  1. Hey Texan Fans- you got a good one in Buddy Howell. He was fantastic for Miami in Pre-Season. He did play a few series with the 2’s, but most of his time was with 3’s and was excellent on Special Teams. The Dolphins are stacked at RB and he was 100% going to the Practice Squad. He was a monster at FAU, but needs to develop for NFL. 6’2″ 224lbs at 4.55 speed is a good start. He averaged nearly 6 yds per carry. I was hoping to keep him as Frank Gore is only a 1 year deal. Solid Poach. Good Luck to him!
