Hickey not picking former boss as assistant GM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a 4-12 record last year and that got general manager Mark Dominik fired. Meanwhile Bucs director of player personnel Dennis Hickey got promoted to general manager by the Dolphins.

And as Hickey worked for Dominik for quite some time and the two seemed to get along there was speculation that Hickey, now in charge of his own personnel department, might hire Dominik as his assistant general manager.

That seemed particularly possible after Hickey fired former assistant general manager Brian Gaine.

But no.

Dominik today accepted a post at ESPN as an NFL front office "insider." He will appear on the seemingly infinite ESPN platforms -- you know, NFL Insiders, NFL Live, SportsCenter, ESPN2, ESPN radio, ESPN the bus, ESPN the kitchen utensil, ESPN in your underwear -- to provide commentary and insight.

And while that assignment does not preclude Dominik from joining a front office in the future, it clearly shows he's not joining any NFL front office, including the Dolphins, anytime soon.

The Dolphins don't currently have an assistant general manager as they enter the homestretch of their draft preparations.

The Dolphins, by the way, still don't have a head trainer, either, following the February firing of Kevin O'Neill as a fallout from the Wells Report. And while O'Neill is preparing legal action against the Dolphins for what he apparently believes to be wrongful termination, the Dolphins are going slow methodically in their search for a replacement.

FoxSports1 (sports network that doesn't have a bus or kitchen utensil) reported the search continues with names under consideration including Dave Price, former trainer of the Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets, Green Bay Packers assistant trainer Bryan Engel, and Kevin Bastin who was the head trainer for the Houton Texans from 2001-2009.

Isnt that what the ship at the stadium is for?

I agree with Craig and DD on this one. I'd want the team to be grooming a credible back-up who's potential we do not know rather than a guy (Devlin) who doesn't seem to have a future as a starter in this league. Matt is fine as a backup, but that's all he's going to be. If we can get a guy who can take his spot, then I think it's worth a 3rd, 4th, 5th round pick. Whether McCarron is that guy I do not yet have an opinion on, I'd like to see what happens at his Pro Day and the "word on the street" closer to the Draft.

Fluker? He. Didn't play for the Giants. He played for the Chargers.

Keep up, would ya....

DD, fine you wopuld like it, I would rather spend that pick elsewhere, not going to agree and there is really no answer to say someone is right or wrong. We each made our points and now we see what happens.

Mark - I am saying that BPA is a luxury approach for teams who have few NEEDS. This current line up has HOLES which is worse than NEEDS. The RT and G spots are HOLES. The team can't afford to wait to rounds 3-5 to fill HOLES. They need to go BPANP in rounds #1 and #2.

If Ireland (might have been the worst draft picker in history) didn't get awe struck with Jordan he could have moved up to get Fluker or he could have stayed put and got Pugh. If he had done either he would have saved THILL from about 7-15 sacks last year. That may have given them the one extra win that would have been a playoff birth.

Instead he jumped for Jordan. DE was not a HOLE. They had Wake, Vernon and Shelby.

Finally, if Ireland didn't jump for Jordan and could have stayed put and gotten last year's as BPA's who I am sure would become a fine player. But the team was swallowed up by the HOLES they allowed to exist. That BPA in round #1 would have been watching the sacks right along with us.

..MIT..Right On!! I agree. We all throw our opinions in the pot. Sometimes we even get one right.

Man, I am soooooo confused. Tampa Bay can also refer to the entire REGION in the Tampa area, including St. Petersburg and Clearwater.
Aha, so the Bucs were named after the region, not the city.
Now I can sleep peacefully tonight.

Mark,


Are you sure it isnt Dashi. It sounds(reads) a lot like him. I thought he made a comment about Tampa Bay yesterday. I could be wrong

What is this dude yelling about? THEY CAN'T HEAR YOU RAMSEY!!!

Imagine the blog without Mark in Moronto, Craig Moron(near Moronto), Dashi the 3rd person rambling idiot with potty mouth & Lady Go gogo.

Nice, right?

So everyone else on the Blog is you.

GO EAT A FAT DICK!! YOU F'ING F-A-G!!

Really manly hiding behind multiple names.

Take my F'ing name out your mouth. Tired of you little B'itches!! Dashi this, Dashi That!!

I never knew grown men can be such sissies!! Whining and complaining about the next man.

Grow the F*kk Up!!

And Dashi isn't angry. Just tired of the relentless Nonsense.

Your Father should've Whacked you off. And your Mom should have had an Abortion that Old Dirty B"tch!!

Hopefully this will get you off my dick and on with your life.

My Balls are getting Sore from you and your friend constantly tugging on them.

AJ..I'd like to take your feedback and consider it. But the reality is Fluker played for San Diego. Yes, the Giants OL may not have been good but I know one OL that was definitely worse.


To me "Tampa is the Armpit of Florida".

Posted by: Dashi | March 20, 2014 at 01:53 PM

To us you're the armpit of the blog.

PS..I'm only this name. I'm here everyday.

So, I take no offense to whoever you were rambling about on your last post.

RAMBLE RAMBLE RAMBLE & ALWAYS WRONG.

No surprise there!

Lets settle the QB discussion.

How about we trade Matt Moore for a pick in the draft and can only use it to draft the best QB left? LMAO

Yo Tampa. Go to google and put in Tampa Bay and you get the visit tampa bay website. Book a hotel or find a restaurant. Are your hotels and restaurants in the water? Of course not, they are adjacent to the bay just as the bucs are. I see from your name that you are having your period but take a Xanax and chill.

Ball tuggers. Nobody with those, likes to have them around. Maybe they are girls. Even so, don't tug on the balls lady.

I hate to admit this, but MIT, CraigM, Dashi, and some others are actually why I post here.
At the very least, they make the blog more interesting and have gotten into some cool/hot debates with me which I find refreshing.
Isn't that what this blog is for?

Craig, not making it say anything. Beadles avg cap hit $6M, Carroll $2M. Total $8M. Finnegan $5M, Smith $2.75M

There is a difference in term, yes. So we would have to commit to Beadles to two to three years instead of Finnegan to one and a bit years (since he would leave dead money if cut after next year)...

They thought enough of Beadles to make him a top pre free agency target .. but they cheaped on guaranteed money, not necesarily cap spending... and as a fan that doesn't make me happy.

And to the Tampa Home-O!!

You are right.

From now on they will be referred to as the "Tampa Gay Buccaneers".

Now you and your Butt Pirates can sit and twirl on a fat one with the other F-A-G who thinks he is "The Blog".

Giants OL was the worst in the NFL last season.

To us you're the armpit of the blog.

LOL!

Blog,

You still Tugging.

"take a Xanax and chill"

Can I get in on this too?

Deity@2:09,

Agreed.

So you enjoy being told you're wrong & an idiot? Submissive?

By the way, Finnegan costs the Dolphins $4.5m against the cap this year, not $3.5M

The same losers are in here in March lol.

Phins couldn't stop the run in 2013 because there LB'S were terrible. Now that they've lost their big NT and their LB's are still terrible...my 5-11 prediction may actually be a bit high.

The Ross/Dawn/Hickey/Philbin era will be the worst era in franchise history.

Expect multiple losing seasons in a row.

Ross is simply clueless as an owner. His organization is one of the worst in all of pro-sports.

I feel sorry for the no lifers.

It just hasn't sunk in yet.

2014 5-11
2015 4-12 Philbin fired, Dawn Aponte named Head Coach.
2016 0-16
2017 1-15 Dawn Aponte gets first win in week 16.


Blog,

You still Tugging.

Posted by: Dashi | March 20, 2014 at 02:11 PM

16 year old acting, 3rd person rambling idiot,

You still hopelessly clueless grasping at straws?

Watching a total jacka*s embarrass himself day in day out is fun to watch, I must say.

To us you're the armpit of the blog.

Posted by: The Blog | March 20, 2014 at 02:07 PM

To us the Dolphins are the armpit of the NFL.

The Finnegan signing is rather, befuddling.

Dashi licks his own balls.

Perhaps you didn't know this, well OBVIOUSLY, you didn't know this but, imitation is the highest form of flattery you schmuck!

JPAO, if Ireland had traded up for Fluker or selected Pugh in the first, i would've gone down to Miami and strangled him.

One looks like a 34 year old bryant McKinnie and the other was get beat like a rented mule.

They should've picked Lane Johnson though but I understand the Jordan pick.

JPAO, the good teams are the good teams because they select the best players.

If you have you fill them in with free agents - doesn't have to be expensive ones and probably shouldn't but it's like if you have a hole in your wall, you don't buy a new wall, you fill it in...

I ALREADY TOLD YOU THIS!!! THEY USE STUPID 'TAMPA BAY' BECAUSE THE FOOTBALL TEAM STARTED ALL THIS BACK IN 1976 WHEN THEIR STUPID IDIOT OWNER GAVE THEM THAT NAME!!!

BEFORE THAT NOBODY EVER EVER CALLED THIS AREA TAMPA BAY!! NEVER!!! IT WAS JUST TAMPA OR JUST S. PETERSBURG OR WHATEVER BUT NEVER TAMPA BAY!! TAMPA BAY IS WATER!!

YES IT CAN BE THE NAME FOR A WHOLE REGION BUT SO CAN SAN FRANCISCO BAY OR DELAWARE VALLEY! DO YOU THINK THE 49ERS SHOULD BE THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY 49ERS OR THERE SHOULD BE DELAWARE VALLEY EAGLES???

I AM RIGHT ABOUT THIS!! MANY HERE IN TAMPA AGREE AND ALSO GET MAD ABOUT IT!! DO NOT TELL ONE OF US YOU ARE COMING TO TAMPA BAY UNLESS YOU ARE GOING FISHING OR WE MIGHT PUNCH YOU IN THE FACE!!!

Hi there Dashi!!

The Blog, I don't care what people call me here as I've also dished out as much as I've received. This is all entertainment. Some people take this stuff way too seriously. None of this stuff should ever be taken personally.
If I ever met anyone personally on this blog who's insulted me, I'd buy them a beer and talk Phins all night long.

So Michael Sams pro day 40 yard dash has had huge discrepancies in times recorded. I wonder if the faster times were taken by someone who is gay....hmmm


No his boyfriend was bent over at the finish line....

Mass,

That is what we all come on here for. Well at least most of us. We like to stick to football. A good debate gets heated. Difference some of us know that debate isn't personal.

You have some real knowledgeable posters which you can learn a lot from. They know who they are and they can tell you Dashi shows them the upmost respect.

Then you have the Dashi trolls. Which can't wait til Dashi post so they can feverishly post their I hate Dashi post. Like Dashi took their lunch money everyday and now they want it back.

Notice how I suggested a better blog would include the disappearance of several other names but, the only 1 to comment was the 3rd person rambling idiot known as dashe.

Too sensitive to be a "man". Then again, 16 years old isn't really old enough to be considered a man.

His constant talk of his genitals always in & around another mans oral cavity is pretty disturbing.

Tampa, you seem a little nutty but you actually have me agreeing with you. Tampa Bay IS pretty stupid!

Still Tugging.

I wait for you to post to see if you'll even finally say something smart.

Another miss with this last one. Better luck next time kid.

Smith's deal is for only $500k guaranteed TOTAL, ahha. IF they can turn this guy into even an average starter it would be the greatest signing in NFL history value wise. 5th round picks will count for more guaranteed money against the cap.

Still Tugging


Still Tugging.

Still guessing.

Face it kid, you're a mental midget inferior to people of even limited intelligence.

Quit while you're way behind.

Still clueless

That one guy who owns a house boat on Tampa Bay is very angry with TAMPA right now...

Dooshy, tell us again what a great TE Michael Egnew is. LMFAO!!

Dashi licks his own balls.

Posted by: Dashi | March 20, 2014 at 02:15 PM

---------------------------------------------

As you see Dashi this can be true. With the amount of Tugging that goes on here Dashi can throw his balls over his shoulder if he wants.

Hi Dooshe

Now it feels more like a Yank instead of a Tug.

But you still have a firm grip on them.

Who all wants to go to Tampa Bay and see the Tampa Bay rays home opener on the 31st? We could stay overnight in Tampa Bay and see the Tampa Bay lightning on the 1st. What fun it is to go to Tampa Bay.

Does the 16 year old rambling imbocile realize the difference between someone tugging on his so called pebbles vs. making a completely mockery of his entire existence?

Apparently not!

Dashi + Home = Poster boards for Abstinence

Oh no! I bought a plane ticket to Tampa Bay and the plane is headed right into the ocean! What was I thinking?

Dashi, your vagina is loose enough to yank.

C'mon son .

Your Anger is Showing.

And I will like my Balls back, Please.

re: this crapping on the Jordan pick, he's not the guy I would've picked, but he had a lot of merit being drafted there. now, a lot of people are saying he'sa luxury pick,... not really. The team has a hole at OLB ... he could play there or if they insist he's a DE - which i don't see then the move to make now is to trade Wake if you get good value. A 2nd pick? I'd do it in a second. Could use that pick to pick another o lineman or RB and greatly improve the team depth and relieve the salary cap a lot.

Either way, Jordan has to be an every down player this year... up to the team to figure out the course of action. He's definitely good enough to be a starter.

Still no witt or creativity.

Just an overmatched, loose 16 year old trying to act as if his existence on this blog is worth more than a mountain of peanut shells.

Sad sad sad

RT @Kyle_Feldscher: Taylor Lewan will be arraigned on 3 charges stemming from a Dec. 1 assault in Ann Arbor.

We can forget about this guy..

Dashi, your vagina is loose enough to yank.

Try harder. That wasn't funny. (And don't answer with some cornball response, it wasn't meant to be funny)

Stick to your blinded anger. Cause you are definitely not a Comedian, Son.

Give up clown. I own you here & you know it.

You can have your with YG when he shows up. But, as you've learned today, he's not in my league.
