Brown Talks of the Chances of Moving on Through Free Agency


There’s no doubt that the future of Ronnie Brown as a member of the Miami Dolphins is in doubt, but he is holding out hope that he will still be in South Florida once the 2011 season starts.

Brown was a call-in guest on Sunday on “The Channing Crowder Show” on 560 WQAM, and he chatted about his offseason as well as his future plans.

He’s never known another pro team than the Dolphins, as the 29-year-old was drafted by Miami in the first round back in the 2005 season. There’s been plenty of talk though that the Dolphins will have a different look to the backfield in 2011.

The Dolphins drafted Kansas State tailback Daniel Thomas in the second round of this year’s draft, and general manager Jeff Ireland made recent comments about finding a complement to the rookie this year.

Brown said Sunday that if it’s time for his tenure in Miami to end, he’s ready to move on. “It’s hard, but I am because I came to the reality that that’s a possibility,” Brown said. “You try to put everything in perspective, and my biggest thing is trying to be prepared as much as you can.”

Brown and Williams have anchored Miami’s rushing attack since 2005. Last year, the duo combined to rush for 1,407 yards on 359 rushes (3.9 average), scoring seven touchdowns. They added 52 receptions for 383 yards and a touchdown.

With Ricky Williams also possibly on the way out, there could be two new backs in Miami in 2011. If that’s the case, he’ll move on to a team that needs a RB, and one it could be a move that comes back to haunt the Fins.
