    Sources: Mike Mayock emerges as candidate for Redskins GM

    • Adam Schefter
    • Field Yates
    Washington is not likely to hire a GM until after the draft, and it has a group of candidates that is thought to include Mayock and ESPN analyst Mark Dominik, per league sources.

    The Redskins are not rushing to fill the opening that was created Thursday, when they fired Scot McCloughan. Washington easily could wind up waiting until after next month's NFL draft to hire its next general manager, per sources.

    Mayock released a statement later Friday, saying that he has not had any contact with the Redskins.

    "Regarding Adam Schefter's report about the Redskins GM position: There has been no official contact between myself and the team and no interviews about the job," Mayock said in his statement, which was released by the NFL Network. "My focus and energy -- as it typically is this time of year -- is squarely focused on the NFL Draft and NFL Network's coverage of that event ... this year in my hometown of Philly!"

    Mayock has been considered for other front-office NFL jobs at various points but has declined to make the jump from television to a team.

    Hall of Fame Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis, who once hired and helped teach Washington president Bruce Allen, thought highly of Mayock, and the Washington organization does as well. Mayock also has a good relationship with Redskins head coach Jay Gruden.

    The Redskins' interest in Mayock is the latest case of teams identifying television analysts as candidates for front-office positions.

    The San Francisco 49ers hired Fox Sports' John Lynch as their GM in January and also interviewed ESPN's Louis Riddick for the position.

      Larry Michael on Mike Mayock: "I can tell you right now, he's NOT being considered for the general manager position."

      Because he told them to stop floating his name out there to increase their public credibility.

      Snyder/Allen trying Jedi mind trick to divert attention from how dysfunctional those two are. Mayock will never be interested in those two.

        CBS report suggests all is not well with Sean McDermott-Doug Whaley pairing

        Every bit of available evidence since Sean McDermott arrived would suggest he’s the man running the show for the Buffalo Bills.

        Despite saying at his introductory press conference that General Manager Doug Whaley would maintain control over the 90-man roster, it has been the coach serving as the “one voice” for every decision the team has made, including the drawn-out process that led quarterback Tyrod Taylor being brought back. Whaley won't even be present at the team's annual pre-draft luncheon April 20, which has been commonplace since he took over.

        That could be because Whaley’s most recent press conferences have been painful from a public-relations standpoint. Or, it could indicate that the new coach is calling the shots, and that Whaley’s power within the organization has been diminished.

        Since being hired, the Bills have released cornerbacks Nickell Robey-Coleman, kicker Dan Carpenter and safeties Corey Graham and Aaron Williams. Those are all players Whaley signed to contracts, or extensions.

        Taylor has been retained – a decision that left up to Whaley likely would have been different. Several reports last season, both locally and nationally, suggested that the Bills’ general manager was ready to move on from the quarterback.

        Scott Berchtold, the team’s long-time vice president of communications, was replaced by Derek Boyko, with whom McDermott had a previous relationship with from their time together in Philadelphia.

        All of that suggests McDermott is calling the shots at One Bills Drive. Keep that in mind when digesting the following from CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, published Thursday.

        “I continue to hear that new Bills coach Sean McDermott has growing cachet with ownership and that team could be bringing in vice presidents and/or personnel figures with ties to the coach in the near future,” La Canfora writes. “Panthers director of player personnel is someone particularly well thought of who could end up in Buffalo after the draft in one capacity or another. There are already rumblings that the marriage of McDermott and Bills Gm Doug Whaley likely isn’t built to last.”

        While it may seem odd on the surface to change general managers right after the draft, that is when most moves with the scouting department take place. Whaley took over for Buddy Nix shortly after the 2013 draft, for example.

        The Bills’ power structure has both Whaley and McDermott reporting directly to owners Terry and Kim Pegula, so if the coach has their ears, a change could indeed take place.

        Getting along with the head coach is something Whaley has been unable to do in two previous chances with the Bills. While it seemed like he was getting a third, based on La Canfora’s report Thursday, that could be coming to an end sooner than later.
        Amazing to me he's lasted this long. Incompetent.

            Rams informed outgoing scouts of the changes now, before draft, may give them small jump on other openings which generally happen post-draft

            Carthon among many scouts/execs with expiring contracts after the draft. Many are aware now they are out as GM Les Snead oversees changes

            Rams undergoing big scouting changes . Informed at least 4 evaluators, including head of college scouting Ran Carthon they won't be back ...

              Bills have fired their GM Doug Whaley.

              Bills' HC Sean McDermott had taken over this team in every way. Doug Whaley had been phased out, well before today. Now it's just official.

                          "It's great for an organization to have $40,000 a year scouts, but nothing can replace experience -- especially lots of it. You're seeing teams bringing in multiple high level experienced guys to their front office to help with the draft these days, because the draft is more important than it has even been.

                          Buffalo brought in Dennis Hickey (former Dolphins GM) as a scout and Beane and Gaine and the others... What that tells you is you've got an owner who's willing to spend the money and a GM who's secure enough in himself to surround himself with the highest level of scouting talent he can get. This is really great news for Bills fans."

                            Mike Zimmer said on Saturday he had his eighth surgery on his right eye on Wednesday, removing an oil bubble from his eye and inserting a gas bubble. Zimmer is unable to fly for six weeks after the surgery. He said he hopes the operation is his last on his right eye, but added, "I've thought that before."
