MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins are keeping fullback Alec Ingold around for a few more years.

NFL Network is reporting that the team and Ingold have agreed on a contract extension worth up $17.2-million.

The fullback is a position that many NFL teams have moved away from.

However, Ingold plays a critical role in Mike McDaniel’s offense as a blocker.

The new deal should keep Ingold around through 2026.

Ingold played in 17 games in 2022. He had 15 catches for 105 yards and a touchdown.

Teammates also regard Ingold as one of the leaders in the locker room.
