Miller Ready To Emerge As Dolphins’ Top RB

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Lamar Miller thinks he’s ready to make a significant leap with the Miami Dolphins.

He carried the ball just 51 times as a rookie last season, yet is widely expected to be the Dolphins’ starting running back this season. The job became vacant when Reggie Bush left Miami, and Miller quickly seemed like an obvious fit for the role.

It would also complete a career trilogy of sorts. He was the starter in high school at Miami Killian, started in college for the Miami Hurricanes and may soon be the workhorse for Miami’s NFL team.

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is raving about Miller, saying “he has the flash, the speed that excites everyone.”
