So why are the Dolphins having a hard time luring free agents to South Beach? Steelers safety Ryan Clark has a theory.
After Clark congratulated quarterback Matt Flynn on joining the Seahawks via Twitter, one of Clark’s followers writes that “NO ONE wants to go to the Dolphins!” Clark responds by saying, “No one! To believe I almost went there but it was easy decision not to.”
Clark was referring to his decision in 2010 to stay with the Steelers in lieu of joining the Dolphins.
So what’s the issue? Clark later says, “It’s my honest opinion. Not a good guy making decisions.”
Here’s referring, presumably, to G.M. Jeff Ireland.
Clark didn’t specifically say whether other players share his opinion, but it’s implied in the “No one!” tweet.
If it’s true, the Dolphins need to find a way to fix the situation. If it’s not true, the Dolphins need to find a way to reverse a false perception.
