Brown, Smith interviewing with other teams
By John Keim
Washington Redskins director of pro personnel Morocco Brown spent Friday interviewing for the vacant general manager's position in Tampa Bay, which could reunite him with coach Lovie Smith.
Brown worked for four years with Smith in Chicago and has been in his current spot with Washington since 2008. The Bucs also will interview Atlanta director of player personnel Lional Vitale and Tennessee Titans vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson. Tampa also might interview Giants vice president of player evaluation Marc Ross. There's a chance Tampa could name its new general manager by Monday, according to reports.
Brown is the only candidate of this group that has ties to Smith. Last offseason, Brown interviewed for the general manager's job in Arizona. Meanwhile, Redskins general manager Bruce Allen said on ESPN980 that senior executive A.J. Smith is being considered for an unnamed team's general manager position.
It's uncertain what direction the Redskins would go if they lost both men.
