Inks contract tender
Ahmed, who was an exclusive rights free agent, has signed his contract tender with the Dolphins, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
The 23-year-old logged 54 carries for 149 yards and added 12 catches on 19 targets for 117 yards in 12 games with the Dolphins in 2021. This coming season, Ahmed, along with Myles Gaskin and Gerrid Doaks, slots into a depth role in Miami's backfield, behind Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert. It's a context that limits Ahmed's fantasy upside so long as the team's top duo remains healthy and available.
