This means she has a lot of various connections throughout the football industry. This will come into play when it comes time to check references and to fact check things a candidate will say when he interviews with the panel.Carson Wentz Jersey While the people in the interview room will be making the decisions, it never hurts to get a second opinion from someone on the outside and that's exactly what Aponte will be able to do.

"Every project I gave Dawn came back better, every idea she had was well thought out, her answer was never, ‘No,Eli Apple Jersey' and I could never give her enough work," Tannenbaum said. "It was a no-brainer to move her from accounting to the football side. The fact she was a woman may have given some people initial pause,Darron Lee Jersey but you spent 10 seconds with her and see how prepared she is. She's the kind of person you want in the room if you want to win."
Aponte has received a lot of hate throughout her time with the Dolphins but the reality is that she is one of the biggest assets the team has. She is an important figure in the way the organization is run and she will continue to be there under Tannenbaum, whether you like it or not.
