Current Green Bay Packers director of football operations John Dorsey is being linked to multiple GM jobs, and the reports seem to have legs. He appears to have a shot at the Jets and Chiefs GM jobs, with the latter team not yet having fired their GM.

Update: The Kansas City Chiefs have fired Scott Pioli.

It's too early to dive very far into this, but these reports won't go away. Dorsey has 22 years of experience in player personnel and obviously did a brilliant job in his 12 years as director of college scouting.

When you're consistently successful in the NFL, other teams attempt to poach and promote your important personnel. Joe Philbin and Reggie McKenzie will not be the last disciple of Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy to leave Green Bay, nor will the two men currently rumored to be interested in head coach (Tom Clements) and GM jobs.
