PALM BEACH - Welcome to The Breakers for the 2012 NFL Meetings!
A few things to look out for on the first day:
Saints-a-palooza: Recently suspended New Orleans head coach Sean Payton is here, as is GM Mickey Loomis, who's gone half of this coming season due to the bounty scandal. Owner Tom Benson is en route, rumor is he's arriving on a yacht. There's nothing circus-y about that. We may get Payton's first non-written comments about his unprecedented punishment.
Stephen Ross: The embattled Dolphins owner is tabbed to speak at “lunchtime” according to the team. There are a plethora of angles to take, like: is the team rebuilding? What's the state of the franchise? Are you concerned about your increading un-popularity? Why the loyalty to Jeff Ireland? Has this off-season been a disappointment?
Ireland: It's imperative to get a feel about where he stands from a respect standpoint across the league. Should get a good impression from people at the meetings.
Will continue to update.
