We reported on Wednesday that the Rams have requested permission to interview Ravens director of player personnel Eric DeCosta for the vacant director of player personnel position in St. Louis. And we linked to another report that the Colts have done the same.
Jeff Zrbiec of the Baltimore Sun reports (after reiterating the Rams’ and Colts’ interest in DeCosta) that another team has contacted the Ravens, too.
The other two teams with current G.M. openings are the Raiders and the Bears.
DeCosta, 40, is an original member of the Ravens front office. Regarded as the eventual successor to G.M. Ozzie Newsome, it’s unknown whether DeCosta would leave Baltimore.
That said, it doesn’t hurt to have options, even if at the end of the day DeCosta opts to renew his vows with the Ravens.
UPDATE 2:22 p.m. ET: Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Bears have requested permission to interview DeCosta. There’s still a chance that the unknown team from the Sun report was the Raiders.
