Dolphins signed wrong veteran RB

Larry Johnson? Really? So, a former Kansas City and Washington wash out was a better option than keeping either Ronnie Brown or Ricky Williams?

Both RBs knew the team, were veteran leaders and could have provided a ton of knowledge to newcomer Daniel Thomas. Instead Brian Daboll decides on Johnson.

Upon returning from Miami yesterday I found myself invigorated by what the Fins had put together on the field against the Panthers. Albeit, Cam Newton and Carolina are not world-beaters, but a near-perfect first half against any team will do in the preseason.

Reggie Bush looked great, Thomas looked unafraid, and Henne looked much, much better than he did against Atlanta.Now word is that Johnson is being brought in for…well, I’m not sure.

If anything, Miami could really use another QB option. But Daboll is a run-guy, so I guess this sort of makes sense, somewhere. But not in Miami.

At least they didn’t waste a pick on Terrell Pryor.

    Hey genius, maybe you should consider the fact that they didn’t intend on signing another RB. They realized after two preseason games that their current RBs (other than Bush) weren’t cutting it. So they had to get a little help. You act as if it was planned to let Brown & Williams go to sign Johnson. You really have no business writing articles.

      Thanks for your opinion Mr. Ray W…Williams and Brown could have provided ample leadership, a quality Johnson has shown to lack. Also, Lex Hilliard is averaging about 3.5 ypr, and Thomas has looked good with 57 yards and a score on 16 carries. Johnson hasn’t had a real season since 2009. But they got him on the cheap, so hopefully, he can at least give Thomas a pointer or two!

        And your brilliant insight is also very much appreciated as well Mr Chris
        but as Mr Ray pointed out, they DID not intend on signing another RB, it just happned that way AFTER Brown and Williams were gone!
