Sticking with the Miami Dolphins 2012 draft, Lamar Miller is another player that may have seen his final runs in the NFL.
Miller was once a dominant running back for the Dolphins. A mid-round gem that worked out great for the team. When it was time to re-sign him after his rookie contract, the Dolphins opted to continue their new trend of replacing runners with mid-round draft picks.
Miller left the Dolphins in free agency and joined the Houston Texans. His first season with Houston saw him post over 1,000 yards rushing, the 2nd in his NFL career. He posted over 800 and 900 yards in his final two seasons with the Texans.
In 2020, Miller played for the Chicago Bears and saw only one game posting two receptions and no rushing yards. He hasn’t played since.
Miller could get a call from an NFL team this year but if we are being honest, there are far better options at this point on the open market with younger players who could easily handle a larger load with more success than Miller can at this point.
For 8 seasons Miller had a decent career and better than many others given his draft location but we may have seen the last of him.
