Reports: Chiefs' Ray Farmer getting GM consideration

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The Chiefs have hired Andy Reid but not yet paired him with a GM. The leading candidate is believed to be the Packers' John Dorsey, but there's also an in-house candidate for the Chiefs.

You ready for a new name for the Kansas City Chiefs GM job?

Ray Farmer, the Chiefs' current director of pro personnel:

This is news but I'm not sure it changes what we previously thought -- that Green Bay Packers' executive John Dorsey is the "clear-cut favorite" to land the Chiefs job. As far as I know, that's still the expectation. But things can and, especially this week, often do change.

This may not be Farmer's only GM interview. Per ESPN, the Browns are interested, too.

Farmer isn't a name you hear around the Chiefs every day. Here's his bio:

Ray Farmer begins his seventh season with the Chiefs as the club's Director of Pro Personnel in 2012. He joined Kansas City after a four-year stint working as a pro scout with the Atlanta Falcons from 2002-05. Farmer oversees the scouting of all players with professional experience. In addition to evaluating current players in the NFL, he also scouts players in the Canadian Football League and all other pro leagues.
