Rams give George Paton second interview for G.M. job

Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the Rams have lined up a second interview with Vikings player personnel director George Paton regarding St. Louis’ general manager opening.

The Rams conducted their first round of interviews last week, meeting with at least six known candidates. Paton is the only G.M. target St. Louis is known to have contacted about round two.

Per Fowler, Paton’s second interview could take place “as early as today.” Paton has been in the Vikings’ organization since 2007. He reportedly played a significant role in the Vikings’ 2008 trade for defensive end Jared Allen.
