Brian Xanders to interview for Dolphins' general manager job

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions' Brian Xanders is set to speak with the Miami Dolphins about their general manager job.

Detroit Lions senior personnel executive Brian Xanders is a candidate for the Miami Dolphins' general manager job. It turns out that Xanders is scheduled to interview with the Dolphins for that job on Tuesday, according to Tim Twentyman.

Xanders joined the Lions last January in the senior personnel executive role. His main assignment last offseason was to overhaul Detroit's scouting system, and whether it was a coincidence or not, the Lions put together one of their best drafts and undrafted free agent classes in quite some time.

Prior to joining the Lions, Xanders was the general manager of the Denver Broncos from 2009-12. With this in mind, it's no surprise that he is getting interest from the Dolphins for their general manager job. Xanders is probably going to end up getting another chance to be a GM in the NFL at some point, although it remains to be seen if he will actually land this particular job.

The Lions have to be hoping that the Dolphins go in another direction, because adding Xanders to the front office was a solid move. He has had a very positive effect on the Lions, and it'd be a shame for the team to lose him after only one year on the job.
