Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Texans are making a “strong push” to sign Dolphins free agent RB Lamar Miller.

The Texans and Cowboys were mentioned as being the front-runners to sign Miller. However, it appears as though Houston is the team to beat for his services.

Miller, 24, played out the final year of his four-year, $2.58 million rookie contract that included a $486,000 signing bonus and is now in position to be one of the best available running backs in this year’s free agent class.

In 2015, Miller appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and ran for 872 yards on 194 carries (4.5 YPC) to go along with 47 receptions for 397 yards receiving and 10 total touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 5 running back out of 68 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 100 – 2016 Free Agents list.
