New Chiefs GM Dorsey's Focus To Be On Personnel; Calls Role His "Dream Job"

SEARCH PARTIES: CBSSPORTS.com’s Jason La Canfora writes of the Jets’ and Browns’ GM vacancies, “I can't imagine the two general manager searches linger much longer.” Most NFL staffs will be “assembling at the Senior Bowl soon enough and you want to have a structure in place with decisions coming up on the roster, contracts, franchise players, etc.” The Jets have “cut a tremendously wide swath, focusing the first portion of their search on candidates with more of a scouting/evaluation background, and then another stage with candidates with more a cap/business side background.” The team “can't hire both," so it will be "interesting to see where they go with this.” The Browns have “identified some candidates and asked for permission to interview them, but don't seem as far along in their search.” The team has “put together several top executives" under CEO Joe Banner, but has yet to fill the GM position. With Banner having “final say, and the coach already put in place by the front office, this won't be a scenario in which the general manager will have as much power as in some others” (CBSSPORTS.com, 1/14).
