The McDaniel offense should offer a vital role for Alec Ingold.

*Insert the Kyle Juszczyk and Mike McDaniel comment here*

Who says the fullback position is a throwback position? The Dolphins, whose new head coach is a former run game coordinator, are focused on getting their run game going. When an offense has an offensive line that could possibly be shaky at points, and a starting tight end that might whiff on a few blocks, then a fullback can be vital.

The fullback position might be one that the new spread offense sees no value in, but a lead blocker who can catch and even run when asked is vital. That’s where Alec Ingold comes in.

During his time with the Las Vegas Raiders, Alec Ingold was one of the better fullbacks in the NFL. Yes, you could probably count how many traditional fullbacks there are in the NFL on both hands, but that doesn’t take away the fact that he was vital to a fairly potent Raiders rushing game.

If McDaniel making it a point to get Ingold, who is coming off a torn ACL, early in free agency isn’t telling of his potential impact then I think you just hate old-school football and fullbacks. I, on the other hand, love fullbacks as does McDaniel.
