The Browns have interviewed ex-Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey for their VP of player personnel vacancy.
The Dolphins backed into Hickey as their general manager in 2014, but he had a successful first year on the job. He was then promptly demoted for Mike Tannenbaum before being unceremoniously fired earlier this month. Hickey would be an interesting hire for the Browns' drastically remade front office. Ex-Eagles director of pro personnel Rick Mueller is also in the running. Jan 21 - 6:52 PM

Dolphins fired GM Dennis Hickey.

The Dolphins are cleaning house after firing Joe Philbin in-season. Hickey lasted only two years in Miami, with Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Jay Ajayi among his notable draft picks. The Dolphins are expected to stay in-house at GM. Director of college scouting Chris Grier is the favorite to replace Hickey. Mike Tannenbaum remains the most powerful presence in Miami's front office.

Pro Football Talk reports Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey is "definitely out."

Director of college scouting Chris Grier is expected to be promoted to GM. The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports there is a chance Hickey is reassigned rather than fired. No matter what the team decides to do with the position, V.P. of football operations Mike Tannenbaum will continue to serve as the de facto GM.

Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey will "continue to lead the personnel and scouting departments," and retain final say over the 53-man roster following the hiring of Mike Tannenbaum as executive V.P. of football operations.

At least, that's what the Dolphins are claiming. Hickey will report directly to Tannenbaum, and should immediately be considered on the hot seat. It's a bizarre situation, as Hickey did a much better job in 2014 than Tannenbaum did for the majority of his Jets tenure. It's the kind of mess Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has specialized in making. For whatever reason, coach Joe Philbin will continue to report directly to Ross, and not Hickey or Tannenbaum. Miami's power structure is a corn maze in the middle of a cave system.

The Dolphins will retain GM Dennis Hickey for 2015.

It's not a surprise, as owner Stephen Ross has already said that coach Joe Philbin will be back, and Hickey had a solid first year on the job. We don't understand Ross so quickly and publicly committing to Philbin, but Hickey's vote of confidence was earned.

New Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey insists the team's power structure is "completely clear," and that he'll "be in charge" of the 53-man roster.

That's not the belief in league circles, but it's Hickey's story, and he's sticking to it. Miami's Plan Z, Hickey will obviously have significant influence over the 53-man roster, but it's widely believed the buck stops at coach Joe Philbin. It's a baffling arrangement considering Philbin has excelled at very little during his two years as head coach. Perhaps the Dolphins have lucked into a great hire with Hickey, but more than likely, their current arrangement assures another 2-3 years of unnecessary mediocrity.

The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley has been "told" that "several" Dolphins players are privately expressing a desire that they "want out of this situation" following Sunday's hire of new GM Dennis Hickey.

Hickey, as noted previously, was on the outs in Tampa Bay's front office and is an obvious fallback hire after owner Stephen Ross whiffed on at least three preferred GM candidates. The situation in Miami has become toxic, with Hickey set to operate as a puppet below coach Joe Philbin, who maintains control of the 53-man roster. Ross needs to blow this thing up, but his hands are tied due to his commitment to Philbin. It's only January, and already looking as though the Dolphins are headed for another really long year.

The Miami Herald reports new Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey "was going to be fired" as Bucs director of player personnel, "probably after the draft."

The Buccaneers recently hired Jason Licht as GM, and he was going to get his own guys in Tampa Bay's front office. Still, it's a reminder of the dysfunctional situation in Miami. The Fins whiffed on virtually every "name" GM candidate owner Stephen Ross so much as considered. They wound up essentially doing Tampa Bay a favor by allowing the Bucs to get out of Hickey's guaranteed contract. We wouldn't be surprised if Hickey goes one-and-done in Miami.

Dolphins hired ex-Bucs director of player personnel Dennis Hickey as general manager.

Titans VP Lake Dawson turned down the job Sunday, joining Cleveland's Ray Farmer and New England's Nick Caserio as candidates who spurned the Dolphins. Hickey spent the past 18 seasons in Tampa Bay's front office and was never interviewed for the GM opening there. He has a background in college scouting and was promoted to director of player personnel in 2011. It's unclear how much power Hickey will have in Miami. The structure in South Beach is awfully confusing. Hickey, coach Joe Philbin, and executive Dawn Aponte all apparently will have an equal voice with owner Stephen Ross. Aponte is the team's contract negotiator and salary-cap guru. Hickey just gets the GM title. To be perfectly frank, we're not familiar enough with Hickey to evaluate this hire, good or bad. It's possible Ross will tie Hickey's fate to lame-duck coach Philbin's, and ax both after the season if Miami doesn't make playoffs.
