At one point during the Dolphins’ process of searching for a new G.M., Giants V.P. of player evaluation Marc Ross reportedly was slated to be interviewed.
He hasn’t. It’s unclear whether he will.
Via Jordan Ranaan of NJ.com, the chatter at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama is that candidates are being steered away from the job.
If true, it’s not a surprise. Multiple candidates have rebuffed the Dolphins, amid persistent talk of dysfunction and competing agendas. The handling of the Davone Bess situation potentially makes the job even less attractive, since the new G.M. will have to change an apparent hardball “gotcha” culture that resulted in the Dolphins reportedly snookering the Browns.
The job of G.M. is hard enough when the organization doesn’t need to be fixed. The degree of difficulty with the Dolphins could make any viable candidates with options opt to do something else.
