Miami Dolphins GM given no assurances about keeping job

It’s been a rough year for the Miami Dolphins, especially general manager Jeff Ireland.

After things started off so promising thanks to an early season win streak, things quickly fell apart. Combined with a few losses was the Richie Incognito scandal, which rocked the franchise to the core. Poor play and distractions harmed the team for a few weeks before a recent surge put them in position to battle for one of the final playoff spots in the AFC.

Despite that, general manager Jeff  Ireland has been given no assurances about keeping his job going into 2014:

On #Dolphins: GM Jeff Ireland has not been told by Stephen Ross of his status for 2014, the final year of his deal. Will meet at end of year

Ireland has been questioned on how he handled the Incognito situation, which has put his job status on the hot seat.

Of course, Miami’s ownership wouldn’t be overly thrilled paying Ireland to sit on his couch so firing him might be a stretch, but it seems as if there will certainly be some issues to iron out moving forward.
