MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Mike McDaniel has a familiar face back in the backfield.

The Miami Dolphins are signing running back Raheem Mostert, according to his agent.

Mostert worked with McDaniel in San Francisco.

Mostert played two plays in the 2021 season before suffering a knee injury.

He only played in 8 games in 2020.

Back in 2019, Mostert led the 49ers in rushing.

The Dolphins have already signed running back Chase Edmonds, as McDaniel works to install and rebuild the offense.
