NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport has reported on what is a growing list of candidates. Here's who we have so far as Clark Hunt attempts to fill the vacancy:
Brett Veach, Chiefs: Veach is Kansas City's top in-house candidate, Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation.
Scott Fitterer, Seahawks: Rapoport reported the Chiefs are slated to interview Fitterer Tuesday or early Wednesday, per a source informed. Fitterer is one of Seattle's many rising talents and rose to help run personnel from the college scouting ranks. A lot of Seattle's draft success should be credited to Fitterer, Rapoport wrote in January.
George Paton, Vikings: Paton was a target on the Chiefs' list -- K.C. requested to speak with the Vikings assistant GM -- but for a variety of reasons Paton will stay put in Minnesota, Rapoport reported per sources. Paton was also a favorite for the 49ers' GM job back in January before San Francisco ultimately hired John Lynch.
