DeAndre Washington joins a feeble Dolphins running back unit as the Miami Dolphins make a late trade to add depth to the unit.
The Kansas City Chiefs were stacked at running back and they added LeVeon Bell to the unit, somebody needed to go. That somebody was DeAndre Washington and he isn’t an individual from the Miami Dolphins.
Drafted in the fifth round of the 2016 draft by the Oakland Raiders, Washington signed a free operator contract with the Chiefs this past off-season however he ended up sliding to the rear of the crowded RB room.
Washington has begun five games in his career and is a suitable alternative in both the run game and the passing game. He has 1,127 yards hurrying with 7 scores in this career and has included an extra 615 yards 89 receptions and one touchdown through the air.
The Dolphins have been attempting to find the correct piece to feature in their offense. Myles Gaskin has been o.k. however, a long way from extraordinary. Jordan Howard was a wasted free agent signing and has been a healthy scratch the most recent three weeks. Matt Breida isn’t an each down back and has been used sparingly also.
Washington won’t have the option to join the Dolphins promptly because of league safety measures to forbid the spread of COVID. He will be qualified to play seven days from Sunday. Washington should discover opportunities with the Dolphins given the absence of depth and the requirement for help.
Prior the Dolphins traded WR Isaiah Ford to the Patriots for a 2022 7th round pick. The subtleties of the Washington trade aren’t known right now however it is likely for a late-round draft pick also.
