Add another name to the official list of candidates for the Detroit Lions and their vacant general manager position. The Lions will interview Indianapolis Colts assistant GM Ed Dodds for the position on Tuesday.

The news was first reported by Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press and quickly confirmed by other media in both cities.

Dodds has already interviewed with the Carolina Panthers for the GM openings with that team, and the Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans have also been connected by various outlets. However, Dodds removed his name from consideration with Carolina over the weekend. He has been selective in interviewing in the past, also refusing overtures from the Cleveland Browns last year.

The well-regarded Dodds has been with the Colts since 2017. Prior to that, he was a senior executive of player personnel with the Seattle Seahawks and was actively involved in assembling the core of the Russell Wilson/Legion of Boom teams in Seattle.
