Jeff Fisher Dolphins

Jeff Fisher Dolphins, Two days ago Jeff Fisher’s tenure as Miami Dolphins head coach had all but started. The Dolphins and Fisher had reportedly agreed to a $7 million per year deal, but ESPN.com reported Thursday that Fisher has not yet decided between offers from the Dolphins and Rams.
Miami Dolphins coach Stephen Ross had vowed to beat any other offer Fisher recieved, but Fisher’s camp claims he is not trying to leverage himself into a more lucrative deal.
A source told ESPN “This is not about money.” Instead, it’s “about winning.”
Not that Fisher does not need any extra time to figure out which team has a brighter future. The Dolphins and Rams have both seen very little success as of late.
The Dolphins’ troubles are known by now. St. Louis, on the other hand, has won 15 games in the last five seasons.
While the Dolphins have more talent on their roster, St. Louis has a young franchise quarterback, Sam Bradford. The NFL is a passing league, and that might be more valuable than any player on Miami’s roster.
“He has vacillated a lot,” another source told the Miami Herald. “It has been tough for Jeff. It would be easier if he really disliked one of the two places, but he didn’t.”
Adam Shefter of ESPN says he expects Fisher to make a decision by the end of the day Friday. Shefter said no negotiations have taken place between Fisher and either team. Once he decides which team he wants to coach, he will begin contract negotiations.
Among Fisher’s other concerns, besides winning, is the fact that the Rams could move from St. Louis after 2014. Shefter reports Miami is considered to have a slight edge, but neither Miami nor St. Louis have any idea who Fisher will choose.
