Just when the Seattle Seahawks thought they were out of the water, another general manager job opens up and one of their brightest minds is up for consideration yet again.
According to NFL Networks Ian Rapoport, the Kansas City Chiefs have requested to interview co-director of player personnel, Scott Fitterer.

The young executive has been with Seattle since 2001 as an area scout. He rose to director of college scouting in 2010 and finally to his current post in 2015.
Fitterer had been rumored to be in consideration for multiple G.M. openings earlier in the year, including the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts job. His running mate Trent Kirchner, who serves under the same title, was also in the running for multiple jobs.
However, both remain in Seattle as of now.
Fitterer isn’t the only candidate up for the job. ESPN’s Louis Riddick was said to be among the options; although he denied that report over the weekend. According to USA Today’s Tom Pelissero, Titans executive Ryan Cowden is also on the short list of names.
The Seahawks have already lost one executive this offseason with Ed Dodds moving to Indianapolis to work with the Colts.
Fitterer realistically could be next.
