The Miami Dolphins added future Hall of Famer, Frank Gore to the backfield last week but that doesn’t mean the team has stopped looking at running backs. Gore is going to bring a huge veteran presence to the room and the starting spot is taken by Kenyan Drake. The Dolphins would like to add a rookie back to the backfield and have expressed interest in Sony Michel and Nick Chubb, both of whom played for Georgia.
