The Dolphins made it a point to upgrade their running back room this offseason with the additions of Jordan Howard and Matt Breida. The team traded for Breida during the draft, where many thought the team would just draft a rookie to pair with Howard. We can look at a former Dolphin as a comparison to what Breida brings to Miami. The Dolphins had a play making back with break away speed with Kenyan Drake, but things fell through with him and the coaching staff.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
