Myles Gaskin met with the media on Monday and was asked about all the rumors about the running back situation. Many believed that the Dolphins would select one of the draft’s top running backs but the team didn’t draft one until the seventh round. This is great news for Gaskin as he likely enters the offseason as RB1. But the third year pro wasn’t worried about adding a top tier running back because as he put it, ‘above my pay grade’ and would have supported whoever the team decided to add to the running back room.
