The Dolphins will interview Brian Xanders for their general manager vacancy.
Xanders was the Broncos GM from 2009-12, playing a major role in putting together one of the league's best rosters. In the 2010 and 2011 drafts, he landed the likes of Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker and Von Miller. Xanders parted ways with the Broncos after last season, signing on in Detroit as the senior personnel director and crushing another draft -- this time stealing guys like Larry Warford late and signing Joseph Fauria as a UDFA. Xanders would be a coup for the Fins as they replace Jeff Ireland.


I like this guys' draft style

I have a feeling that this is the best guy for the job but we won't hire him. His draft classes from 2009-2012 have 5th rounders who are contributing to this team now even with all the injuries the Broncos have suffered the backups (Xanders picks) stepped up and played well.

Great if we can convince him to come...............he's going to demand to be in charge. Shame if keeping Philbin is the deal breaker.

Yeah, guys who take QBs that can't throw in the first round are awesome!

Well, its a heck of a coincidence that Tebow followed McDaniels to NE once released from his contract. Perhaps McDaniels did some convincing in both places.

Sounds like this guy assembled some good talent in Denver and then had a pretty good draft in Detroit this past year.

I agree Jammer. Even is he picked a "bust" he has picked more playmakers than busts. Hell, Ireland picked an entire bust in '13.
