UPDATE: 3: Per the Miami Herald, Tony Sparano threatened to quit this afternoon, shortly before the scheduled “media briefing”. That has since been rescheduled for noon tomorrow. It’s likely that the two sides, and this is only my personal speculation, will talk more through this evening and then Sparano will “sleep” on his decision.
UPDATE: 2: ESPN is reporting that Jim Harbaugh has signed a 5 year 25 million dollar deal with the 49ers. It has also been reported by David Neal that Stephen Ross was supposed to meet with former Browns HC Eric Mangini to “pick his brain about the division rivals”. He cancelled it today. And the jokes….keep…rolling….in.
UPDATE: O.k. this one is not my fault. The Dolphins have postponed the press conference. What the hell is going on down there?
The Miami Dolphins have called for a 4:45 PM news briefing, where local media are expecting to hear that Tony Sparano has agreed to an extension. Chris Mortensen of ESPN and Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald have both reported that Sparano and Stephen Ross have been negotiating a “contract adjustment”. No word on anyone else, Ireland or Peterson, being at that meeting.
Stay tuned, looks like closure is on it’s way.
