    That said, while he's in Jupiter, FL over the weekend, it wouldn't be a shocker if Stephen Ross puts on a full court press while he's in town.
    I thought after Bisciotti gave him his last raise, there was a clause in his contract that he couldn't interview. Like
    Eugene Monroe, DeCosta's wife is from Baltimore.

    Re: DeCosta Contacted to Interview for Dolphins GM

    Hmmm... would I rather work for Ross or Bisciotti?

    No way would DeCosta be dumb enough to make that move.

    The 9ers are already trying to extend him, and he's got two more years left. I have a really hard time imagining a scenario where Jim would leave SF for Miami.

    I think he was directing that comment to the coaches, not Ozzie.

    Ozzie has been in worse shape than this past season and he was still retained. One season (or a few strung together) isn't going to force his ouster.

    He has a job for as long as he wants it.

    Apparently, from what I've read Jim Harbaugh and Trent Baalke are in a power struggle. Sounds like Jim wants more control.

    I would tend to agree, but just to play devil's advocate, what if Bisciotti is upset about giving his QB a $120M contract, but then not getting sufficient offensive weapons or OL protection for that investment?

    Those are two rather positive articles. Not sure I see this as a power struggle. Rather, two strong guys who clash sometimes.

    I'm willing to bet Harbs and Ozzie have similar disagreements.

    I don't think this season was bad for Ozzie. A couple FA busts but the draft class will show up big down the road.

    I think he should take the job.

    Everybody knows that with Flacco's salary being so huge we can't afford any more players. Everybody knows that's why we sucked this year. So why should a talented guy like Mr. DeCosta stick around if he can't sign anybody good?

    EVen if Eric DeCosta was free to go wherever he pleased, there is zero chance that he would go to the Dolphins job...it's a train wreck.

    Dawn Aponte is the Executive Vice President of Football Administration, and once upon a time she reported to Ireland (outgoing GM). She was undermining Ireland by reporting to Coach Philbin about what a poor job the GM thought he was doing. Ireland was on the verge of firing her, then Ross (the owner) promoted Aponte, doubled her salary, and made it so that she was reporting to Philbin (whom she had a significant hand in hiring) instead.

    Whomever takes that GM job is walking into a power struggle...no chance that it will be DeCosta.

    Ravens asst GM Eric DeCosta has no interest in the Miami job. He's the GM-in-waiting at one of the best franchises in football.

    Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said 20 months ago that team restructured Eric DeCosta's contract where he's "off the market for a few years."
