Miami (CBS HOUSTON) – 
Miami Dolphins Running Back Lamar Miller looks to be leaving the Dolphins as a free agent when the new league year starts on Wednesday.  According to Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel in Miami the running back could be heading to Texas.

“The Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys appear to be the front-runners,” Kelly says. “Miller, who contributed 1,269 total yards and led the Dolphins with 10 touchdowns last season.”

Kelly says that the Dolphins seemed to have thrown in the towel and sources tell him Miller won’t be back to Miami.

Also, Denver radio host Benjamin Allbright tweeted out Tuesday morning that the Texans are a heavy favorite.

Miller ran for 175 yards against the Houston Texans and caught three passes for 61 yards in week seven of the 2015 NFL Season.
