The Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Rams have requested permission to interview Baltimore Ravens director of player personnel Eric DeCosta for their vacant general manger positions, league sources have told NFL Network's Jason La Canfora.
DeCosta has been identified by Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti as the eventual successor to general manager Ozzie Newsome, but that hasn't stopped his name coming up as a candidate for nearly every available general manager position.
NFL Network's Albert Breer reported DeCosta would consider the jobs in both Chicago and Indianapolis, according to sources.
DeCosta has been high on the Bears' list since the team fired general manager Jerry Angelo on Monday. Atlanta Falcons director of player personnel Les Snead, Tennessee Titans vice president of football operations Lake Dawson, Arizona Cardinals director of player personnel Steve Keim and Kansas City Chiefs director of pro personnel Ray Farmer are also under consideration, league sources told La Canfora.
The Colts' search for a general manager is also underway as owner Jim Irsay has contacted several teams for permission to interview candidates following the firing of Bill Polian.
In addition to DeCosta, La Canfora reported the Rams have already talked to Miami Dolphins director of player personnel Brian Gaine and have Snead on their list. The Rams fired GM Billy Devaney on Monday, along with coach Steve Spagnuolo.
