Miami Dolphins fined for contact with Tom Brady

Miami Dolphins fined for contact with Tom Brady

The National Football League (NFL) has severely punished the Miami Dolphins, owner Stephen Ross and vice president Bruce Bell. The reason is the forbidden contact with star quarterback Tom Brady and the head coach of the New Orleans Saints, Sean Payton.

Ross was fined $1.5 million and suspended until October 17. The Dolphins also lost their first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and their third-round pick in 2024.

According to the NBA, Dolphins contacted Brady and Payton between 2019 and 2022, even though they were under contract with other teams. This is not allowed in the NFL. The former US attorney general and a law firm had been investigating the case against billionaire Ross for more than six months. “Investigators have identified violations of unprecedented scope and severity,” NFL President Robert Goodell said in a statement on Tuesday.

At the time of the first contact, Brady was with the New England Patriots in 2019 before joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020. Along with Ross, Bill was fined $500,000. Ross was acquitted of another charge. He is said to have urged then-Dolphin coach Brian Flores to intentionally lose matches for money during the 2019 season. This should improve the team’s 2020 draft position position. Investigators have been unable to confirm this. The indictment was brought by Flores.
