What are your concerns that need addressing first and what are you most content with at this point.
I want a smart head coach that will hire innovative coordinators.
My main concern on offense is the line, guards first then upgrade at center if possible Pouncy is becoming injury prone.
On defense I want Vernon resigned, Wake back for one more year.
Two big physical corners.
An all pro inside line backer that is a team leader.
These would be my A-list needs.

Bringing back home grown talent would be priority number 1 (Miller and Vernon specifically). See if we can bring back Wake on a backloaded extension, convert Suh to mostly signing bonus and let Miko Grimes,Misi and Sheppard go. We need to bring in a starting caliber tackle that can back up both Albert and James. This offense with Tannehill, Miller, Parker and Landry has a lot of potential but we aren't able to measure it correctly. At least 1 new guard is a must, you could argue 2. Making a big splash in free agency was done last year and didn't work out so well. We should take a different approach this year. Hiring a coach with an identity then finding guys who fit that identity is the only way our offense can start.

First things first. I rehire Jeff Ireland, so I can then immediately fire him.



I try and hire Jon Gruden. If he won't come out of retirement, I go get a defensive minded headcoach.


Then, I focus on fixing the offensive line. I bring in at least 2 guards and one Tackle. I use free agency first for this, and then what I dont feel confident about I get in the draft.

Then I use a high draft pick on a MLB.

Those are my priorities, but I am also not expecting a one year turnaround. Our core is Tannehill and the the WR's. I'd defintely want OV and Miller back if they'll return.

As my final act on my first day, I'd personally escort Brent Grimes and his wife out of the state of Florida.

I would also want Miller back, that would go on my A list also.
If Grimes wanted to take a pay cut I would keep him one more year as my 2 new corners get up to speed plus he would add good depth.

Well if this happened, Stephen Ross sold the team.....

First thing, find a coach (but would not settle)

Second thing, cut the fat off the team and start getting draft picks over the next 2 years. 2016 and 2017.

Use these picks to take care of Oline, LB and DB

My first order of business will be to give the front office time off the first two weeks of free agency. No signings, none at all.

I cut Dallas Thomas immediately

Hire a HC with previous HC experience

1) The GM of the Dolphins with total control.
2) Ross is the owner of the Dolphins.

These two statements are diametrically opposed to each other, one has to be true, and one has to be false.
