It’s pretty clear that Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams aren’t both going to be back with the Dolphins. In fact, it’s starting to look like both players will be moving on.
Dolphins coach Tony Sparano sidestepped any questions about his running backs on Tuesday, but would only not rule out the possibility of one of them returning.
“It doesn’t really sound like Sparano’s excited about re-signing either veteran,” Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
With that out the way, Sparano was very definitive about what we did want in his backfield. He wants to bring in two players that “complement” each other well. And the Dolphins are going to remain a ground-and-pound team.
“We’re going to continue to run the football because that’s my nature. It might not be popular with everybody, but that’s what I like to do,” Sparano said. “There are some teams in this league that got very far being able to do it.”
Sparano mentioned Jahvid Best as the type of speedy, pass-catching back the team wanted to add. Brown and Williams certainly don’t fit that mold.
