The Miami Dolphins are certainly looking to bolster their running attack during their already busy and wild off season.
After trading Jay Ajayi in the middle of last season and with Damien Williams a free agent the only RB left with experience will be Kenyon Drake.
The Miami Herald is reporting that the Dolphins will be bring in three time pro bowl RB DeMarco Murray on Sunday night.

Murray, who was cut by the Tennessee Titans this week, is certainly one of the most decorated free agent RBs on the market. Adding him to an already revamped offense certainly will be intriguing.
Murray, however had a pedestrian season in 2017 rushing for 659 yards sharing the back field with Derrick Henry.He is considered one of the best past blocking RBs in the league. A skill very much needed in this day an age.
What also make Murray an appealing option is his ability to catch the football. He has 307 career catches and 6 receiving TDs.
Obviously if he’s able to return to his Pro Bowl stature or at least close it would be a tremendous addition.
Now the question will be at what price? Will the Dolphins be willing to spend the money to bring him in? He has already visited with the Seattle Seahawks this week and it’s expected there will be other suitors too.
Murray was slated to make $6.5 million in Nashville this season, but at 30 years old, it’s unlikely that any team will give him a deal with that kind of base salary.
Murray was originally drafted by the Cowboys in 2011, signed with the Eagles as free agent and then, was traded to the Titans after just one season in Philly in 2016.
So, he has been well traveled. The Dolphins clearly have a need at running back, but don’t have a lot to spend. We may have a better idea late Sunday night or Monday morning where this goes.
