"Just a day after signing Daniel Thomas, the Dolphins have reportedly worked out LaMichael James, another former 2nd round pick at running back who was recently waived."

Impressive accolades, but this dude has taken a free fall since his Oregon days. He spent 2012-2014 with the 9ers. 61st pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

"However, there are reasons why James went unclaimed when he was waived by the 49'ers weeks ago. Most worrisome is the fact that he's been very fumble prone in the NFL after being fumble prone in college. He's fumbled 4 times in 46 offensive "touches" (handoffs plus catches), or once every 11.5 times on average. Most starting running backs average at least 80 touches per fumble, so James has fumbled almost 8 times as frequently as the league average once you factor how rarely he's had the ball in the NFL."
