Say this about Jeff Fisher’s decision-making process: what it loses in the stretched-out-beyond-all-reason department it makes up for in the leakproof area.

Fisher, former coach of the Tennessee Titans, is mulling offers from the Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams and, according to the Miami Herald, is expected to make his decision today.

Michael Lombardi of says it “appears he will choose the Dolphins.”

On Sunday, Fox’s Jay Glazer said Fisher’s choice would be the Rams; later Sunday night, Peter King pointed out that if it came down to money, the Dolphins would be the winner.

Miami fired coach Tony Sparano in mid-December; the Rams fired Steve Spagnuolo after the final game of the regular season
