The Splash Zone 1/21/22: Should The Dolphins Bring Back Duke Johnson?

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins offense was inconsistent last season and that mainly begins with a lackluster run game. If you can’t run the ball in the NFL, you are going to struggle moving the ball. The Dolphins had one of the worst rushing attacks in the league, but when they started to find success near the end of the season, Duke Johnson was leading the way. Johnson was signed to the Dolphins practice squad late October and eventually became the Dolphins RB1. In 5 games, he eclipsed 100 yards twice and was the only Dolphins running back to go over 100 yards. Who knows what the offense will look like next season with a new head coach, but Johnson needs to back in a Dolphins uniform and deserves a shot to compete for the starting spot.

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