Les Snead On Chicago Bears Radar, According To Report

After firing general manager Jerry Angelo, the Chicago Bears are now on the hunt for a new general manager and may have found a target. Atlanta Falcons director of player personnel Les Snead is a candidate the Bears are working hard to bring in and interview, according to a report by Michael Wright of ESPN Chicago.

Chicago Bears president Ted Phillips said the search for Jerry Angelo's successor as general manager began in earnest Tuesday, and a league source said the club is "meticulously vetting" Atlanta Falcons director of player personnel Les Snead as a candidate to bring in to interview.

A 17-year veteran in NFL personnel matters, Snead, 37, will interview with the St. Louis Rams, according to the source. But at least three other teams, including the Bears, remain in serious play to secure the former scout's services.

There are four other teams who have expressed interest in Snead, including the St. Louis Rams who have him lined up for an interview. Snead was the director of pro scouting for the Falcons before he was promoted in 2009 and works closely with current Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff.
