ronnie Brown has been a big part of that: Brown has just 205 rushing yards in seven home games, compared to 478 yards in seven road games.
But as bad as Brown has been at Sun Life Stadium this year, he says he wants to keep playing there.
Brown told Jeff Darlington of the Miami Herald that as he heads toward free agency in 2011, he’s still hoping to stick around in Miami.
“I haven’t given up hope,” Brown said. “I know there’s a chance I won’t be back here. You know, that’s something I think about. It’s tough because I’ve grown so attached to this community and this area.”
It will be interesting to see how hard the Dolphins try to keep Brown. He has managed to stay healthy all season, which is a plus, but he’s 29 years old and averaging a career-low 3.8 yards a carry. If Brown is going to stay in Miami, he might need to take a pay cut.
