    Sources told ESPN that interim general manager Marty Hurney is a candidate.

    They said the team will also interview other candidates, including Houston Texans assistant GM Jimmy Ray III and Buffalo Bills assistant director of college scouting Lake Dawson.

    Last year, team owner Jerry Richardson fired then-GM Dave Gettleman eight days before the team reported to training camp.
