So, the thing about this is, and it has been frustrating for us fans, is to bring in players whom everyone else in the league knows are washed up but for some reason we think they have something left in the tank and we elevate them as starters. Call it what you will, but the "Tank for Tua" decision purged that thought from Grier's mind as he took total control of the team personnel and built this team with youth and veterans in their prime.

(RB Arian) Foster was the latest in a line of Pro Bowl players who joined the Dolphins, only to see their career end abruptly.

The last was guard Josh Sitton, who sustained a serious shoulder injury in the 2018 opener and never played again.

There was running back Thurman Thomas, who joined the Dolphins in 2000 after all his great years in Buffalo and was contributing as a pass-catching running back until a knee injury ended his season — and ultimately his career.

Other Pro Bowl players who finished off their career with one season in Miami include QB Jay Cutler, WR Cris Carter and LB Lawrence Timmons, among others.
