We still are in wait-and-see mode when it comes to whether the Miami Dolphins will retain GM Jeff Ireland. Whoever is working in that general manager role in 2014 will have to decide what to do with a pair of underachieving linebackers in Dannell Ellerbe and Philip Wheeler, both of whom were signed last offseason. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald suggests that it's possible that the Fins could release them, though doing so could be tough.
