Potential landing spots for Eagles RB Miles Sanders during free agency
The Eagles running back could fly south to Miami and join the Dolphins.
One of the top contending teams of the 2023 season that could be in the market for a running back during the offseason is the Miami Dolphins. They’ll lose three of their top backs in March: Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr., and Myles Gaskin.
Despite earning a postseason berth this past season and coming very close to knocking the Buffalo Bills out of the tournament, there may be a need for a slight reset and some changes at a few of the important positions. They ranked 25th in the league last season in rushing and only averaged 99.2 yards per game on the ground.
Sanders would definitely provide a shot in the arm for their running game. If he can stay healthy, combines with that passing game that the Dolphins have, he could see another 1,000-yard season. Plus, the added ability to run the ball could help this team go on a very deep playoff run.
A ball-control offense would be very beneficial for a team trying to upstage AFC powers like the Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, and Cincinnati Bengals. Don’t forget about the fact that the AFC is also home to some up-and-comers like Trevor Lawrence and Justin Herbert.
