The curtain that the Carolina Panthers are keeping their general manager search behind may have opened just a bit on Saturday.
According to NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero, at least three candidates remain in the mix for the opening.
That bunch includes New York Giants assistant general manager Brandon Brown and Philadelphia Eagles assistant general manager Alec Halaby, both of whom reportedly received second interviews this past week. Pelissero also notes that Carolina’s own assistant general manager, Dan Morgan, also remains under consideration.
Compared to their hunt for a new head coach, the Panthers have kept this quest under wraps. Outside of announcing their interview requests back on Jan. 8, the team has not provided many updates throughout the process.
Other known candidates for the position include vice president of football administration Samir Suleiman, Baltimore Ravens vice president of football administration Nick Matteo, Detroit Lions chief operating officer Mike Disner, Indianapolis Colts assistant general manager Ed Dodds, Kansas City Chiefs vice president of football operations Brandt Tilis, Las Vegas Raiders interim general manager Champ Kelly, New Orleans Saints assistant general manager Khai Harley and Tampa Bay Buccaneers assistant general manager Mike Greenberg.
