Source: FB Polite to stay with Dolphins
The 27-year-old Polite is now under contract through the 2011 season.
It shouldn't be a surprise that the Dolphins would give him a home. Bill Parcells had him on and off the roster from 2004 to 2006 when he was the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. Parcells runs the front office of the Dolphins and signed him to a contract last season.
Last year, Polite played 11 games and started five. Unlike a lot of fullbacks in the league, Polite got a chance to carry the ball rather than just block. He had 23 carries for 85 yards.
