RPT: Five interviews in, Dolphins like Farmer most


The Miami Dolphins have interviewed five candidates for their vacant general manager position and have a couple more meetings on the way, but they have an idea of what they want.

According to The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, Cleveland Browns assistant general manager Ray Farmer is the leader in the clubhouse.

Salguero quotes a source, who says Farmer has been "the most impressive."

So far, the Dolphins have met with their own assistant general manager Brian Gaine for the position, as well as executives from the Arizona Cardinals, Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans in Jason Licht, Omar Khan and Lake Dawson, respectively.

The Dolphins, however, have yet to meet with New York Giants vice president of player evaluation or Philadelphia Eagles vice president of player personnel Tom Gamble. Both are expected to be frontrunners for the gig alongside Farmer.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is getting some help in the GM search from former longtime Kansas City Chiefs executive Carl Peterson, who is an old friend of Ross.
