The long, winding search for a general manager in St. Louis is finally over.

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Falcons director of player personnel Les Snead accepted the job as Rams G.M.  Florio noted an hour ago that Snead had entered contract talks.

It’s been quite an offseason for former Falcons personnel men. Phil Emery, who moved from Atlanta to Kansas City a few years ago, got the G.M. job in Chicago. Both Emery and Snead were written about in Michael Holley’s book War Room.

Snead was with the Falcons for 13 seasons. Vikings director of player personnel George Paton was reportedly the front-runner for the Rams job, but he took a promotion in Minnesota Saturday.
