This week we had an opportunity to chat with Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post. Andrew has close to a year as the Dolphins beat reporter and has covered the ups and downs of the Dolphins 2013 season. Andrew shared with us some insight on the aftermath of the Ted Wells report, where the Dolphins could look in the draft and in free agency, and if there could be a Dan Marino sighting in the Miami front office.
1. Despite what has been written in the Ted Wells Report, where do the Dolphins go from here? What are the lasting effects that could very well affect the Dolphins personnel-wise? Could this plague the Dolphins in the future when attracting free-agents?
The Wells report might be the most embarrassing chapter in Dolphins history, but it doesn’t have to be a franchise killer. This isn’t the NBA where players have guaranteed deals and can sign with the most popular team. The Dolphins will still attract quality free agents because there’s only so much money to go around in the NFL.
But this will hurt the Dolphins financially because fans are already fed up with a decade and a half of mediocrity and the Martin/Incognito saga is giving the fan base even less reason to be excited about the 2014 season. Only winning will bring fans back to Sun Life Stadium.
The Dolphins next move has to be bringing in high-character players who won’t do anything to further sully the franchise while figuring out a way to get the most out of this roster since the majority of the key players (offensive line withstanding) will return in 2014. The Dolphins completely lacked an identity last season and the coaching staff has to step up in a big way in 2014.no comments
