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.
