Dolphins Extend Contract Of GM Jeff Ireland

Dolphins_Jeff_Ireland_1The Miami Dolphins are off to their best start in a decade, and some surmised the biggest winner has been Jeff Ireland, the Dolphins’ general manager.

But in reality, doubt about Ireland’s job security was largely erased in the offseason, when the Dolphins quietly extended his contract, a league source told The Miami Herald on Monday.

Details about the deal have not been made public, but the new contract ensures Ireland will be with the team through at least the 2014 season. His previous deal was set to expire after the current campaign.
