The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of a handful of teams looking for both a new head coach and general manager. While most of the focus has been on Urban Meyer and the coaching hire, the team is also quietly interview general manager candidates as well. The next one up on the list is former Cleveland Browns general manager and current Los Angeles Rams scouting consultant Ray Farmer.
Farmer started his personnel career as a scout with the Atlanta Falcons and quickly moved to be the director of pro personnel for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2006 through 2012, before being picked up as the assistant general manager for the Cleveland Browns in 2013, which eventually turned into the general manager role for the next two seasons.
Farmer’s short stint with the Browns was with a little bit of controversy, which included a suspension for violating league rules for texting coaching staff members play-calling during games.
