NFL: Preseason-Miami Dolphins at New Orleans Saints Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

When Chris Grier and Stephen Ross began searching for a new head coach, the two wanted to find a candidate that would be a leader to the whole team. They weren’t looking for a star offensive coordinator, they just wanted a leader of men. The team is hoping Brian Flores is that guy to lead this team out of mediocrity, but it will take some time. This past offseason, the team didn’t spend and acquired plenty of draft picks through various trades. The Dolphins have the ammunition and it’s up to Flores and Grier to make the right decisions.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
