A couple weeks ago, Paul Kuharsky of the AFC South blog mentioned Ruston Webster and Randy Mueller as potential general manager candidates with coach Jeff Fisher in St. Louis.
Mueller remains in a front-office role with San Diego. Kuharsky mentioned Mueller in connection with Fisher because the Titans had interest in him before they ultimately hired Mike Reinfeldt in 2008, back when Fisher was Tennessee's head coach. Mueller, then with Miami, was not allowed to interview.
Fisher and the Titans met with Webster, Reggie McKenzie, Ron Hill, Mike Ackerley and Charles Bailey before hiring Reinfeldt. Webster and McKenzie are GMs, making them off-limits. Hill works for the NFL. Ackerley is with the Houston Texans. Bailey worked for the Jaguars and is out of the league.
The Rams could in head another direction entirely. These are some names with known connections to Fisher.
Before hiring Fisher, St. Louis interviewed the Atlanta Falcons' Les Snead as a GM candidate. The Rams also interviewed Ryan Grigson, subsequently hired by Indianapolis. Arizona's Steve Keim has also been under consideration, although his candidacy appeared more natural when the Cardinals' Ray Horton was a candidate to become head coach.
