Cross Chris Ballard off Buccaneers G.M. list

One of the first names to emerge as a possibility to be the Buccaneers new General Manager was Chiefs director of player personnel Chris Ballard.

But he won’t be leaving Kansas City, as the Chiefs have blocked him from interviewing for the job, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.

With coach Lovie Smith having final say over personnel, the process became more complicated (although the Packers allowed John Dorsey to go to Kansas City under similar circumstances last year).

Falcons director of player personnel Lionel Vital and Giants V.P. of player evaluation Marc Ross are the other known candidates at the moment, and both have been given permission to interview.

    That was really hypocritical of them.

    Then again, it should be expected.

    If they want him bad enough they should offer up a draft pick. Smart move KC

    How was John Dorsey’s situation similar? He has final say over all personnel in KC.
