A fourth candidate has now emerged in the Lions search for a permanent general manager.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Lions plan to interview New York Giants assistant general manager Kevin Abrams for their GM opening.
Abrams is in his 14th season as the Giants' assistant general manager. He previously served three years as the team's salary cap analyst.
He is the primary negotiator for player contracts and is responsible for managing the Giants' salary cap and player salary budget, related strategic planning for football operations and coordinating the organization's compliance with the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement, according to his bio on the Giants' official website.
Abrams also works with the College and Pro Personnel departments to evaluate players in preparation for the NFL Draft and free agency.
He's the fourth known candidate the Lions plan to interview for the position. The team also plans to meet with interim general manager Sheldon White, Seattle Seahawks co-director of player personnel Trent Kirchner and New England Patriots director of pro scouting Bob Quinn.
