Report: Dolphins Work Out Former 49ers RB LaMichael James

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Dolphins worked out former 49ers RB LaMichael James on Tuesday.

This is the first reported interest in James since San Francisco placed him on waivers last week. He wound up going unclaimed and is now able to sign with a team of his choosing.

James, 24, was taken in the second-round of the 2012 draft, but was unable to carve out a role with the 49ers. Previous reports mentioned that James had requested a trade, but there was little to no reported interest.

Last year, the 49ers had James active for just 10 games, which had a lot to do with him being slotted as the No. 4 running back on the team’s depth chart. To make matters worse, James played just 28 snaps this season and totaled 59 yards on 12 carries.

We’ll have more regarding any potential visits as the news is available.
