MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami Dolphins signed multiple players in the offseason, but a signing that went way under the radar could end up being one of the more important ones owner Stephen Ross made in 2013.

According to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald, the Dolphins quietly gave general manager Jeff Ireland a one-year contract extension through the 2014 season. Ireland has been at the center of fan angst in recent years, but owner Stephen Ross has stood by him and let him build his team.

The results this year are obvious as the team has run out to a 3-0 record to start the season. Ireland’s past few drafts, combined with a few offseasons of free agent signings have a team that is exciting on the field and has fans excited about the team’s potential.

But Ireland has his work cut out for him after the 2013 season. Multiple key Dolphins players will be unrestricted free agents in 2014 including: Randy Starks, Paul Soliai, Richie Incognito, Brent Grimes, Chris Clemons, Dustin Keller, and John Jerry.

The team also will have to deal with an astronomical cap hit for Mike Wallace of $17.25 million for the 2014 season.

It will some maneuvering on the part of Ireland and the front office to keep players most notably either Starks or Soliai and possibly Grimes and Jerry.
