The Dolphins today released Jordan Howard.
The front office has made a number of excellent choices the last 2 years, and I hope they know what they’re doing here. Personally, I would hesitate to cut Howard. He is the team leader in touchdowns, and the Phins are short on RB depth at the moment. A couple of undrafted kids like Salvon Ahmed and Myles Gaskin have Patrick Laird arenb’t going to scare opposing teams. They’ve played well, but I don’t know how they’ll hold up.
As many of you know, I’m not a fan of drafting RBs and WRs high in the draft. An RB is only as good as his line. And WRs are only as good as the QB. But even then… (Randall Thrill Hill and Yatil Green had the greatest QB of all time throwing to them, and they still sucked). That being said, there are some promising prospects coming available in the 2021 draft, and by cutting Howard, that tells me the Phins have their eye on an RB.
