The buzz on favorites for GM jobs: Keim (AZ); Raye (SD); Gamble (Jets); Caldwell (Jax); Beane/Gettleman (Car); Dorsey (KC) ... CLE uncertain

Retweeted by Joe Person

This doesn't look accurate tbh, but if it is it looks like Ross is the Rivera of GM candidates with a ton of interest but no job. Always the bridesmaid...

I think you're missing my point. I never said I wanted Beane but all I was saying was that he has the edge AT THE MOMENT due to the fact that Richardson knows what he has done and knows what he will do. He will interview other candidates and more-than-likely see that there are other variable candidates outside of Beane.

I know you weren't endorsing Beane, and perhaps I was just pointing out the obvious. But the reality is JR can't know what Beane will do with things like the draft and contract negotiation because he has never done any of these things before.

It is just mind boggling to me that this guy is even a candidate.

Things starting to shake out on the GM front a bit.

Rich Cimini@RichCimini

Tom Gamble turned down second interview with Jags to focus on#Jets GM job, per @AdamSchefter. Jax leaning toward Dave Caldwell.

Adam Schefter@AdamSchefter

Jacksonville’s two GM finalists are Falcons director of player personnel Dave Caldwell and Cardinals director of player personal Steve Keim.

Noticed that too.

My conspiracy theory is that Ross ends up back in New York with a promotion to assistant GM. Kevin Abrams is forced out and joins Gettleman as a cap manager in Carolina.

I'm probably dreaming there, but that'd be a great combination.

If not Abrams, Mike Tannenbaum had a good rep as a cap manager before the Sanchez deal. He might be worth a look as a cap man only (no say in personnel at all).

I'm also intrigued by a Gettleman/Beane combo. I think Beane has a little more experience than he's being given credit for. Enough so that he would be helpful as a righthand man to a veteran like Gettleman. Have we ever had an heir apparent like that?

yes. marty hurney.

gettleman/abrams combo would be flat out awesome.

Caldwell is expected to get the Jaguars job, Gamble is expected to get the Jets GM spot. I'd expect that Gettleman gets the Panther's GM spot. KC's GM spot is either going to Dorsey or Heckart.

That leaves SD, Arizona and CLE.

Arizona is expected to promote Keim once all the GM mess is over. SD is said to prefer Telesco if they go outside the team. "Still expect Raye to get the GM spot"

So that leaves CLE and no one knows what they are doing till everything is squared away with Kelly.

Ross' best chance is here in Carolina and it seems he may be in last place if he wants his own coach.

I could see Beane/Gettlman both being here together. "Cap" guy and a "scouting" guy. Might actually be better that way. Two heads are better than one.

I still don't buy the thought that he'd insist on his own head coach.

Nobody outside of the one guy who was just a Giants blogger has said that.

Beane is not a cap guy. Rob Rogers is the cap guy.

Beane monitored budgets, coordinated logistics and made travel arrangements. He's essentially a glorified administrative assistant.
