MIAMI - 2009: Jeff Ireland of the Miami Dolphins poses for his 2009 NFL headshot at photo day in Miami, Florida. (Photo by NFL Photos)
Are the Miami Dolphins secretly looking for a new general manager?  This could go down as a Twitter hoax, but this afternoon Twitter was set ablaze by the following tweet: Most feel Jeff Ireland is safe, but #Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross met (discreetly) w/ Mike Giddings Jr. about GM position in the last 72-hrs. — PayneInsider.com (@PayneInsider) January 2, 2013 There is a large portion of the fan base that thinks Jeff Ireland should be fired as the Dolphins GM for a number of reasons that we won’t get into right now.  The source of the tweet is a little known NFL insider/bettor, so take the rumor for what it’s worth.  It’s hard to imagine that someone would make this up.  But who knows!  Right now, it appears it was just a meeting between Stephen Ross and Michael Giddings Jr.  Jeff Ireland is still the Dolphins General Manager. If you’re wondering who Mike Giddings Jr. is……so are we.  We tried to do some digging on Giddings, but came up with very little.  Seriously, try googling him.  From what we know, he has been used by many NFL teams as a scouting consultant.  We’ll keep you posted if any more news develops on this story…..
