It is looking more and more like Lamar Miller won’t be returning to the Miami Dolphins in 2016. Reports are saying that Miller has already been contacted by a few teams with the Dallas Cowboys possibly being his biggest suitor.
Despite having a 1,000-yard rusher in Darren McFadden in 2015, it looks like the Cowboys are looking to get better at the running back position. While many believe the Cowboys could take running back Ezekiel Elliott with their fourth overall pick or Derrick Henry with their early second round pick, it looks like they will attempt to find their guy ahead of the NFL Draft in April.
Not definitely gone, but he'll have suitors. Just five minutes ago I heard Dallas Cowboys a possibility. https://t.co/wKYmYsuWcv

After switching from fullback to running back in 2013, Miller has had a terrific career with the Dolphins. He has recorded nearly 3,000 yards on the ground with 19 touchdowns.
He had his best statistical season in 2014 with 1,099 yards and eight touchdowns. Last season, he had 872 yards and eight more scores, while catching passes for 397 yards and two touchdowns.
I think it’s safe to say that Miller would be a huge pickup for any team this offseason.
