The Dolphins are spending some money at running back.

Free agent running back Chase Edmonds agreed to a two-year, $12.6 million contract with $6.1 million guaranteed, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Edmonds was a fourth-round pick of the Cardinals in 2018 and has played his entire career in Arizona. Last year he played in 12 games, with 11 starts, and had 116 carries for 592 yards, plus 43 catches for 311 yards.

The running back position has been devalued in recent years in the NFL, and teams that spend on running backs often come to regret it. But the Dolphins apparently think Edmonds is going to be the right fit in new coach Mike McDaniel’s offense, and they’re willing to spend to get him.

  1. Not a fan of this signing, as a stud in the draft could have saved some money and maybe been more of an impact.

  2. As a Dolphins fan since birth, I can safely say that the only 2 RB’s that ever made a difference for our organization (in my eyes) were Ricky Williams & Ronnie Brown. I’m 100% sure they will address the position in the draft. YES Csonka & Kiick were legends, but I’m only 34 & met Kiick before he passed away.

  3. Pretty good player and RB is a huge need. But this feels like an overpay. Hopefully he can thrive in McDaniel’s system.

  4. Thanks for the memories Chase! Edmonds OWNS the Meadowlands Miami fans, the Fordham grad balled out vs the Giants & Jets, I’m circling the NYJ on the calender @ NJ for a big game for Chase, best of luck!
