Although it isn't a surprise, here it is:
Both Ravens ass't GM Eric DeCosta and Vikings ass't GM George Paton have told teams they are staying put. So 2 off the market, for now.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) January 1, 2015
Both DeCosta and Paton have rejected interview requests in the past. DeCosta in particular was a long shot, but there was hope that the New York Jets could convince him to at least interview, as he is always the number one choice in a GM search. The Chicago Bears also put in an interview request.
On to the next candidate.
