Rams GM Search: St. Louis Hires Les Snead, According To Report

The news came out on Saturday afternoon that one of the two finalists for the vacant St. Louis Rams general manager position, George Paton, had accepted a position as the assistant general manager for the Minnesota Vikings.

A short time later, Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reported that a source indicated the Rams hired the other finalist for the job, Les Snead. Snead was formerly the director of player personnel with the Atlanta Falcons organization.

Paton was rumored to be the early favorite in the process, but his promotion within the Vikings organization took him out of the running immediately. The Rams will hope to install a new GM in time for the NFL Scouting Combine and before the start of free agency in March.
