It appears that the Miami Dolphins have already selected a replacement for fired general manager Dennis Hickey.
Chris Grier, who has been with the franchise for 15 seasons — the last eight as the team’s director of college scouting — is expected to be named the Fins’ new GM. The Palm Beach Post has been told Grier is expected to be hired, but not until Monday.
The Miami Herald is reporting that the decision is made.
WalterFootball.com, a site well-known for NFL Draft profiles and information, calls Grier one of the top talent evaluators in the NFL. Many, including those who write for WalterFootball.com, believe that Grier should’ve been promoted to the general manager position when Jeff Ireland was fired.
