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did not sign an offer sheet with another team, meaning the Dolphins would have his rights this year, unless they rescinded his tag or traded him.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.

Born in the Nation’s Capital, Washington D.C., Ari Russell watched the rise of the 1980’s Miami Hurricanes and knew that he had to be part of the “U” someday. After graduating from Coral Gables, Ari rose through the ranks of the former XM Satellite Radio and then Sirius/XM as college football executive producer. He later spent 2 seasons as the publisher of the website “Beyond U Sports” focusing on major college football/basketball. Ari brings a great perspective on everything Miami, including the Dolphins to F.F.I.
