Dolphins might have interest in Michael Turner?

That's right.  I don't really get it, but ESPN's John Clayton was just on "The Hot List" on ESPNews and said that the Dolphins could be one of the teams looking into Chargers' RB Michael Turner.  Then, speaking about the Marion Barber rumors, Clayton said that a lot of that would depend on Ronnie Brown's health and what happens with Michael Turner.

As far as Ronnie's health goes, it's being reported he's ahead of schedule, but we all remember what happened when Daunte Culpepper was rehabbing.  So I'll be cautious when talking about Ronnie's rehab.  But I just don't see why the Dolphins would look to spend some cash on Michael Turner.  It doesn't make sense.  This team already has 3 backs, one of which being Ricky Williams.  Sure, we don't know what we might get out of Ricky.  But the Dolphins could easily draft a running back in the later rounds as insurance.  After all, late round running backs and even undrafted backs seem to be wise investments these days (see Ryan Grant, Derrick Ward, and Ahmad Bradshaw, among others).

If you ask me, I think this is one time where John Clayton is way off here.
