Mike McDaniel explains why Dolphins signed Sony Michel

There is high hopes for the Miami Dolphins’ attack after an off-season period full of additions to this side of the ball.

Among the positions where general manager Chris Greer and coach Mike McDaniel seemed to be key were regression, adding Miami’s Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert and Sonny Michele to a room that wasn’t quite as productive as it should have been in 2021. (92.2 yards dash per game – good 29th in the American Football League).

Michel is the latest signing, joining the team just last week. The move came as a bit of a surprise, considering that the Dolphins already had Edmonds, Mostert, Miles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed, Jared Dukes and uncut free agent Zackander White on the list.

McDaniel, speaking to the media on Tuesday, took a moment to explain the signing.

“[With] Sonny, you have an off-season opportunity to add a player of his caliber and pedigree, just as human, a multiple Super Bowl winner,” McDaniel said. His interests match ours. The competition for the Miami Dolphins is nothing but a good thing. I think the one thing that is unique about that particular room is that no one is shy about the competition. Everyone out there is excited about the attack and the chances and they want the best man to win.”

Competition has been a constant topic in Miami since McDaniel joined the cast in February, so this summer it will be interesting to watch in every position but especially when running backwards.
