Marc Ross Rumors, Updated: Jacksonville Jaguars interested

New York Giants' Director of College Scouting Marc Ross has now been contacted by four NFL teams who want to interview him regarding their vacant general manager positions.

Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL.com reported earlier Thursday that Ross has now been contacted by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He had previously been contacted by the New York Jets, San Diego Chargers and Carolina Panthers. With former Giants' GM Ernie Accorsi running the search in Carolina, some consider Ross the favorite for that job.

SB Nation's Jaguars web site, Big Cat Country, recently tried to make the case that the Jacksonville job would be one of the most attractive for any GM candidate.

... the job in Jacksonville may be the most attractive of them all.

With two top 33 selections and no players that are "must plays" like perhaps Brandon Weeden of the Browns. In fact, the Jaguars are very much a clean slate for a general manager that can shape the team entirely in the manner that he exists.

Is money an issue? Not at all with Shahid Khan reportedly prepared to spend the money necessary to make the Jaguars a winner in a hurry. Couple that with plenty of cap space and a team that is devoid of bad contracts like the Mark Sanchez mess that the next GM will have to deal with, and the Jaguars are the perfect canvas to build from scratch.

Whether it is Jacksonville or elsewhere Ross certainly does appear to have options.
