Miami Dolphins general manager Chris Grier may see the fruits of his labor materialize soon.
Since he took over the role, the team has gone to the playoffs only once and had three losing seasons after that stint.
But for back-to-back seasons, the Dolphins have had winning records despite missing the postseason.
This could be the start of an era wherein the Dolphins will become permanent playoff fixtures.
If that’s the case, the organization will extend Grier’s contract.
As he continues to improve the Dolphins’ championship hopes, his brother hopes to do the same with the San Jose Sharks.

Chris added, “Mike will bring his work ethic and passion every day to the job. Mike understands the game with intelligence, experience, and knowledge to succeed as a GM.”
