george-paton-2011

Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press┬áreports 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.

    Before all the cheesers chime in, let me beat them to the punch — have the Rams looked at the Vikings player-personnel lately?

    Are these the kind of articles we have to look forward to during the offseason?

    And that was quite the shrewd move he made, trading for Jason Allen. Not only were the Texans totally fleeced in the trade. Paton’s genius was revealed when the team converted Jason Allen from CB to DE.

    Am I the only one who thought it said George Patton at first?

    George S. Patton is a better candidate.

    Just to add to this open ended story they also interviewed Les Snead twice. But who’s counting…..

    Well, any man who commanded allied ground troops through the Normandy invasion and the Battle of the Bulge should be able to handle running an NFL team.

    I guess the Vikings look like a successful franchise compared to the Rams.
