Dolphins | Saban discusses fullback competition

MiamiDolphins.com reports Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban discussed the fullback competition between FB Darian Barnes and FB Fred Beasley. " I think it's a good competition. I think both guys are doing a lot of good things and I think that's healthy to have on your team. We're not ready to draw any conclusions about where anybody is. I think both guys have shown very well for us this year at times. Fred (Beasley) played better in this game than the week before and made improvement. Barnes has been an excellent blocker for us and has toughness. Both guys make a contribution. We want to keep the best players that we can, but there are other things that are considered in that too – their roles on the team, relative to another position, special teams and all that kind of stuff. You can't look at just that position myopically and not look at it a little bit more from 1,000 feet, relative to how we would decide to keep people at that position."
