The Miami Dolphins aren't even hiding the fact they expect Lamar Miller to replace Reggie Bush as the team's starter in 2012.

Inside the team's headquarters there's no talk about Miller competing with former second-round pick Daniel Thomas, or one of the other young tailbacks on the roster.

And there's very little discussion about adding another veteran tailback once Bush signs with another team, say the Lions or the Chargers (that's the word on the street).
