Jeff Ireland has enough problems with his current roster at the moment, so he certainly doesn’t need former players making matters even worse. Former journeyman quarterback Sage Rosenfels, who played for the Dolphins from 2002 to 2005 and again while Ireland was the general manager in 2011, didn’t exactly enjoy his second stint with the organization and took to Twitter on Thursday to  offer up some insight on the Dolphins’ organization and dish some dirt Ireland. Rosenfels, who spent 11 seasons with five different teams, re-joined the Dolphins in 2011 but was only on the active roster for two weeks before being placed on the non-football injury (NFI) list when he contracted mononucleosis. Once Rosenfels was healthy, though, he says Ireland refused to take the quarterback off the NFI list or release him as he feared Rosenfels knew too much about the Dolphins’ offense. Instead, Ireland waited until the beginning of December to cut the quarterback, leaving Rosenfels a small chance of being signed — the vikings claimed him off waivers. The saga left Rosenfels with a bad taste in his mouth about Ireland and a deeper understanding of just how the general manager approached his business. Rosenfels even went as far as to call Ireland the “worst GM in my career.” Check out some of Rosenfels’ very pointed tweets below. Click here for his entire timeline of thoughts. I only spent two weeks on the Dolphins when Ireland was the GM. In that short time he won the award for worst GM in my career. #jerk— Sage Rosenfels (@SageRosenfels18) November 07, 2013 My reasons for my disdain for Ireland are a long story. It took about an hour to find out what everyone in that locker room thought of him.— Sage Rosenfels (@SageRosenfels18) November 07, 2013 I understand GMs always put their teams first. I respect that. But he was being a jerk just because he could. That's why he won the award.— Sage Rosenfels (@SageRosenfels18) November 07, 2013 I played for 5 teams and 9 GMs and Ireland is the only 1 I had a problem with. I was also traded 3 times and cut twice. Yes, I was average.— Sage Rosenfels (@SageRosenfels18) November 07, 2013Filed under: Headlines, Luke Hughes, Miami Dolphins, NFL
