Most Recent Player

Moreno joined the Dolphins last offseason as a free agent acquisition, and immediately made an impact. He ran for 134 yards on 24 carries in the team's season opener against the New England Patriots, with the Dolphins appearing to have the perfect compliment for Lamar Miller. The next week, however, Moreno suffered a dislocated elbow on his first carry against the Buffalo Bills, missing the next four weeks. He came back in Week 6, only to suffer a torn ACL against the Green Bay Packers and be lost for the remainder of the season.

Best Player

The number 28 has not had a lot of great players to wear it, though it has been a solid number throughout its use. The best player to wear it was likely cornerback Don McNeal, who started at left cornerback for his first four years in the league, then became a key reserve for the team. He played in 110 games in 10 seasons.
