Report: Jeff Ireland Staying with Dolphins

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

In a move that is sure to upset part of the Miami Dolphins' fan base, team sources are reporting that Jeff Ireland will indeed stay with the team for next season. Owner Stephen Ross is expected to address the media sometime this week, but will not announce the firing of the General Manager.

Miami Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland may be the most hated man in South Florida. There have been banners flown over the stadium asking owner Stephen Ross to fire Ireland. There is a constant stream on Twitter, posts on blogs, and comments on fan and media sites about the embattled GM.

However, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, it appears the Dolphins will not be in the market for a new GM this season:

The Dolphins finished this season 7-9, their fourth straight losing season, matching the worst four stretch in franchise history, 1966-1969. The team hired head coach Joe Philbin after last season and drafted quarterback Ryan Tannehill in the first round of last year's draft. The team is looking to build around Tannehill, adding weapons this offseason through free agency and the draft.
