Between Rams And Dolphins For Jeff Fisher, Per ESPN Report

New, comments

The NFL rumor mill is in full swing, not even 24 hours after teams began cleaning house. For days Jeff Fisher has been the most talked about potential coaching candidate for the St. Louis Rams. This afternoon, John Clayton from ESPN said that it's between the Miami Dolphins and the Rams for Fisher.

According to Clayton, each team offers something a little different for Fisher. Miami may offer more money, but the Rams have an established quarterback in Sam Bradford. That factor, according to Clayton, makes St. Louis a more attractive destination. Something else at play is that Fisher would likely have some say in who the Rams hire to replace GM Billy Devaney. Miami already has a GM in place, Jeff Ireland.

Remember, this is all speculation. Kevin Demoff very plainly denied rumors that the Rams had an interview set up with Jeff Fisher as of Monday as well as the ongoing chatter about Fisher as a candidate that started before the season even ended. What Demoff did not deny is that Fisher is someone the team will look at to determine if he's the right fit.

No rumor about it, Fisher did interview with the Dolphins on Monday. I suspect Fisher will be conducting more interviews this week. Teams may want to move fast since Fisher figures to be one of the more popular candidates.
