Miami Dolphins sign free agent running back

Knowshon Moreno will be taking his talents to south beach. It might not be as grandiose as a certain basketball star's move to Florida, but the Miami Dolphins will certainly be excited at the acquisition.

The former Broncos' running back wasn't needed at Denver and it seems that Miami were, surprisingly, the only team with a big interest in his services.

The reason it comes as a surprise is just because of the sheer amount of production Moreno managed to put up last season.

In the Peyton Manning ran offense Moreno started 15 of the 16 regular season games with 241 attempts for 1,038 yards at an average of 4.3 yards per run.

The 26-year old picked up 10 touchdowns on the ground to go along with three receiving TD's and 548 yards through the air, becoming the first Bronco in franchise history to rush for over 1000 yards and receive for over 500 yards in the same season.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the running back has agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with the Dolphins, according to a source.

Moreno has torn his ACL in the past though, probably a pre-cursor to why the Broncos have given Montee Ball the starting job and why the Dolphins have only offered a one year deal.

The Dolphins are looking to severely upgrade their rushing attack after both Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas were poor last year. Miller, in his first year as the team's starter, ran for 709 yards with two touchdowns while Thomas added 406 yards with four scores. Moreno will certainly be an improvement on that.
