The Indianapolis Colts have requested to interview the top candidate for the San Francisco 49ers general manager job - Minnesota Vikings assistant general manager George Paton.


The 49ers plan to meet with Paton this week for a second interview. On Saturday, the Colts fired general manager Ryan Grigson after five seasons with the team.

Paton completed his 10th season with Minnesota, working under general manager Rick Spielman. He was a finalist for the general manager job with the St. Louis Rams in 2012. Since then, he has turned down multiple interviews from teams like the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, and Chicago Bears for their general manager positions. Paton also rejected proposed meetings with the Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions last winter.
