Xanders’ interview lasted two days

If duration of interview means anything, Lions senior personnel executive Brian Xanders may have acquired an upper hand in connection with the Dolphins’ search for a new General Manager.

Xanders, the former G.M. of the Broncos, had a two-day interview for the job, per a league source.

While the specific duration of the other five interviews isn’t known, it’s unlikely that any one candidate had a two-day interview, given that five other interviews happened in only a three-day period.

It’s unclear how many more interviews are planned in the first wave, and when (or if) a second round of interviews will commence.

Beyond Xanders, the team has interviewed Browns assistant G.M. Ray Farmer, 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.
