The Miami Dolphins look to have won the contract battle with RB Damien Williams. After about a three week holdout in hopes of getting a multi year deal, Williams conceded and signed a one year restricted free agent tender with the Dolphins.

The Miami Herald has more:

As an RFA, Williams was allowed to negotiate with other teams until April 21. He ultimately did not sign an offer sheet with another team, meaning the Dolphins would have his rights this year, unless they rescinded his tag or traded him.

Since neither of the the above happened, Williams will play in 2017 under a one year contract worth $1.8 million, which was the tag the team placed on him two months ago.

Last season Williams had 364 total yards from scrimmage and 6 TDs which was his best season as a pro.
