Dolphins Work Out Alex Collins

The Dolphins worked out former Ravens running back Alex Collins, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Collins didn’t play last season, but he’s aiming to get back to work in 2020.

Collins led the Ravens in rushing in 2017 with 973 yards, so he’d be a logical fit for the Dolphins as they look to revamp their backfield. Collins would not be the centerpiece of the Dolphins’ RB group, but he’d be an option worth exploring as a part of the team’s 90-man roster. The Dolphins figure to have upwards of $90MM in cap space and a bevy of draft picks, so they should have ample opportunities to upgrade.

Collins served his three-game ban for marijuana possession while in free agency limbo, so he’s ready to go for Week 1 of the upcoming season. If he doesn’t sign with the Dolphins, it’s possible that he could circle back to the Seahawks, Packers, and Bills – the teams he auditioned for down the stretch.

In addition to Collins, the Dolphins also worked out CFL quarterback Chris Streveler, Yates reports.
