New Deal for Mueller

Things just keep getting better for General Manager Randy Mueller. First, he was given control of personnel decisions after Nick Saban left for Alabama, and now he has been signed to a two-year contract extension.

Mueller's deal was set to expire in June of 2008, meaning his new contract will take him through 2010.

"Randy is one of the most respected general managers in the NFL, and we value the work that he has done here the past two years," said Dolphins president Bryan Wiedmeier. "We believe that with this extension, coupled with the addition of Cam Cameron as head coach, our franchise is headed in the right direction."

Mueller joined the Dolphins as GM in June 2005, but had little power when Saban was the coach because it was Saban who made all the final personnel decisions.

The Dolphins decided to change that blueprint when they hired Cam Cameron this offseason to replace Saban.

"I'm excited to be able to continue in my role with an organization that has such a great tradition," Mueller said. "I want to thank Mr. (Wayne) Huizenga and Bryan Wiedmeier for making this happen, and feel that with the people we have in place, we have the opportunity to achieve a great deal of success here."
