My goodness. At long last. Could the Isaiah Ford saga finally be over for the Miami Dolphins?
Ford was selected by Miami in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, and has made a much larger impact on the transaction sheet than he has ever made on the field. Since training camp of his rookie season, he has been waived five times, traded once, re-signed three times, and has made nearly ten trips to and from the practice squad.
While he has not cost the Dolphins a lot of money in that span, spending that much time on a player who produces as little as Ford does on Sundays is almost impressive. After sitting out his rookie year, Ford has amassed 617 yards receiving and has scored one touchdown in four seasons. In 2020, he finished with just 276 yards despite playing in 10 games and averaging 55 percent of offensive snaps. He has played in a grand total of 25 games, starting just once when Miami was out of other options.
Ford’s one-year deal expires after the season, and we can hope that the Dolphins’ relationship with him will as well.
