Versatile full back Alec Ingold has become the second highest paid FB in the NFL after signing a 3-year $17.2-million extension with the Dolphins that will keep in him in Miami through the 2026 season.

Despite a lot of teams not using full backs, Ingold tallied 418 snaps (15th most for the Dolphins in 2022). Able to run, receive and block, Ingold represents a good weapon of the backfield.


One of the fun stories about Alec Ingold’s versatility was his time in camp, where he would be coached by WR’s coach Wes Welker on the intricacies of a route he was running. Ten minutes later TE coach Jon Embree was seen coaching him on how to block and then release on a specific play. Then a little later first-year OL coach Butch Barry was teaching him blocking technique on pass protection.

It’s this level of versatility the Dolphins treasure, especially with a QB who has had injury issues in the past. Being able to have a RB in the backfield that can block, run, or release not only keeps the defence on their heels it allows the security of that extra blocker.

With the Dolphins only carrying two tight ends on their 53-man roster except to see an uptick in the number of snaps for Ingold this season.
