Eric DeCosta linked to Dolphins GM job, doesn't appear to be going anywhere

It's deja vu, once again.

Each offseason, Eric DeCosta's name is floated out as being in contention for an open general manager position.

And each year, the Ravens' assistant general manager expresses no interest in leaving Baltimore. It looks like nothing's changed in 2014.

Early Friday morning, DeCosta's name was linked to a report from the Miami Herald for their open general manager position. Who wouldn't want DeCosta? He's earned a reputation of being able to identify talent, especially in the college ranks, and seemingly lives for each NFL draft.

But DeCosta's been with the Ravens since their arrival in 1996. And it looks like he has no desire to leave once again. The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reported that DeCosta's contract and the ability to be Ozzie Newsome's eventual successor will likely keep him in Charm City.


The Carroll County Times' Matt Zenitz took it a step further, refuting the report that the Dolphins have reached out to DeCosta himself.


So Ravens fans, there's no reason to panic. It's deja vu once again. Each year, DeCosta's name comes up for an open GM position. And each year, he turns it down.

At this rate, it would take some unforeseen circumstance to take DeCosta away from Baltimore.
