The Jaguars are set to interview Ray Farmer for their GM vacancy, as Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets. The former Browns GM has been out of the limelight since his 2015 ouster, but he’s had momentum as a potential candidate in this cycle.
This marks the second interview Farmer has received since the Browns let him go. In the summer of 2019, the Texans met with him just 24 hours after firing Brian Gaine. Farmer’s two-year Cleveland tenure did not go well, but he has been featured as a Fritz Pollard Alliance candidate in previous offseasons. He’s also done some consulting work for the Rams.
It’s worth noting that Farmer’s win-loss record wasn’t the only blemish on his Browns resume. In 2015, the NFL suspended Farmer four games for texting coaches during games in 2014.
Meanwhile, the Jaguars are also in the midst of their head coaching search. After firing Doug Marrone on Monday, the Jaguars are believed to be targeting former Florida and Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.
