Earlier this week at the start of the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, New Orleans Saints assistant general manager Jeff Ireland reiterated his desire to once again be a GM in the NFL but said he is not in a rush to do so and is fully committed to helping the organization win another Super Bowl.

Ireland already has experience doing so, sitting in the top chair with the Miami Dolphins from 2008-13, but that run ended with his ouster after one playoff and winning season on South Beach during that time.

Ireland said there were a host of things he would do differently now than when he was with the Dolphins.

"I know when I focus on one thing or a couple things, that's what I'm really good at," he said. "If I ever get the opportunity to be that again, I'm going to do a better job of delegating other things to other people where I can (keep) my focus on a couple different things that I know I'm good at."

One of the things Ireland has been really good at during his three years in New Orleans has been his scouting of collegiate draft prospects. This week at the Combine, he accepted an award on behalf of the team for having the best draft, which included bringing in the future Associated Press Offensive and Defensive Rookies of the Year in Alvin Kamara and Marshon Lattimore, respectively.
