Miami Dolphins retooling of the running back unit puts Kalen Ballage on notice.
Kalen Ballage, RB
Incase I ruffled any feather with my Raekwon McMillan prediction, let’s look at a player every Dolphins Phan can agree.
Ballage made history last year with the worst yards-per-carry average by a Miami Dolphins running back, ever. With 131 yards on 73 carries, he averaged 1.8 yards a carry. His 58.2 PFF grade does not signal much to cheer about either.
To go along with his poor 2019 performance, Ballage also showed weak character after stating, “I don’t have nothing to prove,” Kalen Ballage, from Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post.
Also, Miami brought in two new running backs during the 2020 NFL off-season. Matt Breida and Jordan Howard.
Looking at Over the Cap, cutting Ballage would save $750,000 with only $147,295 in dead money.
When Miami Dolphins drafted him in the 4th round (131 2018 NFL Draft), they hoped the found a bruiser at 6’2″ 237 LBS that had speed. But instead, they might have to cut their losses and allow the new additions of Matt Breida and Jordan Howard to be an example for young backs like Myles Gaskin, and Malcolm Perry (If you want to call him that).
