Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley Dawn Aponte just left the team's HQ.

Adam Beasley @AdamHBeasley One theory that makes sense: the fact that Aponte feels good enough to leave while everyone else is in the building indicates she's safe.

What do we know about her? She seems like the hidden hand with the dagger. I've read that she is the tough negotiator that gives the Dolphins their reputation of not being player friendly. The Dolphins have certainly done a better job of managing the cap and she is supposedly a big part of that.

She also supposedly helps Philbin with his speeches.

What else do we know? Does she know how to evaluate talent? Is she going to develop into a major player in the front office now?

Word is she has no player talent evaluation experience.

Only other thing I read is she is up for a major executive job with the NFL.

If she were made GM she'd need some serious assistance from someone who recognizes how to buy the groceries.

Ross might think she is the right guy for the job.

Omg... she's a business exec not a football manager. If Ross is talking to her it's about Ireland and/or money. She will NOT be a GM regardless of news blah blah blah. She will however, as Sr VP of Football Ops hire the next ooe.

I assumed she was Ross's hiring to begin with...

She was an executive with Clevland in 2009 when Mangini was the HC just incase anyone is following the rumor mills...

Quote:
3. Aponte: Do not underestimate her ability to work the system and climb the ladder. She came to the Dolphins as a cap specialist and has ascended to Executive VP of Football Administration. She also bonded with coach Joe Philbin and is one of if not his primary advisor. One of her known goals is to be an NFL general manager. If Ireland is dismissed, she will likely want the job. And although she has zero experience in personnel evaluation, she'll argue she can do the job with the assistance of a savvy talent evaluator at her side -- someone like Gaine. Aponte's name is also being floated around the league office for a possible position there. She worked at the league office for three years. Before that she worked for the Cleveland Browns for a year and the New York Jets for 15 years. She is close with, you guessed it, Mangini -- the former head coach in Cleveland and the Jets.

Scratching my head....I have heard she is actually very smart with the negotiations and salary cap. I too would like to know why you want her fired more than anything. What did she do that we don't know about?

I thought she made a fool of herself negotiating T-hills contract on hard knocks....


This smells bad...The gm's job is player evaluation and we are going to have one that knows nothing about it?

PR disaster.
