Dolphins HC Adam Gase talked about RB Arian Foster's route running:
“I’ve always been a fan of how he does things. He’s the type of guy that he can run his route tree similar to what a wide receiver’s is. When we worked him out, I put him in a couple of spots just to see how that looked and he runs about as smooth as any running back that I’ve ever seen. I’ll be interested to see how far we can grow the running back position with him.”
Gase said he's admired Foster for quite some time and thinks it's a great opportunity for both the Dolphins and Foster. It's still early, but those targeting or already owning Jay Ajayi probably don't find this a great opportunity. It appears Foster will at least be a big part of the passing game if he can remain healthy.
