The Miami Dolphins are signing RB Sony Michel, according to Ian Rapoport.
Michel will have an opportunity to spear-head the Dolphins’ backfield, as he visited with the team earlier this offseason and obviously felt they would be a good fit for his services.
Michel, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Patriots back in 2018. He’s coming off of the final year of a four-year, $9,626,694 contract that included a $5,081,232 signing bonus.
The Patriots traded Michel to the Rams last year for a fifth and sixth-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft.
New England declined Michel’s fifth-year option, making him an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In 2021, Michel appeared in 17 games for the Rams and rushed for 845 yards on 208 carries (4.1 YPC) to go along with 21 receptions for 128 yards receiving and five total touchdowns.
