It would appear that if Oakland is the place where NFL career go to wither and die, Seattle is the place they go to rejuvenate and get resurrected. After trading for embattled Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor, Alex Marvez from FOXSports.com is reporting that the Seahawks have hired former Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland as a pre-draft consultant.
Ireland was not a popular figure among Dolphins fans at the end of his tenure there as just about everything that went wrong was blamed on him, including the bullying scandal that rocked the locker room. But while he was guilty of not looking into the matter before it happened, fans grew more tired of Ireland due to the roster moves he did — and didn’t — make.
But while he burned bridges in Miami it appears Ireland is getting a new chance to revive his front office career in Seattle. He seems to only have a temporary gig, there are worse places to try and revive your career a given how well the Seahawks have drafted in recent years, vein associated with that credibility may end up helping Ireland in the long run.
