The NFL rumor mill is moving at a pretty good pace right now, especially with head coaches and GM-types. We know all about the Kansas City Chiefs coaching rumors -- Romeo Crennel, Joe Philbin, etc -- but one current Chiefs executive and a former Chiefs player have been mentioned in connection with front office jobs around the league.
Ray Farmer, the Chiefs Director of Pro Personnel. NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports the Chicago Bears, who have an opening at GM after firing Jerry Angelo, are considering the following: Eric DeCosta from the Baltimore Ravens, Les Snead from the Atlanta Falcons...and Farmer. He's been with the Chiefs for six seasons and I'd say you're usually doing something right if you survive a regime change. No word on whether there's any serious interest there on either side.
Another candidate La Canfora mentioned is Lake Dawson. Yes, that Lake Dawson. The Chiefs drafted him in the third round of the 1994 draft and he ended up staying in KC for four seasons. He's moved onto the business side of things in the league and he's also been named as someone under consideration.
The Bears considering these guys as candidates and the candidates actually considering them are different things.
