The Miami Dolphins are interested in a running back and specifically a veteran running back. A few weeks after working out free agent RB Tiki Barber, the Dolphins reportedly worked out RB Clinton Portis, who was released by the Redskins after a seven-year career in Washington.
Portis is turning 30 years old in a few weeks which is worrisome for any running back. That's usually about the team running backs start to break down, especially those with as much wear and tear as Portis.
If I'm an NFL team, I'd consider Portis in a complementary role where he doesn't have to carry the ball 15-plus times a game. He's simply too unreliable at this point in his career to be a feature back after playing in just 13 games in the last two seasons.
The Dolphins have picked up RB Reggie Bush as well this offseason so they have a little bit of talent in the backfield. It'll be interesting to see whether they picked up Portis (or if this story was leaked solely to remind the rest of the NFL that Portis is still a free agent).
