The Dolphins have joined their AFC East rivals in New York by making it known that all salaries will be restored to where they were on May 15, the date on which the team began to cut pay.
In a letter to all staff, a copy of which PFT has obtained, Dolphins CEO Mike Dee also advised the employees that they will receive in their next paychecks any money that has been withheld.
“On behalf of Steve Ross and our senior leadership team, THANK YOU for your attitude, your support and your exemplary contributions during a time where individuals who were less committed may have wavered,” Dee wrote.
So that’s two down, and we’re not sure how many more to go. We’ll dust off the list of the teams that took money from non-player employees during the lockout, and we’ll start banging the drum for the rest of them to do the right thing.
