Report: George Paton turns down Chiefs G.M. interview

After being considered for a couple other G.M. jobs, Vikings Assistant General Manager George Paton has decided not to interview for another.

Paton declined an interview for the Chiefs G.M. vacancy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

The Colts and 49ers both considered Paton for their G.M. vacancies in January, so his name has been bandied about a lot in the NFL this offseason. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him get a G.M. job next year.

But this year, he’ll remain in Minnesota, and the Chiefs will keep looking, with no word yet on who the strongest candidates are.

    Chiefs FO is a dumpster fire now. Who would want the job knowing that Andy is now calling all the shots?

    Somewhere, Ted Thompson is still trying to figure out if the defense is X’s or the O’s.

    Maybe the Chiefs can try Dwight Eishower next.

    I think it is extremely funny that in an article not having anything to do with Packers, nor with any derogatory comments from their fans, these Mud Ducks from Minnesota are so traumatized by Big Brother to the East that they still try to trash their team, players, coaches and fans. A classic example of an inferiority complex. skLOL.

    Dumpster Fire??? Stacked roster. QB of the future. Top 6 coach signed up for 5 years. yeah, sounds terrible.

    Who Cares. Paton wouldn’t be able to fill the big hole Dorsey has left behind.

    Who’s fooling who ??
    Only an ambitious front office guy who sees this as their only opportunity for a GM spot will interview. The job will actually be doing the dirty work Andy Reid doesn’t have time for. Andy will be the BOSS. You do as I say.

    All “hating” aside, jackwagon has a point. What GM worth his salt is going to be interested knowing that the HC is already there and actually runs the show?

    It’s a problem that’s usually only seen in perennially dysfunctional franchises like the Bills.

    he is already assistant g.m. so it isn’t really a promotion. and who becomes the fall guy if andy picks danny watkins jr.?

  14. Frazier28/7 says: Jun 26, 2017 1:29 PM

    why would you want to take GM job after the draft and free agency are over and you’re weeks away from training camp?? He’s smart to stick with his current team.

    And who wants to work with Andy Reid? He still think Childo is a good coach. Sickening.

    General George Paton considered trading the Vikings for the Chiefs? If I were him and facing that decision I would surrender to the Japanese.
