Top-5 running back options for the Miami Dolphins
By Pablo Rosero
Carson’s power running could be vital for the Dolphins plans
The former Seattle Seahawks running back, and a current free agent, is more than likely to return to Seattle and continue playing alongside Russell Wilson. However, since he is still technically a free agent and you never know how these thing play out, lets take a shot at seeing his fit.
As previously stated, the Dolphins are in need of an early-down back that can gain five or more yards a carry on first and second down and make life easier for a young quarterback. Carson is a typical power rusher.
In his 4-year career with the Seahawks, Carson has averaged 4.2 yards per carry and he averaged 4.6 yards a carry in an injury stricken season. With the team having Rashaad Penny and seeing strides from DJ Dallas, it is possible the team could let Carson walk.
Compared to other top backs, it is possible Carson won’t command a large salary somewhere around $6-to-8 million dollars per year would be a solid average for a back of Carson’s caliber.
Carson has the ability to be a yearly 1,000 yard rusher and arguably be considered a top-10 back in a great year.
While Carson would make sense, it still would be hard to imagine him leaving the Seahawks, but would be an amazing option for the Dolphins.
