Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, October 18, 2020. The Dolphins were docked a first-round pick in 2023 and a third-rounder in 2024 and owner Stephen Ross was suspended through mid-October and fined $1.5 million for damage to the integrity of the game, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Tuesday. The penalties largely surround the Dolphins flirtation with quarterback Tom Brady not only before the 2021 season when Brady was a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but extending all the way back to the 2019-20 season when he was with the New England Patriots.

According to Ben Fischer of Sports Business Journal, Miami Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross has begun taking steps to keep ownership of the franchise within his family. Ross reportedly intends to change the succession plan from limited partner Bruce Beal to his daughter, Jennifer Ross. Beal is claimed to be seeking approval to ascend to controlling owner, but the process would halt if Ross’s plans for succession go through.

Ross and Beal were both punished by the National Football League for alleged tampering after the league finished its investigation into Brian Flores’ tampering allegations. Ross was relieved of all of his current committee assignments, which included the finance, media, international and legalized sports gambling committees. Beal was fined $500,000 and is prohibited from attending any league meetings through the end of the 2022 season. The punishment also included the Dolphins organization losing its 2023 1st-round pick and 2024 3rd-round pick.
