14Stay Away - Miami Dolphins

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

A free agent like Adrian Peterson is tempting because he’s not just a great player; he’s a proven commodity. Teams are looking at Adrian Peterson and thinking “We can do great things in the next few seasons if we have him on our roster.” Peterson has only had

one mediocre season in which he’s played over five games. He’s a sure thing. Comparatively, Miami Dolphins running back Jay Ajayi is not a proven commodity. He’s a guy that’s shown flashes of brilliance, but the Dolphins don’t know if he can be a long-term workhorse. As painful as it may sound, the Dolphins need to put their faith in Ajayi and accept the potential consequences. They’re still in a rebuilding phase and Ajayi can keep them young and keep the cap down.
