This happened under Sparano & Ireland in 2010. Merling was arrested for beating his then pregnant wife. He immediately returned to practice and the Prosecutors dropped charges. The Phins security department had a special relationship with Broward County Sheriffs' Department, even employing 6 of their officers. A quote from the New York Times Article.........

"The special treatment of Mr. Merling caught the attention of the Broward County sheriff at the time, Al Lamberti, who initiated the internal affairs inquiry.

In a recent phone interview, Mr. Lamberti said that deputies who were caught up in the glamour of a big-time sports franchise could lose sight of their allegiances.

“In some of these cases, my opinion is that they were more loyal to the Dolphins than they were to the agency,” he said. “To me, that’s where the line was crossed.”

Merling is out of the NFL. He was cut by the Redskins early this year.

Well, Bill Parcells first draft in 2008 ended up being a real crapper. Jake Long was overall #1, but injuries hurt a very good left tackle. He then drafted Phillip Merling and Chad Henne in the second round. Kendall Landford was taken in the 3rd round and ended up being a good player. He is with the Rams now.

As former FB Rob Konrad once said, "The organization has struggled from a personnel standpoint over the years. For instance, they drafted me in the second round. . . . You don't recover from those types of mistakes." - Rob Konrad on the team's questionable draft picks from 1998-2003
