Six NFL players ran for more yards individually than the Dolphins did as a team during the 2019 season, which makes the ground game one obvious area for the team to address this offseason.

That effort is not waiting until free agency opens in March. Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Dolphins have worked out former Ravens running back Alex Collins.

Collins led the Ravens with 973 rushing yards during the 2017 season and started the first 10 games of the next season before landing on injured reserve. He was arrested on marijuana possession charges last March after a car crash and was dropped by Baltimore hours later.

Collins didn’t play last season, but worked out for the Seahawks, Packers and Bills late in the regular season. While unsigned, Collins served a three-game suspension related to his arrest.

  1. 2 Phins’ Articles ago you just underscored the root of the problems with the Dolphins’ run game. IT’S NOT THE BACKS! IT’S THE LIIIIIINE!!!

  2. Use one of their draft picks on a top RB rather than workout a has been retread! The Dolphin front office obviously has no clue!

  3. Flores is doing his due diligence. I commend him for looking under every stone. You never know what or who you may find. He must have seen something. None of us are perfect, we all have life lessons to be learned. Failure is one of our greatest teachers. Prayerfully, he’s gotten his life together and is motivated to get his career back on track.
