Jets' Joey Clinkscales To Interview For St. Louis Rams GM Position

The New York Jets' Joey Clinkscales will interview to become the St. Louis Rams' general manager, ESPN reports.

The Rams asked and received permission to interview Clinkscales for the vacancy. Clinkscales has been with the Jets for 17 years and now serves as the team's vice president of college scouting, a role that has him oversee most of the team's draft proceedings, including pre-draft meetings.

Along with assistant general manager Scott Cohen and senior personal exec Terry Bradway, according to ESPN, Clinkscales is one of the executives on whom general manager Mike Tannenbaum leans the strongest.

The Rams' opening at general manager isn't the most desirable in the league. St. Louis has won 10 games in the past three seasons combined and just finished a 2-14 season, leaving a big rebuilding project for whoever decides to take the job. There's also a question of how much authority any general manager will have -- the Rams are rumored to be interested in hiring long-time head coach Jeff Fisher, who would presumably want at least some measure of control over personnel decisions.
