Written by ASAPWylie

Six months ago former Dolphins Head Coach Brian Flores accused team owner Stephen Ross of bribing him to lose games for a better draft position. Now Tuesday the NFL has stripped Miami of its 2023 First Round Pick and a 2024 Third Round Pick. Team owner Stephen Ross as also been fined $1.5 Million and suspended through Oct. 17th.

A league investigation found Ross at least hinted at prioritizing draft picks over a winning record in 2019, and that he had repeated communication’s with both Tom Brady and Sean Payton while trying to recruit big names to his team.

The NFL investigation found that Ross and the Dolphins illegally contacted Don Yee, the agent for Payton, in January while the Saints Head Coach was still employed by New Orleans.

While serving his suspension, Ross is not permitted to be present at the Dolphins’ facility or represent the club at any team or NFL event. He is also prohibited from attending any league meetings prior to the annual NFL owners meeting in 2023, or any league committee communications. Bruce Beal, the Dolphins’ vice chairman, has also been barred from attending any league meetings for the remainder of the 2022 season, and fined $500,000.
