Dolphins request to interview Tom Gamble

The Miami Dolphins have requested to interview Philadelphia Eagles Vice President of Player Personnel Tom Gamble, ESPN’s Adam Caplan reports.

Gamble is considered a strong contender for Miami’s general manager opening. I’m hearing behind the scenes that Gamble is a favorite of Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, which carries a lot of weight.

Gamble has been successful building playoff teams at recent stops with the Eagles and San Francisco 49ers. The Dolphins began interviews for their general manager opening Friday after parting ways with Jeff Ireland this week after six seasons.
