Dolphins interview Brian Xanders


For the first time in three days, the Miami Dolphins have announced that another candidate for the team’s vacant G.M. job has been interviewed.

The latest candidate is Lions senior personnel executive Brian Xanders, the former G.M. of the Broncos.

It’s possible that Xanders is being evaluated for a job other than G.M., with a potential offer coming to join a front office that could be led by possible front-runner Ray Farmer.  As we hear it, Xanders and Farmer are close friends.

Beyond Xanders and Farmer, the Browns’ assistant G.M., the Dolphins have interviewed Titans V.P. of player personnel Lake Dawson, Dolphins assistant G.M. Brian Gaine, Steelers director of football and business administration Omar Khan, and Cardinals V.P. of player personnel Jason Licht.

The Dolphins have been interested in other candidates, including Eagles V.P. of player personnel Tom Gamble, Seahawks senior personnel executive Scot McCloughan, and Ravens assistant G.M. Eric DeCosta.  None of those three are interested in the Dolphins, however, and some believe that the lingering dysfunction in the front office has scared off these — and perhaps other — candidates.

Last night, we reported that the Dolphins are interested in Vikings assistant G.M. George Paton.  It’s still not clear whether he’ll interview for the job.

    You can’t blame the top candidates for not being interested in Miami, who would want to report to Dawn Aponte! It’s concerning that the candidates that the Dolphins leading candidates haven’t been interviewed or even considered by other teams.

    Lions are hoping he stays , we had our best draft in yrs he has to stay.

    He won’t be reporting to Dawn Aponte! Steve Ross already announced the future GM will be reporting to HIM.

    Isn’t this the guy who drafted Tim Tebow in the first round? And don’t tell me about the starters he drafted in Denver. If your roster’s bad enough, its easy to find starters.
