Going into last season the running back position was a big question mark after Reggie Bush’s’ departure, well it appears Dennis Hickey and Joe Philbin aren’t willing to take that risk again this season deciding to add a proven veteran running back to the roster.
Knowshon Moreno who contributed 1,586 yards and 13 touchdowns last season is the only 1,000 yard back on the team and adds an immediate boost to the teams running attack. Moreno is an all-purpose back, who can block and contribute in the passing game, an asset the Dolphins offense has sorely been lacking.
While there are still questions about Morneo given his prior injuries and lack of success without Peyton Manning it is hard to debate the Dolphins are not a better team in 2014 with him on the roster.
The Dolphins will go into the season with Knowshon most likely as the team’s starter and would be expected to use him with Lamar Miller in a two headed backfield.
The addition of Moreno could mean the end of Daniel Thomas’ career in Miami who has probably been public enemy number two in Miami after Jeff Ireland.
The founder of Cover32 a Bronco fan had this to say about Knowshon.
@cover32_MIA – Great attitude. Smart player. Tough guy. I’m a big fan of Knowshon!

Knowshon Moreno really grew up last year. Watching DEN film today. Great blocking, great in receiving game, and rushed for 1,000 yards.

Knowshon was the 15th ranked RB last season by PFF (+9.9 grade), which was 20 spots higher than current Dolphins starter Lamar Miller.
