Miami morning take: Xanders to Miami?

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Friday around the Web:

  • Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald takes a look at the good and bad of general manager candidate Brian Xanders.

Morning take: Xanders has GM experience. That is what separates him from other candidates. However, Xanders’ track record has some misses, which is why he also was fired by the Denver Broncos in 2012.

  • Dave George of the Palm Beach Post writes Xanders should be the Dolphins' top choice.

Morning take: Miami has an interesting structure behind the scenes where they need someone to finesse things better than former GM Jeff Ireland. Xanders could do that.

  • Brian Coyle of the Dolphins team site reports they will look very closely at the Senior Bowl.

Morning take: It will be interesting to see if Miami has its new GM in place by the Senior Bowl. This is a big scouting opportunity. Yet, Miami’s head personnel person may miss the process.

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel wonders if the Dolphins’ next GM knows what they’re getting into.

Morning take: This job isn’t for everyone. The Dolphins’ next general manager won’t come in with the typical power of the position. Miami is looking for a scouting type to play their role and not be above the head coach.
