Miami Dolphins: Today is a big day for the Miami Dolphins. By the end of it, they will know if Ron Wolf will join them in a consulting role and they will also identify their leading general manager candidate. Owner Wayne Huizenga, club president Eddie Jones and club executive VP Bryan Wiedmeier met Sunday for nearly two hours to discuss the seven candidates interviewed since coach Dave Wannstedt's responsibilities as general manger were stripped nearly two weeks ago. ''We all had general agreements about the candidates but definitely not a consensus pick,'' Jones told the Miami Herald. "I want to sleep on it. I think we all do. It will allow us [Monday] morning to get all the facts up, get back with Mr. Huizenga and make a decision.'' The club has interviewed Tampa Bay's Tim Ruskell, Seattle's VP of football operations Ted Thompson, Baltimore's Phil Savage, Jerry Reese of the Giants, their own Rick Spielman, former receiver Paul Warfield and former Saints GM Randy Mueller. The favorite appears to be Thompson, who is endorsed by Wolf.
Green Bay Packers: P Josh Bidwell will become an unrestricted free agent in March and the club has a decision to make on whether or not he'll remain in Green Bay. To increase their options, P Travis Dorsch was signed over the weekend. Dorsch (6'1", 221) was a highly-touted prospect and was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the fourth round of the 2002 draft. But in his only game as a rookie he kicked two line-drive punts that were returned for touchdowns. But he still has potential. "He can do both, punt and kick off," director of pro personnel Reggie McKenzie told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Strong leg. His deal is he hasn't done it and he's so erratic. If we can get the guy to calm down and be more consistent, you might have something there."
