The Miami Dolphins are bringing a South Florida product back home and adding another tailback to a crowded running back room
The Dolphins are signing former New England Patriots running back Sony Michel, a former Broward County high school football standout at American Heritage, according to multiple reports by NFL Network and ESPN.
Michel has collected 3,137 rushing yards in four NFL seasons after he was drafted as a late-first-round pick out of Georgia in 2018. His first three were with the Patriots, the Dolphins’ AFC East rival, and he spent last season with the Los Angeles Rams. He was won two Super Bowls between his two prior stops.
At 5-foot-11 and 215 pounds, Michel can present Miami with a between-the-tackles runner in a crowded backfield that mostly has quick, elusive running backs. The Dolphins added Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert in free agency and have Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed returning from last year’s roster.
