The guy who went in to last season as the starting running back for the Dolphins will likely be returning in 2022, but in a far different capacity.
The running game was undoubtedly one of the focal points of the off season, and Miami did plenty to address their needs in that department. They have signed two halfbacks, two full backs, and acquired a solid guard to help spring inside running lanes, and they may not be done tweaking the rushing roster. The room is certainly filling up, and there are only so many carries and touches to go around. As it stands today, it looks as though Myles Gaskin will be the 3rd on the depth chart, but that is subject to change with so much off season left.
Unlike the other players on our list, Gaskin’s seat is hot long before the season even starts. He will likely remain on the roster going in to training camp, but all bets are off after that. The $2.5 million that he is owed in the final season of his contract is high for a practice squad player, so if Gaskin falls out of favor in camp, look for him to be either traded or released. His dead cap hit is only $22,000, and the Dolphins would have that $2.5 million added to their 2022 salary cap number.
