Prospective Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores has multiple difficult decisions to make when he finally joins the team next week or in three weeks when the New England are eliminated from the NFL playoffs or are finished playing in the Super Bowl.
The AFC Championship game winner between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs will face the winner of the NFC title game between the New Orlenas Saints and Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta on Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019.
Jonathan Martin, who spent two seasons with the Miami Dolphins, will have to stand trial after making a threatening Instagram post last year. Former teammates Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey were both named.

Miami Dolphins fans have been weighing the idea of adding Nick Foles, among others, to lift the talent level for the team. But adding a good quarterback such as Foles does not fit under the ‘new approach’ as outlined by owner Stephen Ross
The Miami Dolphins announced a ‘new approach’ for building their team days ago that suggests taking long approach, but the team might be tempted to abandon that with Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray entering the NFL draft.

While the Miami Dolphins have not been able to hire their proposed head coach because the New England Patriots advanced in the playoffs, their philosophy for the personnel department is becoming clearer.
