The Bears reportedly have one less name to consider for their General Manager opening.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that Colts assistant G.M. Ed Dodds has told the team that he’s withdrawing his name from consideration. Dodds interviewed with the team earlier this week.

It’s not clear if Dodds is planning to remain with the Colts or if he’s putting full effort into landing another job. The Raiders requested permission to interview him for the vacancy created by Mike Mayock’s firing earlier this week.

The Bears have interviewed a number of candidates for the job since firing Ryan Pace after the end of the regular season. They are also looking for a new head coach and holding interviews for that position at the same time as they meet potential General Managers.

  1. I am not sure who in their right mind would want to move to Illinois…especially Northeast Illinois these days.

  2. Wonder if the Bears told him that he would not have input or control over the HC decision, or if the Bears are granting the HC a level of control over personnel decisions.

  3. seeing it all up close, he was so disgusted by the Bears organization he wanted no part…

  4. First question, “why did you trade for Carson Wentz?”

    “Ya know what? I take my name off the list. Bye”
