Miami's new executive vice president of football operations, Bill Parcells, said on Friday he wants to bring in dedicated players to the onetime NFL power. Speaking in an interview on ESPN Radio Primetime, Parcells said he intends to look to draft players marked by a deep "passion for football" for the team that has lost 13 out of 14 games. "If football is not their most important thing to them other than their immediate family, then I'm probably not going to be interested in them," Parcells said Friday. "That's the why I am. And I want people around me that are like that." The Dolphins likely will have the No. 1 pick in next year's draft, and the franchise is in the midst of its longest postseason drought, six years and counting. Even before Parcells' hiring, Miami's roster already seemed certain for an offseason overhaul.
