Pittsburgh Steelers Safety Ryan Clark Bashes Miami Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland on Twitter
For those of you wondering why the Miami Dolphins can't seem to land marquee free agents anymore, Steelers safety Ryan Clark offered an explanation on Twitter.
On Sunday night, Clark reminisced about the 2009 offseason, when he was a free agent and the Dolphins brought him down for a visit.
Clark would've been a monumental addition to Miami's defense—which did and still does lack a reliable free safety—but he abruptly re-signed with the Steelers after his visit with the 'Fins. Now, he's unveiling the reasoning behind his decision: Jeff Ireland.
Here are the highlights of Clark's tweets:
In response to a Tweet about free agents dodging Miami: "No one [wants to go there]! To believe I almost went there but it was easy decision not to"
Referring to Jeff Ireland: "It's my honest opinion. Not a good guy making decision."
He even reminded everybody that "the Dolphins offered me more $$."
This is the second time a player has openly bashed Jeff Ireland. Last time, it was Channing Crowder. And let's not forget about the time he asked Dez Bryant if his mother was a prostitute, or the time he stabbed Tony Sparano in the back by accompanying Stephen Ross on his meeting with Jim Harbaugh last year.
In light of Miami's disappointing offseason, Jeff Ireland was already on the hot seat. Now, he's going to need to work miracles to keep his job after next season.
Ireland is slowly becoming the symbol of ineptitude that is currently marring this organization. Hopefully he'll either salvage himself with some great personnel moves or Stephen Ross will fire him.
Too bad the Dolphins didn't take my advice.
