Dolphins Cry Foul Over Jeff Fisher’s Decision to Spurn Them For Rams

On Friday, Jeff Fisher chose to coach the Rams over the Dolphins. According to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, a Dolphins source tweeted, “Jeff Fisher used us.” Fisher had two teams fighting for his services, and if he happened to use one team to squeeze a better offer out of another team, then that’s how it goes.

If a free agent has two teams bidding on his services, he can use that to his advantage. If the Dolphins want to sign a player who they know has no one else bidding for his services, they can use that as leverage, too. Jay Glazer said Thursday that Fisher was “truly torn” on the decision, and Adam Schefter said that Fisher’s interest in the Dolphins was “100 percent not a leverage play.”

    I though he would go with the Colts since Luck is probably better than Bradford who can’t seem to stay healthy, and he knows the Colts division better. But he could turn the Rams around.
