There will be a million rumors coming out now that the draft is just six days away, and the latest one comes from the National Football Post and Mike Lombardi, who reports that the Fins would be willing to part ways with leading RB Ronnie Brown.
Here is the report from the site:
For the right price, I hear (and I emphasize hear) the Dolphins might be interested in discussing a trade involving starting running back Ronnie Brown if a team calls and expresses an interest. On the surface, that may come as a surprise to some, but when you look over the tape and Brown’s production, even though he almost had a 1,000-yard season, he only had three games over 100 yards.
His longest run (62 yards) came from the wildcat formation against the Patriots, and his next long run was 30 yards. In nine of his 16 games he had fewer than 50 yards rushing, hardly a classic full-time back.
Now where the Fins would get Brown’s production from is a great question. Last season he was a difference maker for the Dolphins, and was the man when it came to the “Wildcat” offense. It would take an awful lot for the Fins to move Brown, and even more interesting to see if a team is willing to give it.
