After one year as assistant general manager for the Cleveland Browns, Ray Farmer has become a hot commodity in the National Football League, which is why he is on the Miami Dolphins' radar.
Farmer was the fourth candidate to interview with Dolphins owner Steve Ross for the team's vacant General Manager position but the only one to interview today. Brian Gaine, Omar Khan and Jason Licht all interviewed yesterday.
Prior to being hired in Cleveland last year along with new general manager Michael Lombardi, Farmer spent seven seasons (2006-12) with the Kansas City Chiefs. He worked under Carl Petersen, who is the current advisor to Ross in this hiring process, and was Kansas City's director of pro personnel overseeing the scouting of all professional players in the NFL, CFL and other leagues.
Farmer was a pro scout with the Atlanta Falcons from 2002-05. He played three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles (1996-98) at linebacker after and joining the team as a fourth-round draft selection in 1996 out of Duke. Farmer played in 32 games with 16 starts before a knee injury ended his playing career
