The Miami Dolphins have whittled down their running back room, and they've cut a former first-round back in the process.
Despite winning the second Super Bowl of his career and rushing for 845 yards with the Rams last season, Michel could never really get going in Miami. His preseason rushing line of 13 yards on nine carries (one touchdown) certainly didn't help his cause, but Michel was also routinely limited in practice for health reasons and was reportedly uneven in his performance when he was out there.
The Dolphins owe Michel the guaranteed portion ($850,000) of the one-year, $2.1 million deal he signed with the team. Michel has run for 3,137 yards and 18 TDs in his four NFL seasons and was instrumental in New England's run to a victory in Super Bowl LIII, but injuries have somewhat derailed his career ever since.
