e bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.
2014 was James' first year with the Dolphins.
He was signed at the end of September after being cut by the San Francisco 49ers.
He appeared in 1 game for the 49ers and recorded 2 carries for no yards.
In Miami he appeared in 2 games recording 3 carries for 9 yards.
Why he might progress:
Will be more familiar with the offensive system in his second year here in Miami.
Can play special teams too and could see some time there.
Has impressed in the offseason programs.
Why he might regress:
Won't see as much playing time, if he makes the roster.
James would likely come in on passing downs and provide another option to throw to.
Chances he makes the 53-man roster:
Right now I have Lamar Miller, Jay Ajayi, and Damien Williams making the roster. I am not entirely sure on how many running backs they plan to carry. Regardless, I think James makes the roster.
