The Miami Dolphins have a bright future on the football field, but they may have to wait a little longer to get to that point.
According to the Associated Press, Miami’s team owner Bill Polian announced on Thursday that the Dolphins have reached an agreement with the NFL’s commissioner to move to the next level.
Miami will play the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, March 5, and then host the New England Patriots on Monday, March 6.
The Miami Dolphins and the NFL have reached a contract extension, but it’s unknown whether or not the deal will be ratified by the NFL.
Miami and the league have a history of cooperation, and the Dolphins won the Superbowl in 2010.
But Polian told the AP that negotiations over the extension have been difficult, and that he would be willing to let the Dolphins move if a deal was done quickly.
“There’s a lot of things that have to happen, and we have to move fast,” Polian said.
“I’m not going to say I’ve gotten everything done, but I’ve been pretty consistent that we have an agreement, so I don’t think there’s a question of getting everything done.”
