Ex-Broncos' GM would be good fit for Rams
By Mike Sando
The St. Louis Rams' ongoing front-office shuffling brings to mind a name for consideration: Brian Xanders.
Xanders, out this week as the Denver Broncos' general manager, worked with new Rams GM Les Snead in Atlanta. He would fit well with Snead in St. Louis as the Rams reconfigure their personnel department.
It's not yet clear whether Xanders is a consideration for St. Louis, but Snead has already hired a couple scouts from the Falcons. The moves are consistent with post-draft changes teams tend to make as they complete the transition to new leadership.
Xanders' departure from the Broncos would seem to say more about John Elway's tightening grip over personnel matters in Denver than it says about Xanders, who left on good terms with the organization.
