Terry Fontenot emerges as GM candidate for Detroit Lions

According to a report from Jeff Duncan of The Athletic, the Detroit Lions have expressed interest in New Orleans Saints pro personnel director Terry Fontenot for their current general manager opening.

Fontenot has been with the Saints organization since 2003, meaning he has been part of a winning franchise that has won a Super Bowl.

Per league rules, the Lions will not be able to interview Fontenot until the regular season is over. At that point, they will be able to meet with him virtually until the Saints are eliminated from the playoffs.
