It previously was believed that the San Francisco 49ers interviewed for the recently-filled G.M. position only candidates who were not working for NFL teams or, in the case of the guy who got the job, someone who works for the Niners, Trent Baalke.
Quietly, one candidate who is currently employed with another club was interviewed.
We’re told that Falcons director of player personnel Les Snead interviewed for the job, presumably on Monday.
Because the Falcons have a bye, candidates could be interviewed this week. However, it’s unlikely that 49ers would have been able to hire Snead before the conclusion of the Falcons’ season.
