Dolphins add RB Knowshon Moreno

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

The Miami Dolphins are synonymous with the name Marino.  Now, they will hope to thrive with a “Moreno” of the same name.  Knowshon Moreno has signed a one year deal worth a reported three million dollars with the Dolphins after spending his first five years with the Denver Broncos.   Moreno was the #12 pick in the first-round of the 2009 draft by the Broncos and finished last season with just under 1,600 yards and 13 touchdowns on 301 touches.  He will be 27 when the season begins and figures to split time with Lamar Miller in the role that Daniel Thomas held last year.  Thomas may become a cap casualty as Miami also has last year’s fifth-round pick Mike Gillislee on the roster and very few teams need or carry four running backs.   (more…)
