Richards: GM search could be long

Phil Richards writes that although Irsay probably has some candidates in mind, the search shall not be a short one for good reason:

Irsay is a thoughtful decision-maker and careful planner. He no doubt has someone in mind, and the likelihood of the process taking time suggests his candidate or candidates could be with playoff teams. The NFL’s anti-tampering policy specifically defines rules protecting the rights of employer clubs while providing outside advancement opportunities for their employees.

His candidates could include promising personnel executives like John Dorsey, Green Bay’s director of college scouting, or Reggie McKenzie, the Packers’ director of football operations. Irsay could be looking at Eric DeCosta, Baltimore’s director of player personnel, or Jason Licht, New England’s director of pro personnel.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
