The Miami Dolphins acquired running back Lynn Bowden Jr. from the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday.

The Dolphins traded a fourth-round pick for Bowden. They also received a sixth-round pick from the Raiders.

Bowden reacted to the news of his trade via Twitter.

Bowden was drafted by Las Vegas in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He spent three years at the University of Kentucky where he played a combination of wide receiver, running back and quarterback.

He also returned kicks and punts for the Wildcats.

Last season, Bowden showed his all-around abilities, rushing for 1,468 yards on 185 carries. He also scored 13 touchdowns on the ground and added another one receiving. He finished the year with 30 receptions for 348 yards.

Bowden also played some quarterback, throwing the ball 74 times. He completed just 47.3 percent of his passes for 403 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.

He should provide the Dolphins with a diverse skill set on offense this season.
