In the last 3 years Ronnie has had a torn ACL and a torn Linsfranc injury. As much as I like Ronnie I would go a different route after this season. He wants a long term contract and I honestly do not know the long term effect of these injuries are to a position that receives constant physical abuse. If he has a great season this year then a 2 or 3 year contract is all I would give him. He'll want more than that though.
My prediction on Ronnie:
Even if he completely tears up the league this year, Ronnie will be a FA after this season
The Dolphins will spend a high round pick (1st or 2nd) on a RB in the next draft.
It's really too early to predict draft picks for next year, but Ronnie is too injury prone to count on long term. Ricky is too old to count on and is best as a backup. We will need a RB badly and FA RB's don't cut it as the #1 guy. We will be looking for a RB in the draft. Count on it.
