INDIANAPOLIS — Few news bombshells are being dropped inside the NFL Scouting Combine media center. But one of the more interesting interview sessions Thursday was with Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland, who at least offered a few morsels to digest.
One was when he was asked about his commitment to QB Chad Henne, the Dolphins’ de facto starter.
“Right now, he’s the guy on our football team we have to be committed to, because he’s the only one we have right now other than Tom Brandstater and (potentially) Tyler Thigpen,” Ireland said. “We’re committed to him right now, and then after that, we’ll see what happens.”
That could be interpreted several ways, but it hardly seems to qualify as an endorsement from Ireland, who also touched on the difficulty on evaluating the quarterbacks in the current draft because of the variables involving the spread offense in college football.
“It’s obviously a position we’re going to look hard at,” Ireland added.
The Dolphins pick at No. 15 in the first round.
