Miami Dolphins Rumors: Free-Agent RB Becoming Primary Target

Josh Jacobs is a player to watch very closely, as he is one of the top free-agent running backs this offseason. It is likely that the Las Vegas Raiders would love to keep him around, but he also has earned the opportunity to test the market after his strong season. As a result, the Miami Dolphins are reportedly set to make a big push for the running back if he hits the free-agent market. 

The Dolphins are in a very tough AFC East division, so they are in a position where they must add to their group this offseason. The Buffalo Bills are clearly the top team in the AFC East, but both the New England Patriots and New York Jets were not far behind the Dolphins this season. Thus, improving the running back position would be big for the Dolphins, so do not be surprised to see them go all-in for Jacobs.

Jacobs had a fantastic season that saw him record 12 touchdowns, 340 rushes, and 1,653 rushing yards. Adding a high-impact running back like this to the Dolphins would make them much better, so let's see if they do just that from here.
