During the offseason, the Miami Dolphins were linked to just about every elite running back that was available via free agency or trade. The latest one is Jonathan Taylor, who has been given permission to seek a trade from the Indianapolis Colts. It was reported yesterday that the Dolphins did have talks with the Las Vegas Raiders about Josh Jacobs. While they explored the option of a trade, the talks didn’t get too far because the Raiders weren’t interested in moving their top rusher. But it’s pretty apparent the Dolphins want to add a star at running back. But just at the right price.

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