San Francisco 49ers director of pro personnel Tom Gamble remains one of the most sought after general manager candidates, and the Cleveland Browns became the latest team to request permission to interview Gamble, according to a report from Albert Breer of the NFL Network.
Gamble has already interviewed with the Jacksonville Jaguars while the New York Jets and San Diego Chargers have also requested permission to interview him for their general manager vacancies. With the 49ers on a bye week, Gamble is available to interview until January 6.
Gamble has plenty experience, having worked in the NFL for 24 years. He's in his seventh season with San Francisco and in addition to his current role as director of pro personnel, Gamble has also worked in college and pro scouting, as a contract negotiator and even as a coach.
If Cleveland is interested, they may have to act quickly. In addition to the interview with Jacksonville, Gamble is reportedly the New York Jets' top candidate to replace Mike Tannebaum.
