Big O Show: Just Say No To DeMarco

The Miami Dolphins hosted free agent running back DeMarco Murray for a visit on Monday. Sure, he's a 3-time pro bowler, but he's also thirty years old. Running backs rarely stay productive after their twenties. Plus, he was plagued by injury in 2017. 

As usual, Orlando "The Big O" Alzugaray has no shortage of opinions. He discussed Murray's visit and whether the Dolphins should sign him. 

"DeMarco Murray. Huh? What is it with broken running backs? Does Gase just like the Arian Fosters and DeMarco Murrays? Murray was already out of gas last year. You saw it with the Titans. What's he coming here for?"

To Big O, there could be a deeper meaning here as to why head coach Adam Gase and the Dolphins front office want to give Murray a look. 

"I told you guys I was worried that they would try to save their jobs. That's what they're trying to do: anything to save their jobs. They should have blown this entire thing up from year one. The worst thing that happened to Gase was making the playoffs (in 2016). That put all the pressure on them to bounce back after they had a bad year in 2017. Now they're trying to save their asses."
