In Mike McDaniel's first season as head coach, the Dolphins' offence thrived while healthy. Tua Tagovailoa thrived with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.
Miami's running game struggled despite their passing success. They were 25th in running yards due to inconsistent play.
Jeff Wilson Jr., traded from the San Francisco 49ers, had 392 yards and Raheem Mostert 891. McDaniel re-signed Mostert, Wilson, and Gaskin, suggesting he trusts them to lead the backfield.
This offseason, the club traded a third-round selection to the New England Patriots for Jalen Ramsey from the Los Angeles Rams. Running backs might help them make another splash.
Derrick Henry of the Tennessee Titans would boost their offence. If the Titans rebuild this summer, they may trade their top running back.
Henry would greatly improve the Dolphins despite bringing back three players from last year. McDaniel may return to his running game origins with one of the NFL's most prolific running backs.
Henry's price? The Dolphins may deal their third-round pick, No. 84, to the Titans for the former All-Pro.
It's fun to contemplate Henry's devastation in an attack without 11 players concentrating on him. Miami's dynamic passing game would open up spaces he never saw in Tennessee.
Henry's backfield balance would help the Dolphins reach new heights. To avoid head injuries, Tagovailoa should be relieved of pressure in the passing game.
