New York Giants Director of College Scouting, Marc Ross, has already interviewed with both the Jacksonville Jaguars (Friday) and San Diego Chargers (Saturday) for their respective General Manager jobs, but his NFL tour is only just getting started. Ross will continue making the rounds on Monday as he returns to East Rutherford to interview with the New York Jets.
Previously thought to be the favorite of the Carolina Panthers, it looks as if they will go the way of Giants executive Dave Gettleman instead. And with the Jets already rumored to be preparing an offer for San Francisco 49ers Director of Player Personnel Tom Gamble, Ross may just be a pawn to satisfy the league's Rooney Rule.
There were also previous reports that indicated Ross had turned down the Jets for an interview because they insisted on retaining Rex Ryan as head coach, but they have turned out to be fabricated and erroneous.
At the start of 2012, Ross also interviewed with the Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears for their vacant GM positions, but remained with Big Blue.
