Sony Michel has made a decision and the two-time Super Bowl champion has opted to bring his act to Miami.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the 27-year-old will join the crowded running back rotation of the Dolphins. The deal is allegedly worth $2.1 million according to a source in a report from ESPN.

This was after Michel had free-agent visits to Miami and the New Orleans Saints post-draft. However, he will have to find a way to stand out against the other RBs on the Dolphins' side.

Among those in the mix include Chase Edmonds, Raheem Mostert, Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed. Michele is the third running back to sign with the Dolphins this offseason.

The Florida native spent three seasons with the New England Patriots before he moved to the Los Angeles Rams last season.

He played 17 games and started seven times for the Super Bowl champions last season.

He had 208 carries for 845 yards and four touchdowns while catching 21 passes for 128 yards and a score. In four playoff games, he had 29 touches for 72 yards.

So far, Michel has 3,137 career rushing yards, 386 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns.

Michel could provide the Dolphins a boost in the rushing offense. They finished 30th in rushing yards in 2021.

Miami also finished with the third-fewest average yards before contact and the seventh-fewest average yards after contact last year.

The Dolphins have been trying to build up in the offseason under the watch of new head coach, Mike McDaniel. Among their key moves include the signing of offensive tackle Terron Armstead and trading away wide receiver Tyreek Hill.

For Michel, it will also be a homecoming of sorts. The 27-year-old was a five-star running back at American Heritage School which is roughly 20 miles from Hard Rock Stadium.
