Free agent running back Arian Foster visited the Dolphins in March, but he didn’t sign then and isn’t likely to sign any time soon.
The Dolphins aren’t pursuing Foster and will consider him only if their young running backs get hurt or don’t play well in training camp, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Those young running backs include second-year player Jay Ajayi and rookie third-round pick Kenyan Drake, both of whom have drawn praise from the coaches during offseason work.
Even if the Dolphins do decide to sign a veteran running back, it’s not clear that Foster would be their first choice. They also worked out running back Dan Herron on Monday.
Foster suffered a torn Achilles on October 25. From his own account, he’s a couple weeks away from being ready to go. Once he’s fully healthy he’ll look for a new team, but that team doesn’t appear to be the Dolphins.
