Heading into week 17, Dolphins’ QB Ryan Fitzpatrick remains the team’s leading rusher with 228 yards. So, with one game left to be played and Myles Gaskin likely out on Sunday with an ankle injury, the Dolphins needed to sign someone to the 53-man roster.
Ian Rapoport believes Perine will be park of the future in the Miami backfield in 2020, which makes sense as the Dolphins don't have a lot of options right now at the position. Dynasty GMs should make note. Perine is a former fourth round pick and was most recently on the Bengals practice squad.
