Dolphins | Kory Sheets wants to show versatility

Miami Dolphins RB Kory Sheets is looking to prove to the team that he is more than just a fast running back, reports Omar Kelly, of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Sheets said, "I want to prove I can do other things outside of run and catch the ball. I want to prove I'm an every down back. That's been my main focus." Sheets will need to stand out during training camp and the preseason now that RBs Ronnie Brown (knee) and Patrick Cobbs (knee) are healthy. However, there are some things Sheets needs to do better, such as his pass blocking. Head coach Tony Sparano said, "We've talked to him at the end of the year about ways to get better and to improve. I've seen some improvement. (Blocking) will separate some of the backs, and certainly with Kory that will be some of the deciding factors down the road, how he handles that." Sheets will need to compete with Cobbs and RB Lex Hilliard for one of the final roster spots.
