After concluding the first series of interviews for their now vacant General Manager position, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reportedly begun inviting potential candidates back for second interviews. Among them, reports Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, is New York Giants Vice President of Player Evaluation, Marc Ross.

In addition to Ross, others that have either been invited back or are expected to be invited back include Atlanta Falcons Director of Player Personnel Lionel Vital, Tennessee Titans Vice President of Player Personnel Lake Dawson and Washington Redskins Director of Pro Personnel Morocco Brown.

Last year, Ross interviewed with the New York Jets, Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers for their general manager jobs but was not hired. Ironically enough, Ross' former colleague with the Giants, Dave Gettleman, was hired by the Panthers.

Ross first joined the Giants on May 18, 2007 and organized his first draft the following year. During his tenure as Director of College Scouting, the Giants have found draft gems in Terrell Thomas, Hakeem Nicks, Linval Joseph, Will Beatty, Jason Pierre-Paul, Prince Amukamara, Jacquian Williams, David Wilson and Rueben Randle to name a few.

In late May of last year, Ross was promoted to Vice President of Player Evaluation after his GM interviews fell through.

Along with the Buccaneers, Marc Ross also interviewed for the Miami Dolphins' vacant General Manager position this offseason.
