I'm a Dolphin Fan and I just happened to come across there GM track record and I didn't relize it was as solid as it is. I meen man some solid drafts and trades. Mirer and Williams are top notch

http://bremertonians.blogspot.com/2005/01/...dy-mueller.html

Here’s his resume from 1995-1998 as Seahawks VP (I’m not counting 1999 because his role was diminished) and 2000-2002 as New Orleans Saints general manager (he was fired by the Saints in May 2002, but still made moves for the 2002 season up until his firing).

1995 (8-8, missed playoffs)

WR Joey Galloway (drafted 1st round)

TE Christian Fauria (drafted 2nd round)

Galloway spent 5 seasons in Seattle, while Fauria was in town until going to New England in 2003. Fauria won a Super Bowl ring with the Patriots in his first season (2003).

1996 (7-9, missed playoffs)

OG Pete Kendall (drafted 1st round)

CB Fred Thomas (d2)

DE Phillip Daniels (d4)

QB Jon Kitna (undrafted free agent)

S Darryl Williams (free agent, signed from Cincinnati)

---Kendall signed with Arizona before the 2001 season. Thomas signed with the Saints in 2001, when Mueller was in New Orleans. Daniels bolted for Chicago in 2000 and is currently in Washington. Kitna became the full-time starter in 1999, when the Seahawks won the AFC West in Holmgren’s first season at the helm. He is now in Cincinnati as a backup to Carson Palmer.

Williams was a Pro Bowler in 1997, the same year when he laid out Raiders tight end Rickey Dudley in the Kingdome. If only I could find a pic of that hit.

1997 (8-8, missed playoffs)

Traded QB Rick Mirer & 4th round pick to Chicago for 1997 1st round pick (11th overall)

CB Shawn Springs (drafted 1st round #3)

OT Walter Jones (drafted 1st round #6)

TE Itula Mili (drafted 6th round)

LB Chad Brown (free agent, signed from Pittsburgh)

1997 1st round pick (11th overall) and multiple picks traded to Atlanta for 1997 1st round pick (3rd overall) --- Shawn Springs

Traded 1st round pick (12th overall) and 3rd round pick to Tampa Bay for 1997 1st round pick (6th overall) --- Walter Jones

---Springs is now in Washington. Jones has been one of the best offensive linemen in football, but will be a free agent this offseason, as will Mili. Brown was signed to a 6-year, $24 million dollar deal by the Seahawks in February 1997 and is still with the team.

1998 (8-8, missed playoffs)

LB Anthony Simmons (drafted 1st round #15)

OT Todd Weiner (drafted 2nd round)

RB Ahman Green (drafted 3rd round)

RB Ricky Watters (free agent, signed from Philadelphia)

P Jeff Feagles (free agent, signed from Arizona)

---Simmons is currently still with the Seahawks. Weiner is in Atlanta, as his Falcons will play in the NFC Championship Game next Sunday. Green spent 2 seasons in Seattle before being traded to Green Bay in 2000 for Fred Vinson.

Watters spent his final years in Seattle (1998-2001). Feagles punted for the Seahawks until leaving in 2003 for the New York Giants.

2000 (10-6, won NFC West)

DE Darren Howard (drafted 2nd round)

DT Norman Hand (free agent)

WR Joe Horn (free agent)

QB Jeff Blake (free agent)

CB Fred Thomas (free agent, former Seahawk)

Acquired QB Aaron Brooks from Green Bay for 3rd round pick

Jim Haslett (head coach)

---The Saints did not have a 1st round pick in 2000, due to the Ricky Williams trade the organization had made the year before. Howard has been one of the best defensive ends in football over the past 5 seasons. Hand was a member of the 2003 Seahawks wild-card team. Horn is the Saints’ top receiver. Blake played for the Saints during the 2000 season before getting hurt, forcing the Saints to play Brooks, a relative unknown out of Virginia.

The Saints would finish 10-6 in 2000, winning the NFC West. They also won their first playoff game in franchise history in 2000, defeating St. Louis.

2001 (7-9, missed playoffs)

RB Deuce McAllister (drafted 1st round. 23rd overall)

S Jay Bellamy (free agent)

KR/PR Michael Lewis (free agent)

TE Boo Williams (undrafted free agent)

---Drafting McAllister was Mueller’s boldest move as an NFL executive. Ricky Williams was still on the roster, but Mueller felt that McAllister was the best player available when it was the Saints’ turn to pick in the 2001 1st round.

Bellamy signed with the Saints after spending the first 7 seasons of his career in Seattle. Lewis was signed in 2001. He was a beer truck driver before being signed by the Saints. He is one of the better return men in football. Williams was an undrafted free agent from Arkansas who has proven to be a capable tight end in New Orleans.

2002 (7-9, missed playoffs; Mueller fired May 2002)

Traded RB Ricky Williams to Miami for 2 1st round picks

WR Donte Stallworth (drafted 1st round, 13th overall)

DE Charles Grant (drafted 1st round, 25th overall, pick acquired from Miami)

C LeCharles Bentley (drafted 2nd round)

WR Jerome Pathon (free agent)

OT Victor Riley (free agent)

DT Grady Jackson (free agent)

---Mueller traded Williams to Miami in 2002 for 2 1st round picks, one of those picks used in 2002 to select Charles Grant. He and Darren Howard are one of the better defensive end duos in football. Stallworth has showed promise in New Orleans, but will best be remembered by Seahawks fans as the player who got hit hard by Ken Hamlin in 2003. Bentley is currently a starter on the Saints’ offensive line.

Pathon and Riley are still in New Orleans, while Jackson is now in Green Bay

It's unbelievable that he hasn't been pursued by a bunch of teams, he's one of the best in the league. Although he did make the mistake of keeping Brooks over Delhomme and Bulger (not sure if that was all his fault though).

Randy does have a nice little track record. I would guess that since he has a history of making moves on/near draft day, RW could easily be traded. I doubt he stands pat this offseason. An upgrade at QB perhaps? This type of rumor is right up his ally.-- Ricky Williams & a First-Rounder for David Carr? --Mon Jan 16, 2006 --from FFMastermind.comThe New York Daily News reports one rumor circulating has the Miami Dolphins trading RB Ricky Williams and their first-round pick (No.16), to Houston for QB David Carr.

He was a great hire by Miami. As a Bills fan, I'm pretty worried that Saban/Mueller could turn into another version of Belichick/Pioli.

-- Ricky Williams & a First-Rounder for David Carr? --

The New York Daily News reports one rumor circulating has the Miami Dolphins trading RB Ricky Williams and their first-round pick (No.16), to Houston for QB David Carr.
He has stated his dislike of Ricky before and I think he is gone. If they trade for Carr I think it's a good move for both teams, considering the Texans really want the home town guy and this trade would give them two Texas guys.
