Ever wonder who really pulls the strings of your favorite team?
NFL.com's Albert Breer has the answers.
He's currently bouncing from squad to squad and division to division, lifting the veil on how every franchise operate. It's an engaging, behind-the-scenes look, with more than a few surprises.
Delving into the NFC South, it's confirmed that New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis holds sway over personnel decisions and the 53-man slate, but "this is very much (coach Sean) Payton's show, and his fingerprints are all over the roster," Breer writes.
Down in Carolina, the relationship between newish Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman and coach Ron Rivera remains "a work in progress." In fact, Breer reports the two never even laid eyes on each other until they met for breakfast "the day after Gettleman was hired in January."
There's plenty more where this came from. Check out Breer's reporting here.
