No one seems to know at the moment exactly what the Dolphins vacant General Manager position will entail, to the point that minority candidates have been advised to avoid. Owner Stephen Ross followed by saying the job includes final say, but at the moment, it’s final say over what’s kind of a mess.
So the Dolphins are aiming high, now looking at a guy who has resisted other chances for promotions.
According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins have contacted Ravens assistant G.M. Eric DeCosta about the opening.
DeCosta has turned down numerous chances to leave Baltimore before, as he’s viewed as the heir to G.M. Ozzie Newsome there. He’s pledged his loyalty there, and with good reason. He’s part of a stable structure with a track record of success and none of the dysfunction the Dolphins currently offer.
Perhaps this is a case of Ross shooting for the moon, but it’s hard to imagine DeCosta turning down other chances to take this one.
