Steve Keim rumors: Jaguars target in contract talks with Cardinals

New, comments

Steve Keim has entered contract negotiations with the Arizona Cardinals.

Tim Fuller-US PRESSWIRE

The Jacksonville Jaguars reportedly have two finalists for their open general manager position, Steve Keim and David Caldwell. While Caldwell is getting a second interview with the New York Jets on Tuesday, Keim is now in contract negotiations with the Arizona Cardinals, according to a report by Albert Breer.

Keim has been in the mix for the Jaguars since last week, having some phone interviews with Jaguars owner Shad Khan. Keim however has been rumored to be the favorite to be simply promoted within the Cardinals organization to take over as their general manager. Keim has also been sitting in on the Cardinals head coaching interviews, which would lean towards Keim staying with Arizona.

The Jaguars search is likely going to come to a close sometime this week, but the field is beginning to become narrowed down as the "logic dominoes" start to fall into place. It appears Keim might be out of the Jaguars running.
