The Dolphins’ continued quest to find someone willing to play running back for them has led to a guy who isn’t quite ready to run.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, former Texans running back Arian Foster is visiting the Dolphins Tuesday.
Miami lost Lamar Miller in free agency, then missed on C.J. Anderson when the Broncos matched their offer sheet, and then Chris Johnson used them as leverage for a deal back with the Cardinals.
Now, they’re turning their attention to a back who, when well, is one of the best in the league. Foster is the kind of versatile back offenses can be built around when he’s on the field.
But at the moment, he’s rehabbing the Achilles he tore last year, and his brother/trainer says his desire to play again is evident.
Foster will turn 30 before the start of the season, and he might give them a solid player to go with Jay Ajayi, and keep them from having to trade for one.
