Arizona Cardinals vice president of player personnel Steve Keim interviewed with Jaguars owner Shad Khan Friday night and remains in the mix to replace general manager Gene Smith. A league source confirmed the meeting and Keim is believed to be the fourth candidate to talk with Khan, joining Atlanta’s David Caldwell, San Francisco’s Tom Gamble and the New York Giants’ Marc Ross. Khan has already met twice with Caldwell. Keim is also on San Diego’s list and as well as the Cardinals, which fired general manager Rod Graves last week.

But until it does – until the Jaguars finish their search for a general manager and begin the chain of events that will set the tone for the franchise’s foreseeable future – we’ll start taking a look at what that general manager candidate will inherit.
